INCOSE - A Consensus of the INCOSE Fellows on Systems Engineering

INCOSE - A Consensus of the INCOSE Fellows: "Most systems engineers accept the following basic core concepts:

1. Understand the whole problem before you try to solve it
2. Translate the problem into measurable requirements
3. Examine all feasible alternatives before selecting a solution
4. Make sure you consider the total system life cycle. The birth to death concept extends to maintenance, replacement and decommission. If these are not considered in the other tasks, major life cycle costs can be ignored.
5. Make sure to test the total system before delivering it.
6. Document everything."
