There is no question that the building of the Egyptian pyramids, the English Stonehenge, the Easter Island statues, the Mayan pyramids at Chichen Itza, Mexico, and other marvelous ancient constructions were amazing feats of engineering. Did those projects follow what we now would consider to be a systems engineering approach? The builders of these monuments clearly must have adopted some organizational structure and management processes in order to accomplish what they did. Archeologists have discovered highly sophisticated mathematical, architectural, and construction methods in documents used by engineers of these ancient monuments.

The DoD SEF [11] lists the following system requirements: • Customer requirements are the expectations of systems in terms of mission objectives, environment, constraints, and measures of effectiveness and suitability. • Functional requirements are the necessary tasks, actions, or activities that must be completed. • Performance requirements are the extent to which mission or function must be executed with respect to quantity, quality, coverage, timeliness, and readiness. , hardware, software) and “how to execute” requirements for processes.

In modern times, the specific terminology for the discipline of systems engineering has only been in common use for a relatively short 70 years or so, although various documents attribute the creation of the term to different parties and at different times. Christensen and Thayer [10] quote Alberts [14], who asserted that the term was originated by a certain H. C. Hitch at Penn State University in 1956 [15]. The INCOSE website claims that the term systems engineering was coined by researchers at Bell Telephone Laboratories in the 1940s [16].
