System Integration presents the systems approach to complex problem solving and provides a powerful base for both product and process integration. This unique reference describes 27 kinds of integration work, primarily obtained through human communications. Simple computer applications-already in place in most companies-have the resources to encourage the availability and sharing of current team knowledge, which results in an intense, cooperative experience leading rapidly to sound design solutions.
