Systems engineering

Designing a complex interconnection of many elements (to constitute a system) to maximize an agreed-upon measure of system performance. It includes two parts: modelling, in which each element of the system and the criterion for measuring performance are described; and optimization in which adjustable elements are set at values that give the best possible performance. It employs the methods of cybernetics, information theory, network analysis, flow and block diagrams, etc.
