Robert Halligan to Present on the Aral Sea Human Disaster at the INCOSE IS 2019


During the INCOSE International Symposium, on Wednesday the 24th of July 10:45-11:15, our very own Robert Halligan will be presenting an exciting presentation titled, ‘How Systems Engineering Could Have Prevented the Aral Sea Disaster.’

This presentation will give a brief background to the harrowing man-made natural disaster of the late 1900s through to today, and will outline the systems engineering principles that were violated over several decades that led to the desiccation of the sea.

The presentation will also provide a range of examples of the kind of analyses that could have been conducted to deliver a successful and sustainable solution to the problem that existed. If you will be attending the conference, we hope you to see you at Robert’s presentation.

The content of the presentation will be as exciting as the outfit Robert will be wearing (hint – it is fitting for the theme). Even if you are unable to attend, please do come and say hi to us at our exhibitor booth; several PPI staff will be in attendance and we are looking forward to seeing you there.
