Abstract:
The Tricotyledon Theory of System Design is applied to large scale complex systems. This implies a large staff and budget to accomplish the system design. Elements of the theory can be applied to smaller system with severe constraints on the Technology Requirement. These include requirement definition, concept exploration, functional analysis, and physical synthesis. In addition, system terminology will be modified where necessary to more easily convey the meaning of the theory to the novice systems engineer. An implementation using hypertext techniques and object oriented programming was done to guide an engineer through the development of the systems engineering plans. The ability to create and modify performance, resource and tradeoff indexes and figures of merit is provided to allow full comparison of differing system designs.
