System Engineering fundamentals training provides a basic, conceptual-level description of engineering management disciplines that relate to the development and life cycle management of a system. For the non-engineer and non technical mangers it provides an overview of how a system is developed. For the engineer and project manager it provides a basic framework for planning and assessing system development.
Participants will learn about concept of systems engineering, system thinking, System of Systems (SoS), system/project development life cycles, financial and management issues, and decision-making principals necessary to manage technical project and developing complex engineering systems including: System Engineering Project Management (SEMP), technical management of systems projects, Concept of Operations (ConOps) principles, systems definition, requirements engineering, systems analysis, high and low level design including system synthesis and architecture, implementation, integration, verification and validation, operation, maintenance and system retirement.
Target Audience: The intended audience for this course is analysts, engineers, product developers, project managers, and systems engineers.
The class consists of pedagogical elements that are interwoven to maximize the use of individual, group and class time. These elements are lectures, in-class activities, teamwork, group assignments, quizzes and a simple system engineering project. The overall structure of the class following the “V-Model.”
The methods of learning consist of a visual presentation on systems engineering, textbook, discussions, activities and involvement of all participants in practical exercises to demonstrate application of knowledge learned.
