Systems Engineering is applying Systems Thinking to the creation of systems. When done correctly, it gives considerable strategic advantage to an organisation. It reduces introduction time, improves system performance and reduces through-life costs.
However, applying Systems Engineering correctly requires not only skills and knowledge but also an understanding of the systems’ principles. This course shows participates how to do Systems Engineering as well as showing them what it is. Put simply; its purpose is to help people create better systems.
Who Should Attend?
The 5-day Systems Engineering Fundamentals course is specifically aimed at those people who would like to practice Systems Engineering.
Benefits To The Individual And Business
During an intensive five days of teaching and practical ‘hands on’ exercises, participants will be challenged to develop the skills and mindset that can be applied to any system design irrespective of type, scale or context.
At the end of the course participants will:
- have an understanding of the principles of systems thinking and how it applies to the creation of a new system through the appropriate blend of people, process and tools
- understand the critical role of requirements in engineering
- be able to identify system stakeholders and gather their requirements
- be able to analyse stakeholder requirements and translate these into measurable technical system requirements
- be able to specify (document) requirements
- be able to generate and down-select alternative system design concepts and architectures
- be introduced to the principles of robust system design
- understand the systems approach to verification and validation (V&V)
- be able to document verification and validation requirements
- be able to consider the organizational impact of adopting a systems approach to engineering.
