Systems Engineering

FDOT's Systems Engineering Management Plan (SEMP) enables an ITS engineer to manage a project using systems engineering principles and methods to maximize the quality of the system being implemented, while minimizing the budget and schedule required for its completion. Following is a list of the SEMP documents:
