Total System Engineering
SYNEXXUS has pioneered its own Total System Engineering methodology, a uniquely quantitative-based approach that provides valuation and complete design of complex engineering systems. Our innovative methodology integrates strategic investment decision analysis with systems optimization (maximizing) in order to create a “best case” engineering design and program. This Total System Engineering approach allows program managers and other decision makers to focus their efforts on maximizing operational value while streamlining the system acquisition.
SYNEXXUS’ Total System Engineering is a measurable engineering systems valuation toolset that incorporates multinomial, non-recombining decision tree analysis and economic valuation with physics-based models, multi-objective optimization, real options and stakeholder analysis. Through the use of these methods, program sponsors, program managers and critical decision makers can make the necessary performance trades for effective acquisitions and/or successful deployment of a specific capability. SYNEXXUS’ Total System Engineering also can be used to identify options for systems selection and determining requirements for emerging operational or commercial demands.
Specifically, Total System Engineering mitigates risks in the planning and design of systems or infrastructure by offering “options-based design strategies” that allow for the planners (and plans) to be more adaptive in how they respond to changing environmental factors as a hedge against uncertainty. SYNEXXUS’ Total System Engineering methodology designs flexibility into the planning process and provides a transparent mechanism for enabling the program manager and other decision makers to make staged, informed and aligned decisions throughout the entire system design process. In addition, our approach provides a comprehensive procurement strategy, speeds up the overall design-build process and offers improved predictability of procurement/construction cost and final performance.
SYNEXXUS’ unique Total Systems Engineering approach to systems engineering is an outgrowth of over five years of pioneering academic, engineering and operational fieldwork in several DoD programs – including innovative engineering methodology developed jointly by SYNEXXUS and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
SYNEXXUS’ Total System Engineering has been applied in support of multiple programs for the US Army, US Navy, SOCOM, OSD, FBI, FAA and many other government organizations and commercial customers.
