Master the formal decision-making methodology within the systems engineering process used to identify and evaluate alternatives. Trade Studies are used to balance performance, schedule, cost, and risk variables. Simple and complex trade study methodologies are presented along with examples of problems often encountered with trade studies in the field. Examples of simulations and graphical presentation techniques are presented to support the trade study process.
- Topics Include:
- Single and multi-variable trades
- Trade study objectives
- Evaluating alternatives
- Models, attributes, and weights
- Sensitivity analysis
