Robert Halligan to Co-Present at the INCOSE Virtual International Symposium on 22 July


PPI Managing Director Robert Halligan FIE Aust CPEng IntPE(Aus) will co-present “Developing the PPI-INCOSE Systems Engineering Tools Database using a Systems Engineering Approach”, as invited content during Session Number: 9.1 on Wednesday, 22 July from 17:50-18:30 UTC+2 (16:50-17:30 Central European Time) of the 30th INCOSE International Symposium. The Systems Engineering Tools Database (SETDB) is a large and sophisticated database of software tools supporting systems engineering practices. 

  • Features of the SETDB include an advanced taxonomy enabling the SETDB user to find software tools:
  • in areas of tool capability, using an advanced taxonomy for easy navigation to tools of interest
  • of specific vendors
  • that have application to each of the process elements used and taught by PPI: requirements analysis, physical design, logical design, effectiveness evaluation and decision (trade-off studies), specification of system elements, system integration, verification of work products, validation of work products, and systems engineering management
  • that have application to each of the life cycle processes defined by the INCOSE Systems Engineering Handbook – A Guide for System Life Cycle Processes and Activities, Fourth Edition.

The SETDB is being co-developed by the two organizations as one initiative under a MOU between PPI and INCOSE to collaborate towards the advancement of systems engineering practice. Robert’s co-presenter will be INCOSE’s John Nallon, Chair of the INCOSE SE Tools Database Working Group. PPI’s René King and Obeo’s Stephane Lacrampeare Co-Chairs to John.

The INCOSE International Symposium is taking place as a virtual conference over 20-22 July.
