Mechanical Properties of Bamboo

During this publication i've got accrued many stories at the houses of bamboo. due to the fact that i began bamboo study in 1974, i've got accrued many guides on bamboo. even though, in contacts with different researchers I turned conscious of the truth that numerous of those guides have been unknown to them. as a result their actions in study or in bamboo tasks needed to commence at a reduce point than in the event that they had identified a few of these guides.

Prof. Olivier De Weck finds substantial differences between the business and public sectors, in terms of their willingness to adopt systems engineering work patterns: “Systems engineering in the public sector, in government or defense projects (which usually Managing and Engineering Complex Technological Systems, First Edition. Avigdor Zonnenshain and Shuki Stauber. © 2015 John Wiley & Sons, Inc. Published 2015 by John Wiley & Sons, Inc. 26 SYSTEMS ENGINEERING IN VARIOUS ORGANIZATIONS are also government projects – the authors), is integrated into the system, an inseparable part of the requirements specification.

Olivier De Weck gives an example from the field of transportation: “Drivers texting behind the wheel is currently the most common cause of traffic accidents in the United States. ” Sillitto says: “The more complex systems become, the more the connections between them multiply, the higher the chances that something will go wrong, be it on purpose or due to plain stupidity. ” The multileveled nature and complexity of systems raise the importance of risk management in all systems, whether they pertain to engineering or not.

Prof. Joe Kasser finds that the two areas, management and systems engineering, are intertwined: “There is an overlap between systems engineering and management, because systems engineering designs the processes that managers later supervise. There are a lot of professionals who use systems engineering tools. Systems engineering is a problem-solving mechanism that includes many managerial elements, because it involves human components and processes. ” The next chapter is dedicated to this issue precisely.
