ISO/IEC 25010, A Quality Model


INCOSE UK´s London Local Group and The Institution of Engineering and Technology through the Systems Engineering Network have joined forces to reflect on this draft standard of a quality model. “In the new model for software quality in the draft ISO/IEC CD 25010 standard, the concept of quality in use has been broadened to embrace a wider range of issues than was common in usability” (Bevan, 2009)

The Systems Engineering Competency Framework and Guidelines and How They Could be Applied to Rail


The Systems Engineering Competency Framework and Guidelines documents were developed in response to an issue identified by the INCOSE UK Advisory Board (UKAB).whose member organisations wanted a common language with which to describe and discuss the competencies that are required to conduct good systems engineering. The objective was ‘to have a measurable set of competencies for systems engineering which will achieve national recognition and will be useful to the enterprises represented by the UKAB’.

Developing Systems Delivery Capability in the South West


Over the past two years Paul Shakspeare has been leading a project funded by the South West RDA to identify and resolve strategic skills gaps in the aerospace sector. As a result of this work a training and development strategy to respond to the skill shortages and professional development needs critical to the successful delivery of complex systems has been formulated. This session gives systems engineers, project managers and HR professionals a chance to feed into this process and help steer regional strategy and its associated funding.

Autumn Assembly 2009 (AA09)


Approaching New Horizons in a Systems World

The INCOSE UK 2009 Autumn Assembly will focus on the role of Systems Engineering in an increasingly “Systems World”, with sessions on:

  • Demystifying some of the current initiatives which are addressing systems problems
  • Introducing powerful techniques we can use to work together on systems problems
  • Revisiting some of the fundamentals of Systems Engineering and looking at how they deal with the issues of the modern systems world

The event has something for both Experienced Systems Professionals who want to understand better how Systems Engineering fits into an integrated approach, and those new to Systems Engineering who want to learn about new techniques, or understand some of the fundamentals and how to apply them.

Systems Engineering in Railways


The INCOSE UK Rail Interest Group (RIG) is proud to be working with the IET to put on a one-day seminar at the IET's premises in Savoy Place, London on 11th November 2009 in 'Systems Engineering in Railways'.

The seminar, delivered by senior figures within the rail industry, will illustrate the manner in which systems engineering techniques are becoming increasingly essential for modern railway engineers. Subtitled ‘Making it work for you’, the seminar will be of value to anyone needing to understand the benefits of systems engineering techniques in a railway environment as well as providing an opportunity for systems engineers to explore the current state of the art in rail systems engineering.

There is an optional ,pre-seminar tutorial to ensure that the seminar is fully accessible to the non-expert so, after you have taken a look yourself, please consider passing the details on to any colleagues who might benefit from a better appreciation of systems engineering in railways.

The programme is available at http://www.theiet.org/events/2009/systems-engineering-prog-280909.pdf and more general details are on the IET web-site at http://www.theiet.org/events/2009/railway-systems.cfm. You will also find details of how to book your place at the seminar on this page. Please note that you cannot book for this event via INCOSE UK - the IET is handling all bookings. If you cannot find the answer to your question on one of these web pages, please contact the RIG Chair, Bruce Elliott on bruce.elliott@arbutus-tc.co.uk

Development of Sustainable Systems


Change is often the key driver behind systems engineering projects, but what about all of those undesirable and unwelcome changes? This event will look at systems from a sustainability point of view, both for the systems themselves, and for the environments (in the widest sense) within which they operate.

Systems Engineering in Different Domains


Does the manner in which systems engineering is carried out depend entirely upon the context in which it is done, or are there some universal principles which will always apply? This interactive workshop event will seek to tease out what the differences are in the practice of systems engineering across different domains, assess why they have come about, and see whether anything can be learned from the transfer of knowledge.

How not to do Systems Engineering


Until now, Rail Interest Group events have been designed to serve positive systems engineers who are working hard to make their project a success. We are now pleased to provide an event for the community of project saboteurs. In the informal environment of the function room at the Duke of York pub in Fitzrovia, a number of experienced systems engineers will describe their favoured systems-related method of bringing a project to its knees. There will then be an opportunity for members to describe their own preferred methods and a discussion on which is most effective. The event will finish at 1830H but informal discussions may continue over a drink or two.

INCOSE UK Rail Systems Engineering Workshop


After a successful series of evening presentations, the RIG is now organising a day-long workshop to explore in more detail three difficult questions that rail organisations face in increasing their take-up of systems engineering: 1. How should we apply systems engineering principles in the rail environment? 2. How do we find enough rail systems people? 3. How do we write systems engineering into contracts?

Towards Visualisations of Configuration Management


One of the principal areas of concern for managing large programmes is the management of risk associated with change. The central issue is one of communication. This presentation proposes better methods of communicating change. An illustration of this is shown using the Victoria Line Upgrade project, where a visualisation of the configuration has improved communication. Areas of success are highlighted and a number of improvement areas identified.

Invitation to the presentation of a new report and reception The Global Networked Value Circle: A New Model for Manufacturing


The Strategy and International Business Group has recently written a new report in partnership with Capgemini Consulting. A summary is attached.

This event is restricted to a limited number of guests who might benefit from a briefing on the study and the opportunity to meet and consider the implications with other business leaders concerned with these changes. A new study will shortly commence, again in collaboration with Capgemini, that will examine some of the implications of the changing global manufacturing value chain in more detail, and we would welcome your contribution to sharpening its focus.

System Architecture


Systems architecture is the means of turning a good idea into a viable product, practical system or usable process. So, for technologists, systems architecture provides hope that their brilliant idea won't die because it's been used the wrong way; for semi-academics in the spin-outs, it's a means of ensuring that their investment gives a good prospect of return via sellable, maintainable, reconfigurable products.

The meeting will present different perspectives on systems architecting, drawing on client side systems management and supplier side approaches from different domains and at different scales, and debate the questions “what do open architectures and standards mean for your business, and can you use the wider methods, heuristics and ways of thinking of the system architect?

EA, IA, O – Enterprise Architecture in the Rail Domain


Systems Engineering was introduced to manage the complexity risk in large projects to replace, merge, augment and transition major mission critical systems.

The success of SE has allowed more difficult and risky projects to be tackled which in turn has stimulated additional disciplines. This evolutionary cycle promises approaches to more “wicked” problems in “complex adaptive systems” as seen in the non-military evolution of “business capability” involving people, competencies and technical systems.

The presentation will explore the challenges of the expanded problem domain and attempt to position the relationships between the disciplines.
