The engineer should decide complex system plan, design condition of various kinds of elements composing the system, etc. In this subject, system synthesis is first outlined as an area in system engineering, which treats whole project of systems, and, secondly, the basic synthesis of production process is studied as an example of typical system synthesis.
After studying this subject, the students should be able to synthesize the designs of complex system, such as, production process.
System, System synthesis, System engineering, Problem-solving, Production process
