Combining technical, market and customer value

A system architecture, according to Wikipedia, is the conceptual model that defines structure, behaviour and other aspects (or ‘views’) of a system. Such a model can be used to guide the design of a system and determine its success.

In the precision engineering and mechatronics domain, where systems can be very complex, system architecting, i.e., the art of defining and maintaining a system architecture, is a crucial discipline. Ger Schoeber, manager Innovation & Technology at Hotraco and course leader of the famous “System architecting” training course, presents some reflections on this very special (precision) talent.
