English abstract

Systems Engineering (SE) today has grown form an exclusive technical design or process focus into a holistic or end-to-end discipline.This book ist an excellent entry for novice sytems engineers, for people who want to familiarize themselves with the step-by-step systems engineering process and associated solutions methods. The SE methodology is not only suitable for engineering problems, its real strengths only become apparent in solving more complex problems such as repositioning a product plattform in the marketplace. The case (based on a true case) describes how a group of product of a medium sized company with about 100 employees that had not enough success in the market could be improved considerably and permanently. In particular methodological aspects in regard to the complexity of the task are emphasized. A special characteristic of this case is the combined application of SE concepts and portfolio and value analysis.
