ENGRG 7840 Systems Engineering Management
|Course Number:||ENGRG 7840|
|Course Name:||Systems Engineering Management|
|Course Description:||New technologies and time constraints need to meet the challenges of satisfying customer needs such as performance, quality, and over-all cost effectiveness. This sets up a framework for effective system engineering and management of complex systems. The systems engineering effort needs to integrate a wide variety of key design disciplines, apply robust design methods and tools in a manner as to achieve system engineering objectives, assess and control through design reviews, evaluations, feedback and corrective action. The management issues pertaining to the application of systems engineering to various projects is equally important. Principles of System Engineering Management Plan (SEMP), organizational aspects of Systems Engineering such as functional, product line, and matrix structures, and interfaces between the customer, the producer, and suppliers are some key topics that need to be addressed as part of Systems Engineering Management.|
- Define the tactics, processes, procedures, and "best practices" for systems acquisition as defined by professional systems engineering organizations like the International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE), the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), the American National Standards Institute/Electronic Industry Alliance (ANSI/EIA), and the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).
- Look for the "big picture" of systems architecting so that we can develop systems that are socially useful, politically acceptable, technologically sound, and environmentally safe.
- Describe the importance of the technical and management processes involved with systems engineering (through each acquisition phase) and how they relate/interact with each other.
- Share with co-workers your awareness that the factors that can weigh in on a system's development aren't purely technical, schedule, or cost-related.
- Balance the engineering aims for technical optimization with the need for architecting for client satisfaction.
- Define in detail a system's life cycle – from requirements development, to design and implementation, to testing and evaluation, fielding and support, and, finally, disposal—and the methods and tools recommended for each of these phases.
- Recognize and implement the important components of systems engineering: the technical processes (i.e., logical analysis, design solution, integration, validation, etc.) and the technical management processes (risk management, configuration management, SEMP development, etc.) that go along with them.
- Draw deep insights and heuristic principles from the knowledge that has been culled from years of experience, from many different kinds of systems.
