Dr Michael Watson
The NASA Systems Engineering Research Consortium has generated a set of Systems Engineering Postulates, Principles, and Hypotheses to guide the approach to systems engineering. These Principles guide the engineering of the system and provide guidance in the application of systems engineering processes. Systems Engineering Principles address both the physical system and the integration of the engineering disciplines (i.e., social system) needed to develop and operate the system. System Principles describe the characteristics of the system itself. Various sets of Systems Principles have been reported in literature. The distinction between Systems Engineering Principles and System Principles is an important aspect to understand. The Systems Principles provide the scientific basis of the system and are fundamental to proper engineering of the system. The System Principles are related through this scientific basis of the system to the Systems Engineering Principles. This important relationship will be discussed to provide a more complete picture in understanding the principles of systems and of systems engineering.
