Systems Engineering Glossary
Macro-level behaviors that cannot be predicted from studying the micro-level behaviors in isolation.
The final production product that when assembled or completed is ready for deployment
|Engineering Change Proposal (ECP)|
|Engineering Change Request (ECR)|
|Engineering Design Heuristics||
Statements, often derived from experience, about what makes a design better.
|Engineering Gate Review|
|Engineering Review Board (ERB)|
|Enhanced Functional Flow Block Diagram||
A block diagram that represents control flows and data flows as well as system functions and flow.
A holistic view and a way for enabling design, development, and communication and understanding of the enterprise. It helps manage the complexity of the enterprise by aligning business strategies and implementations, and facilitating rapid change.
|Enterprise Decision Model (EDM)|
|Enterprise Service Bus (ESB)|
The minimum accomplishments necessary to enter into the next life cycle phase or level of technical maturity.
|Event Stream Processing (ESP)||
The event detection triggers that activate Service-Based Architecture (SBA) services. This is helpful when an anomaly or an opportunity occurs.
A product life cycle that relies on existing technology and enhances system capabilities as new technologies become available.
The inability of an entity to perform as intended.
A group of systems that provide similar capabilities that use different approaches to achieve the same goal. A family of systems does not acquire qualitatively new properties as a result of any interactions among the constituent systems.
Hardware combined with read-only software that is not easily modified.
