Systems Engineering--an interdisciplinary, multi-stage-driven approach to the design and implementation of any large-scale or complex engineered product or service--has found its way from aerospace into general manufacturing as well as the services industry. It has been found to be particularly useful in such applications as software engineering, the bio- and medical industries, and large, multi-component projects like those found in energy-generation. Following on the author's previous book System Requirements Analysis, System Verification will lay out the steps and procedures needed to implement a quality check of the system being proposed or designed...the "Verification" stage of a full systems engineering program. Systems engineering usually begins with defining a product that will satisfy a customer need and then rationally building a set of required components, personnel, and financial resources. The testing and evaluating of a proposed design solution is known as Verification, and this will guide the systems engineer and his engineering and management team in setting up the detailed protocols for a step-by-step quality control check of each stage of a proposed system design.We are women, we are men. We are refugees, single mothers, people with disabilities, and queers. We belong to social categories and they frame our actions, self-understanding, and opportunities. But what are social categories? How are they created and sustained? How does one come to belong to them? Asta approaches these questions through analytic feminist metaphysics. Her theory of social categories centers on an answer to the question: what is it for a feature of an individual to be socially meaningful? In a careful, probing investigation, she reveals how social categories are created and sustained and demonstrates their tendency to oppress through examples from current events. To this end, she offers an account of just what social construction is and how it works in a range ofexamples that problematize the categories of sex, gender, and race in particular. The main idea is that social categories are conferred upon people. Asta introduces a 'conferralist' framework in order to articulate a theory of social meaning, social construction, and most importantly, of the construction ofsex, gender, race, disability, and other social categories.
