A 2-day Engineering the Lifecycle Course
Lifecycle Management is not one size fits all. Engineering
projects differ in scope and depth making it necessary to tailor or engineer
the lifecycle to suit. Tailoring involves making informed decisions about the
lifecycle, processes, tools and reviews. This will determine, for a particular
project or programme, the necessary approach, measures of maturity and checks
to manage risk and how to capture and document this in an Engineering or
Systems Engineering Management Plan.
This course aims to
educate and train participants in how to tailor the lifecycle and determine
appropriate and relevant maturity measures with a range of practical project
examples such as build to print, internal investment and service and
capability based solutions.
This course is for people who have some
experience already of the application of lifecycle management and will be
involved in the tailoring and maturity management of a project. It is highly
desirable that they have attended the following courses prior to this one:
Engineering Fundamentals Course
It is also expected
that they are familiar with their organizations lifecycle and review processes.
Benefits to the Individual and Business
During an intensive two days of teaching and practical
‘hands on’ exercises, participants will be challenged to develop the
understanding and skills needed to create an Engineering Management Plan.
At the end of the course
an understanding of the concepts and principles of Lifecycle Tailoring and
and apply the processes and tools necessary to tailor the lifecycle of a

what “good” looks like for an Engineering or Systems Engineering Management
The learning approach is based on the
Kolb learning cycle with a significant proportion of the course set aside for
exercises to reinforce the learning. Indeed, the course employs a number of
small group exercises involving a case study to provide a practical focus for
the course which enables the delegates to practise the methodology and tools.
The course has been designed for
minimum numbers of 8 and maximum of 16 and can be delivered on site or at a
