ISO 15288 Training Workshop

ISO 15288 is a systems engineering standard covering processes and lifecycle stages. It defines a set of processes and associated terminology from an engineering viewpoint. These processes can be applied at any level in the hierarchy of a system’s structure.

The ISO 15288 standard began in 1994 when the need for a common systems engineering process framework was badly needed. The previously accepted standard MIL STD 499A was canceled after a memo from SECDEF prohibited the use of most United States Military Standards without a waiver.

The Department of Defense (DoD) and the defense industry have found that applying systems engineering (SE) processes and practices throughout the system life cycle improves project performance, as measured by the project’s ability to satisfy technical requirements within cost and schedule constraints.

In other words, projects that use effective SE processes perform better than those that do not. Given this knowledge, it is in the best interest of both acquirers and suppliers to ensure that defense acquisition projects use effective SE processes as the core of the technical management effort.

There are many benefits of using ISO 15288, including:

  • Provides a life cycle framework to perform systems and software tasks/activities in an organized disciplined manner
  • Provides a process framework that can be tailored to suit
  • Provides a framework that can reduce risk
  • Provides a framework for achieving customer expectations
  • Provides a basis for communications
  • Provides a basis for coordinating work

The ISO 15288 international standard can be used for one or more of the following reasons.

  • A specific project can use the standard for engineering, utilizing, supporting or retiring a system of-interest.
  • An organization can use the International Standard for conducting the operation of one or more of the system life cycle stages
  • A domain organization or other organization can use the international standard for developing domain-specific or organization-specific standards. These can address the engineering of systems, the management of engineering activities or the operation of one of the system life cycle stages
  • Multiple organizations can use the international standard as a basis for joint projects

But the true value of the 15288 standards is not in the rote performance of the processes and technical reviews they define. Rather, it is in the thought processes and resulting outcomes of the activities that enable better decision making from both technical and programmatic perspectives.

ISO 15288 Training Workshop Course by Tonex

ISO 15288 Training, ISO/IEC/IEEE 15288 Training is a 3-day training workshop on Systems and software engineering — System life cycle processes.

Participants will learn how to use ISO/IEC/IEEE8 15288 standard, “Systems and Software
Engineering–System Life Cycle Processes,” for use by acquisition and system projects. ISO 15288 Training, ISO/IEC/IEEE 15288 training will cover how ISO/IEC/IEEE8 15288 standard establishes a common process framework for describing the life cycle of man-made systems and defines a set of systems engineering (SE) processes and associated terminology typical for the full system life cycle, including conception, development, production, utilization, support, and retirement.

ISO 15288 standard also supports the definition, control, assessment, and improvement of these processes. These processes can be applied concurrently, iteratively, and recursively to a system and its elements throughout the life cycle of a system.
