ENMG 601 - Systems Theory and Engineering

3 Credit Hours
Technology course that will examine theoretical foundations of General System Theory applied to engineering and organizational enterprises addressing issues concerning systems, the effectiveness of organizations in the context of traditional management related issues, as well as incorporating the critical impact of systems thinking on the socio-technical environment. Among the topics to be covered in the course are: the meaning of General Systems Theory (GST); GST and the unity of science; the concept of Equifinality; the characteristics and modeling of open systems; the concepts of the Learning Organization; the principle of Leverage; building Learning Organizations; and issues related to Socio-Technical Systems. Systems Engineering focuses on defining customer needs and required functionality early in the development cycle, documenting requirements, then proceeding with design synthesis and system validation while considering the complete problem including operations, performance, test, manufacturing, cost, and schedule. This subject emphasizes the links of systems engineering to fundamentals of decision theory, statistics, and optimization.
