Systems Engineering
Project Title: 
Synthesis of Form Redux
Description: 

System architecture is the fundamental structure of a system: its elements, the roles they play, and how they relate to each other and to their environment. This project is to compare and contrast quantitative methods to discover the natural partitions of a system and their interfaces, achieving balance of the complexity of the partitions and the interfaces between them, while considering implications of the degree of coupling and on organizations, disciplines, integration, testability, and supportability.
