Systems engineering (SE), as a discipline, intersects with other disciplines across the practice of engineering and across the enterprise. 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
