Workshop to understand different perspectives on agile SE


At the inaugural INCOSE Agile SE working group, the group identified that there was no clear and universally agreed definition of Agile Systems Engineering. The group agreed to hold an initial workshop to understand what is meant by ‘Agile SE’. This workshop will use Soft Systems Methodology to understand the different worldviews of Agile SE, and if time permits to analyse the differences between worldview. The workshop is open to all INCOSE UK individual and CAB members. We are interested in people who have applied agile SE methods, who have a business need to apply agile SE or just an interest in the subject. No prior experience of Soft Systems is required.

This is a working session of the Agile SE working group rather than a training event of management session. Participants will be expected to work together to develop a series of alternative views of what Agile SE is.

Duncan Kemp has kindly offered to facilitate this workshop and Thales are providing a great location.


We will need to know your nationality and your company name and address if you intend to attend. Please register through this site and we will pick up the other details in follow up conversations.

Quantification of the Value of Systems Engineering, and the influence of the organisation


In 2000, Sarah Sheard and Chris Miller published “The Shangri-La of ROI” on the subject of the value provided by Systems Engineering (SE). In the opening paragraph, they summarized: “This paper shows that: 1) There are no “hard numbers”; 2) There will be no hard numbers in the foreseeable future; 3) If there were hard numbers, there wouldn’t be a way to apply them to your situation; and 4) if you did use such numbers, no one would believe you anyway.”#However, time has moved on, and recent studies by Eric Honour and by the National Defence Industries Association (led by Joseph Elm) have started to quantify the correlation between SE practices and business benefit. Sheard and Miller’s points (1) and (2) are  therefore seen to have been overcome. However, the study results need careful interpretation and consideration of the organizational context in which they apply. This presentation will cover some empirical rules for consideration of point (3), and start to address the barriers to adoption of point (4).

An outline of the presentation is as follows:
- Different models for the business value of SE
- The conclusions of the relevant studies, and implications for the ROI in SE
- The dependence of the business benefit correlation with  project complexity
and individual / organisational competence
- The evolution of maturity in SE praxis, by individuals and organisations
- A possible interpretative structural model of achieving maximum value of SE through improvement of praxis

Continuous Engineering: A vision for the future of engineering. A conversation between INCOSE and IBM


Continuous engineering describes the essential capability that engineering organisations must foster to successfully develop the increasingly sophisticated and connected products and systems that markets and customers now demand. Continuous engineering isn’t a wholesale replacement of systems engineering or existing techniques such as agile and lean; instead it is rethinking of the key practices needed to scale development to meet future engineering demands—practices such as continuous verification, unlocking engineering knowledge and strategic reuse.

If you want to join the conversation about a better way to do things, then join this webcast on 29th October to hear Jon Holt of INCOSE and Greg Gorman & Barclay Brown of IBM discuss continuous engineering and its relevance to the systems engineering profession.

Transforming the Enterprise Using a Systems Approach


 

The ESE Interest Group and Midlands Local Group joint forces to bring you the last talk in the 2014 series, given by Dr James Martin – the distinguished US author and key contributor to the field.

 

Transforming the Enterprise Using a Systems Approach

Summary

Enterprise Systems Engineering (ESE) is an emerging doscipline that can be used to more confidently and rapidly create the essential changes for the mdoern enterprise to survive in these days of enormous economic and social uncertainty. This presentation describes a set of principles and concepts which enable more effective application of the systems approach to drive enterprise transformation. The systems approach includes technical activities of course, but it must also provide a robust apprach for addressing the unique leadership and managerial challenges involved. 

James Martin is an enterprise architect and systems engineer affiliated with The Aerospace Corporation developing solutions for information and space systems.  He was a key author on the BKCASE project in development of the SE Body of Knowledge (SEBOK), contributing articles on Enterprise Systems Engineering. He wrote a chapter on “Transforming the Enterprise Using a Systems Approach”  in the book Beyond Alignment: Applying Systems Thinking in Architecting Enterprises.

Dr. Martin led the working group responsible for developing ANSI/EIA 632, a US national standard that defines the processes for engineering a system.  He previously worked for Raytheon Systems Company as a lead systems engineer and AT&T Bell Labs. His book Systems Engineering Guidebook, was published by CRC Press in 1996.  Dr. Martin is an INCOSE Fellow and was leader of the Standards Technical Committee. He received the INCOSE Founders Award for his long and distinguished achievements in the field and is currently leading INCOSE’s Systems Science initiative.

Enterprise Systems Engineering IG


The SESAR Enterprise
 
We pick up after summer break with an Invited talk by John Lomax of Airbus Defence & Space, who will join us from his office in Brussels.
 
Synopsis: A programmatic overview will be given of the Single European Sky Air Traffic Management System Development Programme (SESAR) - with observations on the application of Systems Engineering in the context of the new paradigms of Enterprise Systems and Systems of Systems Engineering (ESE and SoSE). The presentation will include a summary of the of the programme scope and objectives, with special emphasis on key challenges, including its size and complexity and the emerging SE responses.  The talk will be illustrated by slides and an audio-visual presentation. Ample time will be allowed for discussion of points arising. 
 
Presenter: John Lomax is a Systems Engineer with Airbus Defence and Space with over 28 years experience that include international assignments across five different countries. He has a degree in Control Systems and an Advanced Systems Engineering Diploma and is an INCOSE CSEP and Senior Certification Application Reviewer. Previous notable positions includes the lead requirements and systems engineering role for the Prognostics and Health Management System of the Joint Strike Fighter Programme. John is currently on assignment as one of the 'Technical Coherence Coordinators' of the Industrial Support Team at the SESAR Joint Undertaking European Commission Agency located in Brussels.
 
Although the talk continues the on-going exploration of enterprise-related issues, it will undoubtedly be of interest to those who have not previously attended the IG and who wish to gain some insight into complex multi-national programmes. 
 
[Please note that are currently planning a session from 4pm for those involved in the presentation on ESE & SoS for ASEC 14. Details to be confirmed nearer the time.]
 
In order to comply with Defence Acedemy's rules for visitor access, we ask those wishing to attend to register by close of play on Friday 26th September, either on line - ie below - or by contacting Peter Brook on dashwoodbrook@aol.com ,

Agile Working Group inaugural meeting


The first meeting of the INCOSE UK Agile Working Group will be at IBM Warwick on Thursday 7 August starting at 10am and with an intended finish of 4pm. I know that is not convenient for everyone; I will try to ensure that any important points are captured so that we can share them with anyone unable to attend.

Please can you let me know if you intend to attend, or if you are sending someone else.

I would appreciate it if you could come prepared. Some things I would like you to have thought about in advance are:

  1. What is the driving force behind your interest in Agile for Systems Engineering (what need are you addressing)
  2. What do you want to get out of the Working Group
  3. What are your current references for understanding Agile
  4. What I hope to get out of this first meeting is a goal statement for the working group and a plan for starting work on at least one output (possibly a z-guide)

    If you have any really good references, then it would be really helpful if you could print out some notes, links, abstracts, references, or whatever you have, with enough copies to go around. I am hoping that by the meeting, I will have a plan for a collaboration space, either on the INCOSE UK domain, or elsewhere, so that we can share information easily.

    I will have some information about the INCOSE UK expectations of a Working Group, and we will have an update from the INCOSE International Agile Systems Working Group.

ESE Interest Group


After two workshop meetings, we return to presentation-mode with a talk from one of INCOSE UK's most influential members, who will speak on issues of direct concern to Enteprise Systems Engineering.

 

“Addressing Root Causes through Enterprise-level Collaboration”.

 
The talk will be based on the presenter's experience from Niteworks and the development of its White Papers, including Continuous Capability Evolution and Architecting Styles (but will also mention Complex Systems Interventions and Capability Coherence). It will focus the major part of the briefing on the first two of these as exemplars. 
 
Presenter:
 

Mike Wilkinson is the Technical Director of Niteworks, where he is on secondment from Atkins. He has a first degree in physics and a PhD in theoretical physics from King’s College London. He is past president of the UK Chapter of INCOSE and is currently their Academic Director. He is co-chair of both INCOSE’s UK and International Architecture Working Groups. Within Atkins he is a Technical Director in the Defence Business Unit and was first chair of the Atkins Systems Technical Network. He is a visiting professor at the University of Loughborough, where he is associated with the Engineering System of Systems (ESoS) group.

This topic should be of interest to a wide cross-section of INCOSE membership, who are encouraged to attend even if they have not previously been involved with the ESE Interest Group. There wil be ample opportunity for discussion with Mike and between attendees. If previous meetings are any guide, this will be lively, informative and stimulating.

Time wil be taken at the end of the meeting to discuss future plans, in particular the way ahead for the workshop topic: ESE vs SOSE. 

The usual rules for booking in apply: to be admitted at reception, please book in via this site by close of business on Friday 4th July
