Abstract

A systems engineering approach to engineering design and product development is presented. There are three elements, performed in an iterative manner. The first element is to expand the traditional scope of analysis to include issues such as manufacturing cost, operations, environmental impact, the business model, etc. The second element is to formulate a design optimization problem, articulating an objective function, decision variables and constraints. The third element is a systems analysis of the results of the first two elements. An overview of two systems engineering research projects is presented, including new product design and development for an air pollution control device, and design for sustainability through product take-back and reuse.
