Systems Architecting: Methods And Examples

Systems Architecting
By Howard Eisner

This book provides a replacement approach to systems architecting not previously available. The book provides a compact innovative procedure for architecting any sort of system.

Systems Architecting: Methods and Examples describes a way of system architecting that's believed to be a considerable improvement over "methods" previously covered in other systems architecting books.

  • Incorporates analytic procedure (decision analysis)
  • Defines and evaluates alternative architectures
  • Improves upon existing architecting methods
  • Considers cost-effectiveness of alternatives
  • Provides for competitive analysis and its advantages
  • Shows alternatives on one simple and simply understood page

With the book’s relatively straightforward approach, it shows the way to architect systems during a way that both developers and clients/customers can readily understand. It uses one among the essential principles suggested by Rechtin and Maier, namely, Simplify, Simplify, Simplify.

Systems engineers also as students taking systems engineering courses will find this book of interest.

Howard Eisner spent 30 years in industry and 24 years in academia. within the former, he was a working engineer, manager, executive (at ORI, Inc. and therefore the Atlantic Research Corporation) and president of two high-tech companies (Intercon Systems and the Atlantic Research Services Company). In academia, he was a professor of engineering management and a distinguished research professor within the polytechnic institute at the Washington University (GWU). At GWU, he taught courses in systems engineering, technical enterprises, project management, modulation and noise, and knowledge theory.

He has written nine books that relate to engineering, systems, and management. He has also given lectures, tutorials, and presentations to professional societies (such as INCOSE – International Council on Systems Engineering), government agencies, and therefore the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI).

In 1994, he was given the outstanding achievement award from the GWU Engineering Alumni.

Dr. Eisner may be a life fellow of the IEEE and a fellow of INCOSE and therefore the NY Academy of Sciences. he's a member of Tau Beta Pi, Eta Kappa Nu, Sigma Xi, and Omega Rho, various honor/research societies. He received a Bachelor’s degree (BEE) from the town College of the latest York (1957), an MS degree in EE from Columbia University (1958), and a Doctor of Science (DSc) degree from the Washington University (GWU) (1966).

Since 2013. He has served as professor emeritus of engineering management and a distinguished research professor at the GWU. As such, he has continued to explore advanced topics in engineering, systems, and management.
