The economy is not a toaster

by Alta van der Merwe last modified 23 Jun, 2011 05:41 PM
Every engineering discipline, including systems engineering, is based on a number of assumptions. These assumptions are ofter unstated, usually taken for granted and seldom scrutinized for their validity. These assumptions also predetermine the range of applicablility of that engineering discipline. This paper clearly identifies the taken-for-granted assumptions of systems engineering and tests their validity against a range of typical application areas. This investigation will clearly delineate the applicability area of system engineering.
