About this book

The theme of this volume on systems engineering research is disciplinary convergence: bringing together concepts, thinking, approaches, and technologies from diverse disciplines to solve complex problems. Papers presented at the Conference on Systems Engineering Research (CSER), March 23-25, 2017 at Redondo Beach, CA, are included in this volume. This collection provides researchers in academia, industry, and government forward-looking research from across the globe, written by renowned academic, industry and government researchers.

About the authors

Professor Azad M. Madni is the Technical Director of the Systems Architecting and Engineering Program at the University of Southern California Viterbi School of Engineering.  His research areas include complex system analysis and design, complexity management, socio-technical systems, modelling and simulation, model based engineering, resilient systems, and integration of humans with adaptable systems.

Professor Barry Boehm is the TRW Professor of Software Engineering and Director Emeritus, Center for Software Engineering, University of Southern California.  His research interests focus on value-based software engineering, including a method for integrating a software system's process models, product models, property models, and success models called Model-Based (System) Architecting and Software Engineering (MBASE).

Professor Roger Ghanem is in the Sony Astani Department of Civil Engineering at the University of Southern California.  He is a leading researcher in probabilistic modeling and computational stochastic mechanics, and quantitative models for the propagation of uncertainty in physical systems.  

Professor Daniel Erwin is the chair of the department of Astronautical Engineering at the University of Southern California.  He is a leading researcher in spacecraft propulsion, optics and optical instruments, kinetics of gases and plasmas.

Ms. Marilee Wheaton is a Systems Engineering Fellow at The Aerospace Corporation in California, where she previously was the Executive Director of Aerospace’s corporate university, The Aerospace Institute.
