To reinforce the theory introduced in ZEIT8238 Systems Engineering Knowledge (3 UoC), this project course involves a simulated design exercise that allows students to apply knowledge of systems engineering processes and management to real-life system development.  Throughout the exercise, students develop operational scenarios and the necessary life-cycle support for an example system. Students are required to discuss the role of systems engineering management in the development of an example system, including the role of review and audit, test and evaluation, and configuration management. Students identify the trade-off analyses (trade studies) that might be appropriate at the system level for the system in question, and finally are required to discuss the retirement aspects for the system that would need to be taken into account in early design activities.
