    This text book introduces systems engineering for designing systems in multidisciplinary projects. First an overview of the systems engineering process is given. Several systems thinking tracks are presented, to think about the system in a number of ways, its context, its user, its functionality, its past and its future. This to stimulate creativity of the system designer, and to force out-of-the-box thinking. Dynamic thinking, feedback thinking, specific-generic thinking project thinking, life-cylce thinking to name a few. A number of practical design tools are presented that support both the systems engineering process and the systems thinking tracks: 9-windows diagram, context diagram, system budgets, fun-key architecting, A3 architecture overview, risk management, modeling and simulation, documenting and reviewing. The message is exemplified using a case study throughout the text.
