Free Live Systems Engineering Tutorials & Presentations

Enrich your team with the power of systems engineering, risk free, delivered by industry leaders.

Request a tutorial or presentation from the list below and see your team’s knowledge and capability grow!


1. A Journey Through Systems Engineering
Using an amusing example from start to finish, the presenter will have us performing Requirements Analysis, Physical Design, Logical Design, the conduct of Trade-Off Studies, Specification of system elements, System Integration, Verification, Validation, and Systems Engineering Management, all incorporating a strongly model-based approach (MBSE). In this interactive event, we can expect important principles to shine, and impediments to success to be highlighted.
2. Principles of the Engineering of Systems
Get the principles right, and the rest can follow. Get the principles wrong, and our chances of success are remote. In this presentation, the presenter distills the engineering of systems to 14 basic principles (or for longer versions, 24 principles). Each principle is explained and discussed in an interactive format.
3. Twelve Issues in Systems Engineering
This presentation was delivered at the 2007 International Symposium of the International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE) in San Diego by PPI’s Managing Director and Systems Engineering guru Robert Halligan. The full text of this presentation, which challenges some conventional wisdoms, is now publicly available; this download contains the supporting graphics.
4. Measuring Requirements Quality
In this tutorial, the presenter will explain why a requirements quality metric is one of the most valuable metrics in controlling and improving the outcomes of technical projects. They will go on to explain how to measure the quality of a set of specified requirements. The tutorial includes an interactive workshop in which you will exercise an effective method of measuring requirements quality. You are invited to bring your own requirements! Or select from one of PPI's offerings.
5. Building and Using a System Effectiveness Model
A sound principle of systems engineering is that, when faced with decisions between feasible solution alternatives, we always want to pick the best according to the values of the people we are serving. In this interactive session, the presenter will illustrate how to build a system effectiveness model, then how to use the model to support decision-making between feasible design alternatives.
