12 To provide the single resource for accessing system engineering knowledge and skills for performance assessment, training/education and potential use in certification or licensing of professionals SystemsEngineeringBodyofKnowledge (SEBOK) (SEBOK)

13 Refereed Journal Systems Engineering, the Journal of the International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE), is a primary source of multidisciplinary information for the systems engineering and management of products and services, and processes of all types

14 Systems Engineering Andrew P. Sage, Editor-in-Chief Month to Month Statistics Circulation Figures for Systems Engineering * 38 print copies sent to institutions in 2000 * 3,014 member subscribers * 43 personal subscribers * 68 out of 3,014 members of INCOSE have registered for online access to the journal

15 INCOSE Systems Engineering Center of Excellence INCOSE Systems Engineering Center of Excellence All participants are individuals who have expressed an interest in advancement of systems research and willingness to contribute SECOE has successfully matched up interested researchers to collaborate on systems research opportunities INCOSE has provided seed funding for first major research project on the value of systems engineering -- awarded to Dr. Brian Mar 51 Individuals from 22 US Universities 22 US Universities 9 non-US Universities 9 non-US Universities 9 countries 9 countries 16 industry/government orgs 16 industry/government orgs Eric Honour, SECOE Leader

16 SECOE has defined six areas of desired research 1.0 Value of Systems Engineering - develop knowledge to quantify the value of systems engineering 2.0 Systems Engineering Processes and Process Improvement Systems - develop a theoretically sound and fully connected set of useful processes 3.0 Systems Engineering Methods - develop a theoretical basis for known methods while extending the processes with new theories and new methods 4.0 Systems Engineering Automation - analysis and proof of automation effectiveness when applied to specific methods under specific conditions 5.0 Human Issues in Systems - research into the impacts of human issues on systems 6.0 Human Issues in Systems Engineering - develop and prove methods for the creation of effective engineering teams

17 SECOE project is gathering statistical information to provide the necessary quantitative relationship between SE investment and program results. The primary project hypothesis is to quantify the "known" intuitive relationships between system-level technical effort and quality, cost, schedule, and risk. Value of Systems Engineering -- Research Project In many ways, the field of systems engineering suffers from a lack of quantified information. Managers know that system analysis and design are important to successful projects, but too much analysis can cause a project to stall in "paralysis by analysis." No information yet exists to indicate the desired optimum. As a result, funding for systems engineering tasks is largely determined by perceptive heuristics tempered by current urgency. Systems engineering is viewed by many as a risk reduction ameliorative rather than a wisely-determined discipline. This view results in cyclic funding and de-funding of systems engineering tasks, and consequential (and delayed) cycles of success and failure.

18 SECOE Goals 2001 Develop research data on Value of SE –Obtain data from informal and formal sources Foster collaborations –Continue to seek SECOE visibility in proposals Provide research information and connections –Maintain web site –99-01 Case Studies Database –Initiate The Research Connection part of web site Create annotated bibliographies –Provide central resource identifying SE textbooks Eric Honour, SECOE Leader

19 Many initiatives are ongoing on a world-wide basis to lead to wide acceptance of Systems Engineering as a formal discipline INCOSE has set strategic directions to influence and advance systems engineering through multiple means Progress has been made….there remains much to be accomplished D.H.
