ABSTRACT:   This presentation discusses the value of Systems Engineering and how we apply them to Transportation Systems in California.  What is systems engineering (SE)?  What do we mean by value and what determines value?  Some examples of transportation problems from the Department of California Transportation (CALTRANS) shall be presented to show the importance of performing the rigors of systems engineering and applying the SE V-Model in order to gain value to transportation projects.
