Thanks for the input, Naperlou, and I think this will be a really worthwhile show. I'm curious: What's your sense on why this type of discipline hasn't caught on with commercial products and less complex systems? What is your view on the challenges? Any one else care to wade in?

Beth, I am looking forward to the broadcast.  Systems engineeing is much more than tracking the engineering products through the process.  That is useful, and a good development.  There have been tools in the past that were targeted to the systems engineer, and for systems with a large software component they have been around for some time.  Systems engineering is about defining the components of a system and their interfaces.  Then, once that is done, one must model the proposed system to determine if it makes sense.  This may have to be done iteratively until some critical factor has been optimized.  Most organizations do not do this.  Systems engineering is generally only done for large, complex systems, typically.  I am talking about military and space types of programs.  If this type of discipline can be brought to more commercial products, I think we will all benefit.
