Systems Engineering Practice

Course Group: 
Systems Engineering

COURSE OVERVIEW

Systems Engineering Practice, which includes our Introduction to Systems Engineering course as the first three days, adds a two-day practical workshop that reinforces the material introduced in the introductory course.

In addition to providing further detail on the early stages of system design, Systems Engineering Practice presents a series of simulated design exercises that allow attendees to apply knowledge of systems engineering processes and management to a real-life system development. The exercise is conducted as a combination of tutorials and activities that step through the early system life cycle, focusing on Conceptual Design and Preliminary Design. Throughout the exercises, realistic development issues are introduced. To reinforce the understanding gained in this exercise, attendees undertake an individual design exercise.

No subject matter expertise is assumed—the exercises are conducted on a project with which all participants are familiar. The emphasis of the workshop is on the process rather than the technical detail.
