Systems Engineering

Systems engineering methods produce highly reliable products and processes that withstand the test of time, yielding consistent financial results.

Every business is a system, integrated from many intricately connected subsystems, all of which must work correctly to achieve efficient and accurate results. Almost every business problem can be resolved using a systems engineering approach.

Any results oriented company with a high regard for the value of systems will benefit from a systems engineering project.

Building a system requires:

  1. A project plan
  2. Business results projections
  3. Resource requirements
  4. Well-grounded project justification
  5. Risk assessment

A Systems Engineering project is always results oriented, and starts with a well-defined problem. A repeating cycle of measurement and analysis assures progress towards the project goals. The generic process known as the “Plan Do Check Act” or PDCA cycle is well known in the Lean Six Sigma practice.

The DMAIC method is used to improve well-established business and manufacturing processes. The DMADV method is used to establish new products and new business processes.

Lean Manufacturing has its own systems engineering approach based on value stream mapping and A3 sheets. For products and processes requiring extremely high levels of safety and reliability, the RAMS method is used to improve Reliability, Availability, Maintainability, and Safety.
