This book is an update to the second edition of Essentials of Project and Systems Engineering Management, published in 2003. The focus on combining project management and systems engineering (two "hot" areas in business today) has made this book unique on the market. This revision contains an emphasis on new standards relative to Systems Engineering, especially as advocated by the EIA (Electronic Industries Association) and the IEEE. The text also expands upon such areas as fixed price contracts, leadership, architecting of systems, systems integration, software problems, and the integrated capability maturity model.

Harold Eisner received his B.E.E. from Columbia University, his M.Sc. in Electrical Engineering from Columbia University, and his D.Sc. from The George Washington University. Eisner is a Distinguished Research Professor at The George Washington University in Washington, DC. Previously, his professional experience included executive and research engineer positions with ORI, Inc. and the Atlantic Research Corporation. He has published two previous books on system and software engineering.Mr. Eisner is a Fellow of the IEEE, a senior member of the AIAA, a member of the Institute for Operations Research and Management Services (INFORMS), and a delegate to its American Association of Engineering Societies (AAES).
