Abstract: Anyone concerned with establishing world class systems engineering for the 21st Century needs to understand the basic concepts of systems engineering and to use these concepts in their practice of systems engineering. Too often, individuals involved in systems engineering focus on selected tasks and forget the basic concepts and purpose of systems engineering. A set of rules-of-thumb for systems engineering practice are explored as a point of departure for the papers to follow.
