Description: In this class we will explore system engineering via the ISO9000 product development process and will illustrate how to use this process to develop both products and research systems that meet necessary specifications. The first eight weeks emphasize system integration including the development of the product development plans, partitioning of a system into subsystems, quantitative analysis of system performance and the role of prototypes. The second half of the semester emphasizes the planning needed to take systems to manufacture. During the course the students will prepare a product development plan on a project that was selected during TEM 440 Screening Technical Opportunities. The course is intended to be interactive. A portion of the classes will be dedicated to "brain-storming" solutions to technical problems and formal design reviews where the students will review the project plans of other students.
