Project Performance International (PPI) and The International Council of Systems Engineering (INCOSE) have executed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to collaborate in professional areas of mutual interest, to the benefit of the practice of systems engineering. Short term initiatives include:
- joint development and operation of an on-line systems engineering tools database providing free access by INCOSE members and PPI clients to systems engineering tools data; and
- free access by INCOSE members to PPI’s Systems Engineering Goldmine (SEG). The SEG is a curated archive of currently 4GB+ of downloadable systems engineering documents and a searchable database of 7800+ defined terms used in, or relevant to, systems engineering.
PPI’s Managing Director, Mr. Robert Halligan FIE Aust CPEng IntPE(Aus) said; “This collaboration between PPI and INCOSE is a significant step towards PPI’s vision of all engineers worldwide practicing systems engineering, as the way that engineering is done. We at PPI look forward with excitement to working even more closely with INCOSE in the future, to the benefit of humankind.”

The International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE), the largest organization in the world dedicated to systems engineering, signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Project Performance International (PPI), an Australia-headquartered transnational corporation using systems engineering to improve client performance.
The MOU between PPI and INCOSE formalizes the partnership between the two parties as they develop and operate the Systems Engineering Tools Database (SETDB), an online library of systems engineering software tools data to support engineering and business processes. INCOSE and PPI’s partnership also includes the sharing of PPI’s Systems Engineering Goldmine, a resource of over 4GB of systems engineering documents and a searchable database of definitions of more than 7,800 terms used in systems engineering. The collaboration also embraces the delivery of an educational seminar series for infrastructure professionals.
“This collaboration between PPI and INCOSE is another step towards PPI’s vision of all engineers worldwide practicing systems engineering, as the way that engineering is done. We at PPI look forward with excitement to working more closely with INCOSE in the future, to the benefit of humankind,” said PPI’s Managing Director Mr. Robert Halligan.
“INCOSE and PPI have a mutual commitment to improving the state of systems engineering practice. These projects help us to achieve our shared goal and to bring the systems engineering community closer together as we continue to innovate,” said Garry Roedler, President of INCOSE.
The joint development of the Systems Engineering Tools Database will be hosted on an INCOSE server linked to the INCOSE and PPI websites, and will provide current and future members of INCOSE and clients of PPI with data on systems engineering software tools.
