SC1139: Systems Engineering and Large Telescope Observatories
Modern astronomical observatories are becoming larger and more complex with many components working together to achieve the common goal of gathering useful information for astro-scientists. Successful engineering of these observatories is enabled by following a systems engineering viewpoint of looking at the whole. This viewpoint requires a multidisciplinary breadth and the ability to find a balance among 1) the system user's needs and desires, 2) the manager's funding and schedule constraints, and 3) the capabilities and ambitions of the engineering specialists who develop and build the system. The system engineer is sometimes described as the person on the program who should know the partial derivative of every parameter of the system with respect to every other parameter. This course introduces the concepts and models that are used to evolve a system from an abstract vision to the final validated and verified operational system. Examples are given that provide insight into the variety of engineering disciplines and typical subsystems found in observatories for optical astronomy observatories (X-ray through IR).
SC1165: Probability for Systems Engineers
This course explains basic principles for the use of probability analysis as applied to systems engineering and applies them to the central problem of performance budgeting. A primary goal of the course is explaining the logic, construction and application of performance and error budgeting. This probabilistic methodology of performance budgeting should be a tool in every engineer’s tool kit as it is fundamental to understanding the probability of a successful system. Examples are taken from various problems in systems engineering of astronomical and laser systems. This course will be of benefit to anyone who wants to answer the question, “what are the chances of success of my project?” and “how can I maximize the probability of success?”
SC1229: Introduction to Performance Budgeting
A performance budget is fundamental to understanding the likely outcome of a design or measurement process. The budget also gives insight into the distribution of likely performance and how it is affected by design. Because of the clear link between performance and design, the performance or error budget is the central tool in systems engineering, design and measurement. The ability to construct such a budget should be in every scientist’s and engineer’s tool kit regardless if the system is a simple measurement, component or something vastly more complex. This course explains the basic principles of the construction of a rigorous performance budget and understanding the distribution of outcomes. The problem of allocation of performance among components or subsystems is also introduced and explained. Examples of performance budgets and allocations are taken from various problems in the systems engineering of astronomical and laser systems are used to illustrate application of these techniques. This course will be of benefit, scientists, engineers and managers who want to answer the questions, “what are the chances of success of my project?” and “how can I maximize the probability of success?”
