SYE 6020 System Architecture

Prerequisite: SYE 6005 and SYE 6010 or MGNT 6050

3-0-3

Examination of concepts and techniques for architecting systems, the establishment of a bounded and integrated structure that provides a framework for system creation, work breakdown structures, cost analysis, and subcontractor control and interface will be reviewed. A structured approach to system architecture that proceeds from a topmost "system" to an aggregation and integration of systems created in lower level development layers, both internal and external to the developer as described in the standard ANSI/EIA-632 (Processes for Engineering a System) will be explored.
