Bonnema, G.M. (2012) Thinking Tracks for Integrated Systems Design. In: 1st Joint Symposium on System-Integrated Intelligence: New Challenges for Product and Production Engineering, 27-06-2012 - 29-06-2012, Garbsen, Germany.

Abstract:The paper investigates systems thinking and systems engineering. After a short literature review, the paper presents, as a means for systems thinking, twelve thinking tracks. The tracks can be used as creativity starter, checklist, and as means to investigate effects of design decisions taken early in the process. Tracks include thinking about time, risk and safety, and different types of life-cycles. The thinking tracks are based on literature, teaching experience and practice as a system designer. By using the tracks a more complete picture of the system under design, the issue to be solved, the context, stakeholders and the rest of the world is created.
