Special issue: Current research in life cycle engineering and management
- 11 Downloads
Organizing an ambient for life cycle engineering and management should provide a delivery of effective systems, i.e. systems with minimal amount of failures during work and minimal life cycle cost. To achieve that it is necessary to integrate disciplines such as: functionability, reliability, safety, maintainability, logistic support etc. into the overall design process. Thereby, the main effort should be directed toward developing methods and tools that should be able to help designers while making decisions about investing in resources necessary for manufacturing, exploitation, maintenance and retirement of systems. Therefore, the main engineering and management life cycle principle is integrating all stages of requirements specifications and design until retirement of the system.
Therm “life cycle engineering and management” originates from attempting to develop integrated point of view on different stages of the system life cycle. Life cycle engineering and management can cover:...
