The large-scale systems engineering (LSSE) frameworks deal with complexities of large-scale systems and providing disaster relief can be considered as a large-scale system. Applying the large-scale system engineering approach, this article provides a framework in which such disaster relief could be carried out. Using the 2004 Asian Tsunami as an example, specific instances from the assistance rendered by Singapore and by other entities are included that illustrate aspects of the deployment of a disaster relief framework.
