The diversity of IoT solutions is enormous, from new products that exploit the novelty of connectivity to systems that are critical to the functioning of infrastructure such as transportation or energy systems. Similarly, the criticality of connectivity can vary enormously; connectivity can be anything from a nice feature to an essential, even lifesaving capability. Overall, as the IoT plays an increasing role in the world, reliability and security become more important. Although there is no one-size-fits-all development solution for the full range of IoT systems, robust engineering practices are vital in practically every case. This is where systems engineering can play an important role.
Systems engineering is a discipline that emphasizes coordinating and managing the complexity and dependencies of systems, subsystems and components to ensure that the desired functionality is provided and the system is dependable. Long a mainstay of the aerospace industry, systems engineering and systems thinking can be adapted to offer major benefits for the complex and fast-moving world of IoT solutions.
