A 3-day Course in Lifecycle Management
Systems have a lifecycle just like us – cradle to grave.
Lifecycle Management is simply looking after that life, particularly the early
concept creation and design stages where a little thought early can be highly
beneficial later on. The prime benefit of Lifecycle Management is the control
of risk particularly on the development of long timescale, expensive complex
systems. When integrated with Systems Engineering processes and tools, it is
proven to be the most successful way to design, develop, realise, operate and
support systems, whether product, service or software based.
This 3-day course introduces the concepts and principles of
Lifecycle Management, bringing them to life through an engaging concept
creation, design, build and acceptance case study project. The course
highlights the engineering lifecycle and the roles of reviews in controlling
risk at key stages. It teaches people both sides of the fence, reviewer and
reviewee, and gives every participant an opportunity to conduct their first review.
The engineering lifecycle, review process, systems engineering
processes and taxonomy taught on the
course can be tailored to the policies, lifecycle and processes
referenced within the Company or Corporate management framework and business

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
small group exercises involving a case study to provide a practical focus for
the course and 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
