Systems Engineering

Managing Across Disciplines

Managing the lifecycle of "systems" products is one of the biggest challenges facing product organizations. It involves unprecedented levels of collaboration to work on products with much greater complexity, often under high cost and timescale pressures. And as software-enabled products become the norm in the Internet of Things world, this is a challenge that is impacting more businesses.
