Foundational Critical Principles Advancing Systems Engineering

by William Maholick SSBB; Carl J Godell PMP CHRS LSS;


Within any science or study, some aspects recur so reliably that they take on the character of a principle or natural law and their constant observance and inclusion in the application of the science helps to further develop and advance that practice. So it is with study and application of systems engineering and project management, and within that system and application we could itemize those principles and consider them the foundation of project management and systems thinking. This effort results in cumulative knowledge having the properties of a physical system capable of enabling future teams enough specific data to improve risk awareness and reaction.
