The Role of Systems Engineering in the Development of Information Systems

  title={The Role of Systems Engineering in the Development of Information Systems},
  author={Miroljub Kljajic and John V. Farr},
  journal={Int. J. Inf. Technol. Syst. Approach},
In this article, the inter-relationship between information systems (IS), systems engineering (SE), and information system development (ISD) is discussed from past, present, and future perspectives. While SE is relatively a well-established discipline based upon an interdisciplinary approach to enable the realization of successful systems, ISD has evolved to a variant of SE applied mainly for the development of IS. Given the growth in complexity and cost and schedule over-runs associated with…
