To illustrate the principles described in the Systems Engineering Body of Knowledge (SEBoK) Parts 1-6, Part 7 is a collection of systems engineering (SE) implementation examples. These examples describe the application of SE practices, principles, and concepts in real settings. The intent is to provide typical instances of the application of SE so readers can learn from these experiences. This can improve the practice of SE by illustrating to students, educators, and practitioners the benefits of effective practice, as well as the risks and liabilities of poor practice. A matrix of implementation examples is used to map the implementation examples to topics in the SEBoK, primarily Part 3. To provide a broader set of domains, both formal case studies and shorter vignettes are used. For the case studies, an introduction and analysis of the case is given with references to the full external case study. For the vignettes, the implementation example is described directly. In the SE literature, a wide variety of examples and formats are considered "case studies." Here, the distinction between a case study and a vignette is that a vignette is a short wiki article written for the SEBoK and a case study exists externally in the SE literature. An initial set of examples is included with the anticipation that more will be added over time to highlight the different aspects and applications of SE. In addition, new examples can be added to demonstrate the evolving state of practice, such as the application of model-based SE and the engineering of complex, adaptive systems. Knowledge Areas in Part 7
Each part of the SEBoK is divided into knowledge areas (KAs), which are groupings of information with a related theme. Part 7 is organized into the following KAs:
• Matrix of Implementation Examples
• Case Studies
Matrix of Implementation Examples
The following matrix maps the SEBoK Systems Engineering Implementation Examples to topics in the...
