Project Management of Complex and Embedded Systems: Ensuring Product Integrity and Program Quality is focused on the project management of embedded products from concept to production. This book covers proven project management methods and elements of IEEE embedded software development techniques. Its goal is to explain how to deliver a reliable complex system to market successfully.
Providing various tools, this book provides an extensive overview of specific project stages such as concept, process development, product development, validation of the product, and release to production. Moreover, this book explores the post-project stages including analysis, corrective actions, failure reporting, and product support. Based heavily on information from Department of Defense sources, General Motors, Ford, Chrysler, the Automotive Industry Action Group, Project Management of Complex and Embedded Systems presents a standardized approach to designing and developing new products. Finally, this book helps project managers recognize challenges before they become problems, and resolve them before damaging the entire project.
