Fundamentals of Systems Engineering 1-day Tutorial

Monday, 22 October 2018

This day-long tutorial initially demonstrates the business purpose of a systems approach to the engineering of things, providing abundant evidence of its high value. Then into principles and methods. Over the course of the day, you will practice, in workshop format, analysis-based methods of requirements capture and validation, model-based design, and the conduct of trade-o studies, all on a single, technology-based system. These activities will be performed within a sound conceptual framework introduced early in the tutorial. This introduction to systems engineering is aimed at any practicing engineer or engineering manager in the energy technology arena, irrespective of your prior level of experience with systems engineering.

Presentation: A Framework of Knowledge, Skills and Attitudes Conducive to High Performance Engineering (Refer to the published technical program for timing)

Tuesday or Wednesday, 23 or 24 October 2018

Engineering projects are notoriously challenging, no more so than projects of the types widely represented at this conference – projects that are groundbreaking, complex and critically important. We are all trying to do these projects well, and to do them better, which drives the topic of this presentation.

Engineering is a team sport, and like football, the performance of the team is governed by the the Knowledge, the Skills and the Attitudes (KSAs) of the team members. The KSAs relate to the traditional engineering streams of technology, mathematics and physics, the systems engineering stream of knowing how to go about applying the technology, mathematics and physics in a way conducive to success, and soft skills such a communication and emotional intelligence that distinguish a team from just a group.

A variety of engineering competency frameworks exists. In this presentation, we overview existing systems engineering competency frameworks. We then present a new, recommended framework; new in terms of publication but old in that it has been the foundation of the systems engineering education of over 13,000 engineers worldwide. This recommended framework exhibits a strong alignment with, we believe, practical, in-the-trenches, e cient, value-driven, high-performance engineering.

Expert SE/PM Panel on PMIAA

A Panel of experts (including Virginia Greiman, Randy Ili, Robert Halligan, and Mike Pa ord) moderated by Bill Moylan discuss the current state of PM/SE Integration and the implications of the Program Management Improvement and Accountability Act (PMIAA).

Presentation: The Integration of Project Management and Systems Engineering (Refer to the published technical program for timing)

Thursday 25 October, 2018, morning.

This one-hour presentation on the integration of program/project management and systems engineering focusses on the more technical aspects of achieving the desired integration, including the management framework of Project (Work) Breakdown Structure, selecting the most appropriate style of development, integrating technical project performance data with cost and schedule data, and integrating engineering decision-making with project decision-making.
