Legacy Systems Engineering Training
Legacy Systems Engineering Training Course – Hands-on
Legacy Systems Engineering Training provides a systemic overview of how to execute Brownfield development projects, which improve or replace legacy systems. Modern development programs are increasingly characterized by Brownfield development efforts in both the military and commercial domains.
Most SE training treats systems as “clean-sheet,” (or Greenfield) developments. This class explores how to tailor the SE process for legacy system Brownfield development efforts. Participants will learn the necessary adjustments to the fundamental principles of Systems Engineering necessary when dealing with the unique aspects of Brownfield development efforts. Practical information and tools are provided that will help the participants deal with issues that inevitably occur in the real word. Extensive in-class exercises are used to stimulate application of the course material. Each student will receive a complete set of lecture notes and an annotated bibliography.
Legacy Systems Engineering Training Course – Customize it
- We can adapt this training course to your group’s background and work requirements at little to no added cost.
- If you are familiar with some aspects of this training course, we can omit or shorten their discussion.
- We can adjust the emphasis placed on the various topics or build the training around the mix of technologies of interest to you (including technologies other than those included in this outline).
- If your background is nontechnical, we can exclude the more technical topics, include the topics that may be of special interest to you (e.g., as a manager or policy-maker), and present the training course in manner understandable to lay audiences.
