Applied Systems Engineering for Logisticians Training

Applied Systems Engineering for Logisticians training will present the fundamentals of a systems engineering approach to solving complex problems. Applied Systems Engineering for Logisticians training covers the underlying attitudes as well as the process definitions that make up systems engineering. The model presented will be a research-proven combination of the best existing standards. Stay current and build your systems engineering expertise with our Applied Systems Engineering for Logisticians.

The Systems Engineering Process is a comprehensive, iterative and recursive problem-solving process, applied sequentially top-down by integrated teams. Logisticians will learn how systems engineering transforms needs and requirements into a set of system product and process descriptions, generate information for decision makers, and provides input for the next level of development. The process is applied sequentially, one level at a time, adding additional detail and definition with each level of development.

Applied Systems Engineering (SE) for Logisticians covers methodical and disciplined approach for the specification, design, development, realization, technical management, operations and retirement of a system. A system is an aggregation of system elements and enabling system elements to achieve a given purpose or provide a needed capability. The enabling system elements provide the means for delivering a capability into service, keeping it in service or ending its service, and may include those processes or products necessary for developing, producing, testing, deploying and sustaining the system.

Logisticians analyze and coordinate an organization’s supply chain. Applied Systems Engineering (SE) for logisticians identifies the role of logisticians in the engineering discipline to integrate all the key elements of a system into one overall system and managing it throughout its lifecycle from cradle to grave. Systems engineering focuses on the overall development process of a system that is based on established processes, documented needs and traceable communications or interaction among the customers, users, engineers, and other stakeholders.

The overall goal of SE is to develop and design a system that meets a specific set of requirements (needs) in the guidelines established by the Program Manager (PM). A logistician analyzes and coordinates an organization’s supply chain related to their systems and system of systems (SoS) including product logistics and support aspects. Logisticians shall be involved in entire life cycle of a product, which includes how a product is acquired, distributed, allocated, delivered, supported and maintained.

Systems engineers develop, design, allocate, and manage user and system level requirements, lead the development of the system architecture, evaluate design tradeoffs, balance technical risk between systems, define and assess interfaces, provide oversight of verification and validation activities, as well as many other tasks throughout the course of a program. From logisticians point of view, a SE is the technical discipline that glues all the pieces together to make the product.

“Systems engineering is an interdisciplinary engineering management process that evolves and verifies an integrated, life-cycle balanced set of system solutions that satisfy customer needs.”

Logisticians shall have knowledge of all the system activities including:

  • Development phasing that controls the design process and provides baselines that coordinate design efforts
  • Systems Engineering Process that provides a structure for solving design problems and tracking requirements flow through the design effort, and
  • Life-cycle integration that involves customers in the design process and ensures that the system developed is viable throughout its life.
