Introduction to the Second Edition of Systems Engineering: The 2010 edition Introduction "Systems Engineering Introduction (2nd Edition)" systematically introduces the relevant theories and methods of systems engineering, focusing on the emergence and development of systems engineering, general theory of systems, and systems Engineering methodology, system modeling, system structure modeling methods, system simulation, system dynamics, system evaluation, and system decision-making, etc., some of which are first published in similar books. In order to facilitate readers to grasp the relevant theories and methods in the book, each chapter of "Introduction to Systems Engineering (2nd Edition)" gives a certain amount of thinking questions and exercises and important references. "Introduction to Systems Engineering (2nd Edition)" can be used by undergraduates and graduate students majoring in economics and management in colleges and universities, and can also be used as a teaching reference book for related majors.
