High-Performance Aircraft are very complex internally … propulsion, avionics, structures … Changing requirements can have ripple effects because everything is tightly coupled The totality of system interactions cannot be fully predicted ahead of time The “whole” system is much more than the air vehicle: logistics, training, incl. simulators etc. . People matter a lot: contracts, culture, incentives ….
