Chapter Overview 12 March 2009 North Star Chapter Spring Tutorial Identifies the elements and benefits of a complete, proven system engineering process Demonstrates its applicability and contribution towards project success using vignettes from sample Systems and System of Systems (SoS) applications. Illustrates, using examples from Vitechs CORE systems engineering tool, how the model-based system engineering process supports both document-driven and model- based paradigms for milestone reviews; and also top-down, middle-out, or reverse engineering environments. Discusses how to know when each element of the process has been completed, and how to develop and validate functional and physical architectures using executable architectures.

Chapter Overview 12 March 2009 North Star Chapter Importance of SE to Emerging New Engineers Why SE?
Chapter Overview 12 March 2009 North Star Chapter What is a System? This definition implies that: All parts are necessary & They need to be linked for the system to work It does not require parts to be physical. A system is a whole that functions as a whole by virtue of the interaction of its parts.
Chapter Overview 12 March 2009 North Star Chapter What is Systems Engineering? Systems Engineering is an interdisciplinary approach and means to enable the realization of successful systems. It focuses on defining customer needs and required functionality early in the development cycle, documenting requirements, then proceeding with design synthesis and system validation while considering the complete problem.
Chapter Overview 12 March 2009 North Star Chapter All Encompassing Definition Systems engineering is the glue that holds all components of a solution together in a successful whole.
Chapter Overview 12 March 2009 North Star Chapter What are those Components? Manufacturing Software Safety Human Factors Reliability Maintainability Logistics Support Training Disposability Environment Electronics Structure Materials Durability Architecture Cost Schedule Availability Etc.
Chapter Overview 8 May 2008 North Star Chapter Who Cares? System advocate or proponent System shareholder System owner System user(s) System architect System acquirer System developer Services provider Independent Test Agency System administrator Mission planner System analyst System support System maintenance System instructor System critic System competitor System adversary Etc.

Chapter Overview 12 March 2009 North Star Chapter International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE) INCOSE is a not-for-profit membership organization founded in Its mission is to advance the state of the art and practice of systems engineering in industry, academia, and government by promoting interdisciplinary, scalable approaches to produce technologically appropriate solutions that meet societal needs. International Activities: –2009 International Symposium, July 19-23, 2009, in Singapore –2010 International Symposium – Summer 2009 in Chicago
Chapter Overview 8 May 2008 North Star Chapter Chapter Overview 12 March 2009 Bill Waite Bill Waite holds a B.S. and M.S. in Technology Education with an emphasis in engineering from the University of Wisconsin, Stout, and an Ed.S. from the University of St. Thomas in Educational Leadership and Administration. Prior to joining the teaching staff at Wayzata High School in the fall of 2006, he taught a variety of engineering related courses at Richfield High School for 5 years. Bill currently teaches Principles of Engineering (POE) and Civil Engineering and Architecture (CEA). Under his guidance, 72% of POE students and 70% of CEA students earned college credit during first semester which will be applied to their future engineering undergraduate degree.
