What is Systems Engineering?

"Systems Engineering is an interdisciplinary approach and means to enable the realisation of successful systems. It focuses on defining customer needs and required functionality early in the development cycle, documenting requirements, then proceeding with design synthesis and system validation while considering the complete problem: Operations, Performance, Testing, Manufacturing, Cost & Schedule, Training & Support, Disposal." — Definition of the International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE)

What Systems Engineering Means to Synoptix...

We employ a systems based engineering approach to all projects with specific focus on accurate predictions of cost, time and resources, in order to provide realistic, measurable and evidenced project planning activities; this is a crucial step in the a project life-cycle and will help guarantee a successful outcome for all parties involved. By following the 'V-Cycle' method we can ensure that the engineering process flows optimally without missing crucial activities or procedures. This will guarantee that the end product is manufactured, simulated or generated in-line with company and customer requirements with the correct level of: safety, reliability, longevity, Integrated Life-cycle Support (ILS), functionality and performance; while abiding to all relevant certifications and standardisations.
