Validating Systems Architectures from the Bottom Up

Products are becoming more feature-rich and more complex. Many organizations increasingly rely on systems engineering. In this post, I’ll dive into some common issues with developing systems architectures. I will focus on how to increase collaboration between detailed design and systems engineering teams through a validation step right before detailed design starts.
