Abstract

This study investigated the application of systems engineering to project management. There is an increasing complexity to modern projects, and lifecycle-focused project management displays the inability to manage the risks associated with increased project complexity. A more adequate approach to these issues is presented in the systems engineering processes. It was proposed that the application of systems engineering concepts will allow improve the management of complex projects and the mitigation of risks. Additionally, qualitative research conducted via the collection and analysis of credible information yielded data that supported this proposition. Since systems engineering processes are adaptable, they are suited to manage complex problems. It was concluded that applying systems engineering to project management was beneficial, and the integration of methodologies was valuable to the successful completion of large scale, complex projects.
