Systems Engineering Principles – Processes of International Standard for Systems Engineering
Systems Engineering Principles – Processes of International Standard for Systems Engineering Course – Hands-on
Systems Engineering Principles – Processes of International Standard for Systems Engineering provides students the opportunity to deepen their understanding of the fundamentals of Systems Engineering. Specifically this course offers an in-depth study of the systems engineering processes outlined in the International Standard for Systems and Software Engineering (ISO/IEC/IEEE 15288 2015), the International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE) Handbook. This course will contextualize the various Organizational, Project and Technical processes that are necessary to realize a “System-of-Interest” including design considerations.
In the end, the student will have good understanding and appreciation on how the Systems Engineering Technical Processes operate within the envelope of the Project as dictated by Contracts as set forth by an Organization. With the aid of a comprehensive Process Flow diagram the instructor will walk the students from the Portfolio Management Process to Specialty Engineering Activities to the Disposal Process in a logical and sequential manner, while covering all 31 processes within the INCOSE SE Handbook.
The class includes team exercises so the student will be able to try out the concepts learned Great class for a company who wants their Program Managers, Quality Personal, Configuration Managers, Developers, Testers and others to get an appreciation in what the job of Systems Engineering entails.
Course Materials: A comprehensive set of notes and a copy of the comprehensive Process Flow diagram, Exercise Sheets, and the INCOSE SE Handbook will be provided to all attendees.
