(For new reader and those who request ºÃÓÑÇëÇó, please read my ¹«¸æÀ¸ first)

There is a best selling series of how-to books with the title ¡°XXX for Dummies¡±.  The idea is to simplify useful knowledge and tools to easily digestible level and instruct ordinary readers  to do seemingly difficult but useful tasks.   Recently I discovered one of these books with the title ¡°System Engineering for Dummies¡± written by the staff of IBM. An added bonus is  that the book is free to download and available from https://www14.software.ibm.com/webapp/iwm/web/signup.do?source=swg-rtl-sd-wp&S_PKG=500016937&S_CMP=Google-Search-SWG-Rational-EB-1015&csr=wwwus_rationalsystemengsrcheb&cm=k&cr=google&ct=102G55MW&S_TACT=102G55MW&ck=+systems_+engineering_for_dummies&cmp=102G5&mkwid=sTo9TWAcD-dc_21505144676_43246d30503.

The introduction carries the following description:

This IBM Limited Edition ebook, ¡°Systems Engineering For Dummies,¡± explains what  systems engineering is and how it can help you simplify the development of smart, connected products.  If you're looking for ways toexpedite time-to-market, ensure business agility, and  deliver  high- quality smart products while cutting costs, this ebook is for you.
