The aim of this course is to provide an understanding of the processes and management practices associated with the systems engineering discipline. The course highlights how systems engineering principles can be applied to technical projects, and what products to expect from the systems engineering effort. The course is ideally suited to engineers who are new to the discipline, as well as to project managers and project staff who work with systems engineers. The course also provides an excellent introduction to the workshop, Systems Engineering Practice, which is conducted on the following two days.
Attendees receive a copy of the book Engineering a System: Managing Complex Technical Projects, Faulconbridge, R.I., and Ryan M.J., Argos Press, 2005.
Who Should Attend?
Anyone requiring an understanding of systems engineering; business managers; project managers; capability development staff; project technical staff; systems engineers; hardware and software engineers.
