Welcome from the Director

Welcome from the Capability Systems Centre Director, Professor Mike Ryan

The Capability Systems Centre has been established at UNSW Canberra to bring together expertise to address the challenges associated with the development of capability. 

All organisations, large or small, undertake the development of capability and the acquisition of capability systems. Yet, there is little research in the space and there are few methodologies, tools or techniques available.

The principal focus of this centre is to address those shortfalls and, through its cutting-edge research and analysis, publications, education, and events; combine world-class academic expertise across a range of disciplinary areas relevant to the development of capability.

The centre's activities focus on systems acquisition and in particular on the application of systems science, systems thinking, complex systems, system of systems, systems engineering, requirements engineering, and project management.

We look forward to working with our many partners to provide a critical mass of research in this crucial area.
