A Guide for System Life Cycle Processes and Activities

  • For the new systems engineer
  • For the engineer in another discipline who needs to perform systems engineering
  • For the experienced systems engineer who needs a convenient reference

The INCOSE Systems Engineering Handbook shows what each systems engineering process activity entails in the context of designing for affordability and performance. On some projects, a given activity may be performed very informally (e.g., on the back of an envelope, or in an engineer’s notebook); or, on other projects, a more formal response is required with interim products under formal configuration control. This book provides tools that lead to project success in all circumstances.

The Fourth Edition has an early 2015 publication date.

As a member benefit, the SE Handbook Fourth Edition will be available for download from the INCOSE Store to members, employees of CAB organizations, and students of Academic Council members.
