Letter from the Editor
Hi there. Welcome to the May 2021 release of the SEBoK. Version 2.4 is the 15th release of the SEBoK. We continue to hover around that 100,000 pageviews per month. However, the more significant milestone is that the SEBoK crossed 5M pageviews since it first launched in September 2012. Thank you for your loyalty to this website.
As you know by now, I like to tell our readers what the 10 most popular content pages were in the recent past. In March 2021, the top 10 were:
- Types of Systems
- System Requirements
- Stakeholder Needs and Requirements
- Types of Models
- System Reliability, Availability, and Maintainability
- System Architecture
- Life Cycle Models
- System Life Cycle Process Models: Vee
- What is a Model?
- Logical Architecture Model Development
First off, did you notice our new logo? It is meant to represent the movement from books to digital information, as well as the many different ways to represent that data. Hope you like it.
The Editors and Authors have worked hard for this release. This update provides more new content than has been added for some time. Thank you to the new editors and the new authors that contributed to this release. Here is what you might find:
- Parts 6 and Part 8 have been reorganized to handle new knowledge areas and topics
- The following articles are new additions to the SEBoK for 2.4:
- Updated content on Systems of Systems (SoS)
- An introductory article on Artificial Intelligence
- Additional System Security videos
Ongoing OPPORTUNITY: I first mentioned this in the May 2020 release. We continue to look for ways to add some multimedia to the SEBoK. If you are an amateur videographer or hobbyist, we're looking for volunteers to produce a number of 3-5 minute videos on systems engineering specifically for the SEBoK. NO AGENDAS. NO PROMOTIONS. NO ADVERTISEMENTS. Or, you can simply record the presentation in PPT – that also works. If you are up to this challenge, please contact me at: . I look forward to your ideas.
Enjoy this latest release,
