Applied Systems Engineering Course

Applied Systems Engineering (A 4-Day Practical Workshop)

Planned and Controlled Methods are Essential to Successful Systems.

Applied Systems Engineering

With the advent of technology, life has become too complicated for us. Each day is always a challenge for any system from environment, military, aircraft and to electronic control. In order to successfully achieve the desired harmony in operating systems this 4-day practical workshop is created which include the innovative principles and methodology of applied systems engineering.

Who are qualified to attend Applied Systems Engineering?

  • Key leaders and members of a complex system development group
  • Individuals who are concern about the success of the technical working group
  • Individuals who have keen interest in fitting the applied system to the environment
  • Individuals who are looking for viable methods to be applied for their team

Each student will experience on-the spot application of skills by creating and fabricating interoperating robots as integral part in problem solving. Participants will be taught on the principles and methods on how to define the systems that constantly changes and becoming more complicated. As this develops, each participant will learn how to react on the challenges and on how to perform in different interoperability systems to maintain the normal operations of its missions and avoiding casualty from single fault. Interoperability is the name of the game that should replace the antiquated acquisition method and welcoming new methods to achieve success in the systems engineering.

Systems engineering comprise a large scoop of concepts, methods, and discipline that should be given importance because it can help a lot in managing the complexity brought about by the ever-changing world. Teams can apply the best practices being taught in this course by following the best engineering systems concepts, avoiding errors that will cost damage to life and property. Each team can share their knowledge in creating, defining, developing and interacting with the complex systems. The participants composed of systems engineers, team leaders of technical working group, project and program managers can become more effective in their application of systems engineering in their work. Lessons covered include:

How do We Work With Complexity?

– Basic definitions and concepts. Problem-solving approaches; system thinking; systems engineering overview; what systems engineering is NOT.

  • Objectives, requirements, processes
  • Reductionist and system-level approaches
  • Complexity theory, emergent properties, complex behavior
  • Conceptual development and chunking
  • System thinking principles
  • Application in the system life cycle

Systems Engineering Model

– An underlying process model that ties together all the concepts and methods. Overview of the systems engineering model; technical aspects of systems engineering; management aspects of systems engineering.

  • Model overview
  • Incremental, concurrent processes
  • Process loops for iteration
  • Technical and management aspects of systems engineering

A System Challenge Application – Practical application of the systems engineering model against an interesting and entertaining system development. Small groups build actual interoperating robots to solve a larger problem. Small group development of system requirements and design, with presentations for mutual learning.

Where Do Requirements Come From?

– Requirements as the primary method of measurement and control for systems development. How to translate an undefined need into requirements; how to measure a system; how to create, analyze, manage requirements; writing a specification.

  • Determining the mission from an operational view
  • Quantifying the mission
  • Analyzing missions and environments
  • Creating requirements
  • Definition of requirements types
  • Requirements analysis methods

Applied Systems Engineering

Where Does a Solution Come From?

– Designing a system using the best methods known today. System architecting processes; alternate sources for solutions; how to allocate requirements to the system components; how to develop, analyze, and test alternatives; how to trade off results and make decisions. Getting from the system design to the system.

  • Defining alternative concepts
  • Architecting with patterns
  • Analyzing and evaluating alternatives
  • Establishing an allocated baseline
  • Implementing the baseline system
  • Production challenges for unique systems
  • System integration processes
  • Transitioning the system into use
  • System operations
  • Post-mission use and disposal

Ensuring System Quality

– Building in quality during the development, and then checking it frequently. The relationship between systems engineering and systems testing.

  • Technical analysis as a system tool
  • Verification at multiple levels: architecture, design, product
  • Validation at multiple levels; requirements, operations design, product

Systems Engineering Management

– How to successfully manage the technical aspects of the system development; virtual, collaborative teams; design reviews; technical performance measurement; technical baselines and configuration management.

  • Technical teamwork and leadership
  • Planning technical processes
  • Assessing and controlling the technical processes, with corrective actions
  • Technical performance measures
  • Risk management methods
  • Small case studies on process management

Summary

- Review of the important points of the workshop. Interactive discussion of participant experiences that add to the material.
