Systems Engineering Process Courses
The systems engineering process involves the top-down development of a system’s functional and physical requirements from a basic set of mission objectives.
The purpose is to organize information and knowledge to assist those who manage, direct, and control the planning, development, and operation of the systems necessary to accomplish the mission.
The system’s physical requirements lead to the specific hardware components that must be acquired or developed to perform the identified functions. The systems engineering process should be conducted in a way that includes consideration of alternative system configurations.
The result should be a set of traceable requirements that may be used in design and procurement and in system verification and validation, a baseline description of the physical system, and a baseline description of the operational concept.
This should also include a set of documented interfaces to ensure compatibility of different parts of the system as they are developed.
The systems engineering process encompasses all creative, manual and technical activities necessary to define the product and which need to be carried out to convert a system definition to a sufficiently detailed system design specification for product manufacture and deployment. Design and development of a system can be divided into four stages:
- task definition (informative definition)
- conceptual stage (cardinal definition)
- design stage (formative definition)
- implementation stage (manufacturing definition)
Depending on their application, tools are used for various stages of the systems engineering process.
Systems Engineering Process Courses by Tonex
Tonex offers eight different systems engineering process courses intended to teach attendees how to transform needs and requirements into a set of system product and process descriptions, generate information for decision makers, and provide input for the next level of development.
Take our Introduction to Systems Engineering – Lifecycle and Processes, a 4-day course that covers technical exercises such as modeling, prototyping, trade-off analysis and testing, and management practices including risk analysis and mitigation, which builds best practices in the field of systems engineering.
This hands-on training is specifically concentrated on project lifecycle planning, lifecycle technical and management processes, and relation to the principles of systems thinking.
Another popular class, Verification, Validation, & Accreditation Training | VV&A Training Course, lasts 3 days and provides all aspects of acquisition and systems engineering disciplines employing rigorous methodologies for evaluating and assessing evidence to determine whether a model or simulation should be used in a given situation and establishing its credibility.
CFD Training, Computational Fluid Dynamics, delivers an introduction to the scientific rules and practical engineering usages of CFD. Applied Systems Engineering – V-Model Training is an introduction to systems engineering and V-Model for project managers and project staff. It provides a high-level view of a broad and rich topic area.
Tonex has been a leader in teaching cutting edge engineering courses for almost three decades. Our instructors are specialists in their fields with real world experience (this does make a difference).
We also welcome requests from organizations, agencies and companies to tailor courses for a specific need.
