Change is Optional: Trends in Systems Engineering                                        

"It is not necessary to change. Survival is not mandatory." - W. Edwards Deming

Systems engineering is a practice and a profession in transition. For almost ten years, systems engineering has framed the transition as one from document-centric to model-based techniques. While an important part of our future, this aspect is only a small part of the required transformation. There are many more dimensions to the challenge as we move from the needs of the past to the problems of today. 

If we as systems engineers are to move beyond 20th century systems engineering, 

what must we address? How must we adapt, evolve, and transform to build for tomorrow?
