For over 80 years, systems engineering has helped America
lead in science, technology, industry, and business.

Now, systems engineering can help us address our most difficult
social, economic, envronmental, and political problems.


Public policy organizations

Public policy organizations can promote  political reform and tax reform by using the systems engineering (SE) process to develop public policy recommendations. Their recommendations can inform federal, state, and local leaders about the  range of possible nonpartisan solutions to societal problems. The knowledge and experience that public policy organizations gain from using SE will then make them more effective advocates for their recommended policies.

Public policy organizations can also use SE to develop policy recommendations to address global problems. Just as hyper-partisan politics is a problem within the U.S. and many other countries, hyper-nationalism is a global problem. SE can help overcome hyper-nationalism as well as hyper-partisan politics.
