Systems engineering (SE), as a discipline, intersects with other disciplines across the practice of engineering and across the enterprise. Part 6 of the SEBoK presents knowledge that would be useful to systems engineers as they interact with these other fields and experts in those fields. The knowledge areas (KAs) contained in this part, and the topics under them, are not meant to comprise additional bodies of knowledge but, rather, to give an overview with emphasis on what a systems engineer needs to know, accompanied by pointers to that knowledge.
Knowledge Areas in Part 6
Each part of the SEBoK is divided into knowledge areas (KAs), which are groupings of information with a related theme. Part 6 contains the following KAs:
- Systems Engineering and Software Engineering
- Systems Engineering and Project Management
- Systems Engineering and Industrial Engineering
- Systems Engineering and Procurement/Acquisition
- Systems Engineering and Specialty Engineering
