   schema:reviewBody ""If engineering is the art and science of technical problem solving, systems architecting happens when you do not yet know what the problem is. The third edition of a highly respected bestseller, The Art of Systems Architecting provides in-depth coverage of the least understood part of systems design: moving from a vague concept and limited resources to a satisfactory and feasible system concept and an executable program. The book delineates a practical, heuristic approach to the "art" of systems architecting, giving you methods for embracing, and then taming, the growing complexity of modern systems." "Extensively rewritten to reflect the latest developments, the text describes how to create a system from scratch, presenting invention/design rules together with clear explanations of how to use them. The author supplies practical guidelines for avoiding common systematic failures while implementing new mandates. He uses a heuristics-based approach that provides an organized attack on ill-structured engineering problems. Examining architecture as more than a set of diagrams and documents, but as a set of decisions that either drives a system to success or dooms it to failure, the book provides methods for integrating business strategy with technical architectural decision making."--Jacket." ;
