    Systems Engineering and Integration

    Systems Engineering and Integration (SE&I) is a disciplined approach for aggregating multiple subsystems into a complete whole that delivers the capabilities, products, and services the customer requires to complete their mission. It is a multi-phase process involving requirements definition, implementation, integration, test, verification, and operations. Satisfaction of stakeholder functional, physical and operational performance requirements is paramount, but cost and schedule constraints must also be strictly observed. SE&I includes both engineering and technical management activities, and brings together component subsystems into one system, ensuring they function together as intended, in the environment in which they were intended to operate.
