Systems Engineering in Socio-Technical Systems” @ INCOSE (9/13/2018)

{p. 22 — scroll down to bottom right}

The tension / fracture between product design and systems engineering imposes a significant load on the overall product / service development system and results in a significant loss of value from a financial analysis perspective. This fracture is a systems issue and systems engineering could address it in an objective, effective, and systematic way. Systems engineering, as a discipline and a community, has failed to address this issue. We call upon the discipline and the community to re-evaluate its posture toward optimizing the super-system (eco-system) in which it operates.
