5 August 2014 Systems engineering implementation in the conceptual design phase of 4MOST
Author Affiliations +
The 4MOST Facility is a very high-multiplex, wide-field, fibre-fed spectrograph system for the VISTA telescope. Its aim is to create a world-class spectroscopic survey facility that is unique in its combination of wide-field multiplex, spectral resolution and coverage, and sensitivity. In such a complex instrumentation project, in which design and development activities are geographically distributed, a formal system engineering approach is essential for the success of the project. We present an overview of the systems engineering principles, and associated tools, implemented during the conceptual design phase, as well as the systems engineering activities planned for the preliminary design phase.
