International Council on Systems Engineering Academic Forum 2000 International Council on Systems Engineering Academic Forum 2000 Dr. Donna H. Rhodes, INCOSE President Lucent Technologies Software Products Group Cambridge, Massachusetts USA
2 Our Current INCOSE Goals Provide a focal point for dissemination of knowledge Promote collaboration in systems engineering education and research Establish professional standards for integrity in the practice of systems engineering Improve professional status of all people engaged in the of practice of systems engineering Encourage support from government and industry for research and educational programs
University/Industry Relationships To achieve the goals of INCOSE, we must have collaboration, not simply cooperation…. Cooperation Division of labor, with each party responsible for a portion of the work Division of labor, with each party responsible for a portion of the workCollaboration Mutual engagement of participants in a coordinated effort to address the need Mutual engagement of participants in a coordinated effort to address the need
The 4-C Model (Astroth) Level I: Communication Level II: Cooperation Participation at this level centers on trying to accomplish a specific purpose or goal; informal association of a few people develops for some mutual benefit or obtainable goal, and work is driven by vigorously involved individuals. Level III: Coalition The purpose for forming a coalition is synergy: to amass enough influence and resources to have an impact on an issue beyond what one group could do alone; diverse groups share a measure of responsibility for success. Level IV: Collaboration Organizational relationships are formalized and involve a long-term commitment to address critical and complex issues of wide concern. Collaborations should be long- term and focus on many issues. Participants share resources; conduct/evaluate programs; establish policy.
An international body comprised of leading organizations and experts contributing to the body of knowledge on engineering of systems An organization whose leadership and members are recognized as having the highest expertise to solve systems problems A contributing partner in strategic alliances with other professional societies and leading universities worldwide A center of competence for research, theory, and practices applied to systems challenges INCOSE is the worlds premier engineering professional society for enabling holistic solutions to problems and needs
Symbiosis is an association of two different kinds of entities in which each is beneficial to the other ….and indeed may be essential to the life of the other
