Systems Engineering

The increasing complexity of products and processes puts even greater pressure on high tech companies. Consistent application of Systems Engineering is key to getting results. It is a structured way of working to develop complex systems and underpins the success of a high tech ecosystem of collaborating partners.

Value for the Dutch high tech industry

The ability to work systematically and to create an overview with input from different, but mutually supportive, disciplines are the key characteristics of this technology, and essential for developing increasingly complex systems and machines. Effective management of multidisciplinarity, a requirement in the high tech industry sector, is an area for which Systems Engineering is ideally suited. The products themselves are integrated hardware/software systems that add intelligence, decision-making capability, artificial intelligence and robustness to high tech products and services.

What we do as Holland High Tech
