How can systems engineers and asset managers work together better?

Traditionally, Systems Engineering (SE) and Asset Management (AM) have been separate disciplines: SE has focussed on building optimal systems while AM has focussed on delivering business objectives throughout the asset lifecycle.

The aim of the workshop is to help practitioners of the two disciplines work together better. At the end of this workshop, participants will have developed a shared understanding of:

  • The overlaps between SE and AM
  • How the two disciplines (processes, standards and tools) relate to each other
  • How SE supports AM throughout the asset’s lifecycle

The workshop is also an opportunity for participants to network and broaden their horizons.

The workshop will start with scene-setting presentations and participants will then work together to identify opportunities for SE and AM practitioners to work together better and to formulate actions to exploit these opportunities.
