Creative Systems Engineering Some major themes
Creative Systems Engineering Some Major Themes Systems Engineering is the Answer – Humans went to the moon Markets can not solve all problems – Nothing happened since the first energy crisis 30 years ago Sustainable Development is not new – How did we get to 6 billion people Past may offer a road map – Science the Endless Frontier Connections – memex, Internet, and libraries
Creative Systems Engineering Some Major Themes Transparency – Problems are really complex the more minds the better Tradeoff Methodology – Based on years of civilization Architecture Alternatives – Without alternatives solution not understood Innovation and Creativity – It is not about patterns and process Freedom – e.g. publishing is in trouble along with publishing industry Reasonableness – Common sense needs to surface for the good of all
Creative Systems Engineering Systems Engineering Heart? Architecture and Tradeoffs
Creative Systems Engineering Where is the Heart? Stake Holders Requirements Trade off Studies Architecture alternatives Architecture Select Design, Implement, Verify, Validate Maintain, Upgrade, Transition Decommission, Dispose Key Issues Key Reqs Modeling Simulation Config Mgmt

Creative Systems Engineering Solution Scenarios Sad Story Criminal Miracle Stuck t e No ExcuseArrogant
Creative Systems Engineering Value Approaches Lowest Cost Highest Profit ROI - Greatest Return on Investment TCO - Total Cost of Ownership IRR - Internal Rate of Return EVA - Economic Value Added ROV - Real Option Value ROA - Return on Assets ROIE - Return on Infrastructure Employed
Creative Systems Engineering Value Approaches Value is not only financial but non financial Some value a day at the beach more than a day at the mountains => Measure of Effectiveness - MOE <= => MOE = sum of tradeoff criteria / total cost <=
Creative Systems Engineering Total Cost Life Cycle Costs - LCC LCC = R+D+P+O+M+E+S+T R = Research D = Development P = Production O = Operation M = Maintenance E = Waste S = Shut Down and Decommissioning T = Disposal
Creative Systems Engineering Tradeoff Matrix Arch 2 is 14% more effective than Arch 1 Arch N is 7% more effective than Arch 1 Weighted Arch 2 & Arch N are 9% more effective than Arch 1
Creative Systems Engineering Sensitivity Analysis Include current approach in tradeoff Include pie-in-the-sky approach in tradeoff Change and zero out weights Change and zero out ratings Tradeoff Matrix allows you to focus on architecture deficiencies and fix or optimize them… What if arch N elements can be moved into arch 2 for criteria 2?
Creative Systems Engineering Tradeoff Matrix Fixing Arch 2 by learning from Arch N for Criteria 2 is key Arch 2 is now 28% more effective than Arch 1
Creative Systems Engineering Tradeoff Cells Formal Methods based on – Math, Logic, Set Theory, Hard Sciences Semi Formal Methods based on – Empirical Data, Soft Sciences Informal Methods – Everything Else including Common Sense => Based on 5000 Years of Civilization <=
Creative Systems Engineering Ideal Architecture Final Architecture is a fully optimized multidimensional transfer function not unlike creating a filter using inductors, capacitors, resisters, and op amps except the equation is summarized in a matrix and captured in study documents...
Creative Systems Engineering Ok So What Do I Do From Beginning to the End... The Process
Creative Systems Engineering The Process There is an old saying, keep it simple stupid What is buried in this is genius The sheer act of genius takes the complex and makes it simple I did not invent this This was practiced in the last century at remarkable places
Creative Systems Engineering Beginning to End Identify system boundary and why it is the boundary – Context diagram Identify key requirements and why you selected them – Top 10 Identify key issues and why you selected them – Top 10 Identify alternatives and why you selected them – 7 plus or minus 2
Creative Systems Engineering Beginning to End Draw a picture of each alternative – 1 page Succinctly state the essence of each alternative – 1 page and a list of 5-9 bullets Do a tradeoff of each alternative – Including support for 100 years, etc Apply science and engineering to the tradeoffs – Don't cook the books Identify how you will build each approach – Process, methods, tools, etc
Creative Systems Engineering Beginning to End Build a proof of concept prototype – From paper to computer simulations to physical models Mature the prototype at a small operational setting – Try it before you make a mistake Roll out to infrastructure – Slowly and learn There is beauty in diversity – Nothing wrong with multiple approaches and companies Do this like your life depends on it
Creative Systems Engineering Minor Problem No one seems to be able to this any more...
Creative Systems Engineering Sustainable Development Project The Proposal Hold on to your Seats
Creative Systems Engineering Sustainable Development Brundtland Commission defined sustainable development as development that: "meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs."
Creative Systems Engineering The Proposal is Simple It follows the model of Dr. Vennevar Bushs' seminal work presented to Franklin Roosevelt in the last century. That work is so important that it is included as an Appendix to this book, "Science the Endless Frontier, A Report to the President by Vannevar Bush, Director of the Office of Scientific Research and Development, July 1945".
Creative Systems Engineering The Program Charter Identify institutions that can take the lead in Sustainable Development using Creative System Engineering. If none exist then propose structure of such an institution or institutions and how it or they can interact with all other institutions working in this area. Charter also includes where and how Creative System Engineering should be rolled out to existing institutions.
Creative Systems Engineering Key Requirements Allow earth to sustain 100 billion people in 100 years Do not compromise current levels of freedom & liberty Uplift humanity so all can live to their fullest potential Increase level of bio diversity Continue to increase highest standard of industrial living Make highest industrial standards of living available to anyone desiring such a life style Most view these requirements as diametrically opposing, that is the challenge
Creative Systems Engineering Key Issues and Observations This is a politically charged area and it should NOT be so Humans always did Sustainable Development from step farming to safe water & sewage Time is of the urgency, may not be enough time for traditional science Ph.D. thesis The markets alone will not solve the problems
Creative Systems Engineering Key Issues and Observations In many ways markets are cause of problem Regulation and incentives are not the answer, look to history for guidance There are no impartial institutions that can address the sustainable development problem System engineering using science & engineering may help avert disaster in this century
Creative Systems Engineering Problem Approach Prepare major policy paper ala Vannevar Bush letter to President Roosevelt Start a literature search of all aspects of sustainable development Start a market survey of all sustainable development projects Establish a library of the literature search and market survey using the web
Creative Systems Engineering Problem Approach Identify institutions that might be able to take the lead in sustainable development Identify the level of impartiality of institutions engaged in sustainable development activities Propose a new institution that can take the impartial lead in sustainable development Tradeoff new proposed vs. current institutions for sustainable development lead charter Establish system engineering centers to perform independent no self interest trade studies

Creative Systems Engineering System Engineering Thoughts Does it naturally emerge when challenges are great? Did humans invent it or just observe its emergence? So what is systems engineering? How is it different from product development in an open free market with many competitors? How is it different from product development in a closed market in monopoly or oligopoly? How do utilities fit in? How do non profits fit in?
