Systems Engineering Certificate

Systems engineering is about coping with complexity. Systems engineering helps avoid omissions and invalid assumptions, helps to manage real world changing issues, and produce the most efficient, economic and robust solution.

The systems engineering process delivers a better understanding of the client needs and helps program managers to manage change and configuration effectively through the project lifecycle. By using the systems engineering approach, project costs and timescales are managed and controlled more effectively by having greater control and awareness of the project requirements, interfaces and issues and the consequences of any changes.

Studies show that when systems engineering is not used, bad things happen, such as:

  • Over one-third of all projects fail
  • Over two-thirds of all projects will not achieve all their goals
  • Worse yet, failure usually becomes apparent when the project is overdue and over budget

Systems engineering enables building, analyzing and managing a system – all kinds of systems from electrical, mechanical or chemical to biological or one involving business processes and logistics.

Traditionally, engineering disciplines are defined through physical attributes. For example, electrical engineers work with circuits and transistors, aeronautical engineers with airplanes and rockets.

Systems engineering transcends the physical nature of what is designed or managed—if “it” consists of multiple interacting components performing a function that cannot be achieved by any one component alone, then “it” is a system, and systems engineers can work to understand and improve it.

Systems engineering models and processes usually organize themselves around the concept of a life cycle. Like the definition of systems engineering, the detailed conceptualization of life cycle is by no means unique across the communities that employ the discipline.

The International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE) systems engineering process is a widely recognized representation of classical systems engineering. ISO/IEC 15288 is an international systems engineering standard covering processes and life-cycle stages. It defines a set of processes divided into four categories: technical, project, agreement, and enterprise.

Systems engineering encompasses a holistic view to the design and analysis of engineering problems by complex systems that are represented by mathematical models. In a more generic sense, system analysis has to do with planning, designing, manufacturing, operating and managing to exploit functional, technical, social, environmental, and esthetic applications.

It requires the creative manipulation and coordination of materials and technology, and most important of all, the stability and reliability of its performance.

Most observers feel that the twenty-first century provides an exciting opportunity for systems engineering. New advances in our understanding of the traditional discipline continue to emerge. At the same time, new forms of systems engineering have developed to address the engineering challenges of systems-of-systems (SoS) and enterprise systems.

Even at this point in their evolution, these new forms display their own principles, processes, and practices. Some are different in degree than engineering at the system level, while others are different in kind.

While it’s impossible to predict how the traditional and new forms of systems engineering will evolve, however, a robust future lies ahead. Increases in technological complexity result in new challenges in architecture, networks, hardware and software engineering, and human systems integration.

At the same time, the engineering scale for systems exceeds levels that could have been imagined only a short time ago. As a consequence, all forms of systems engineering will be needed to solve future engineering challenges, sometimes separately—yet increasingly—in combination.
