Paper Abstract

Engineers can no longer confine their systems thinking to the relationships between complex technical parts. They must broaden their understanding to include people as critical elements in any integrated system. This understanding leads to unfamiliar questions, unfamiliar partnerships, and unfamiliar challenges. Operating from the broader perspective pushes engineers to expand their task and redefine their role. Including people in the definition, description, and design of new systems is essential for success in our future world.
