EGMT 688: Systems Engineering Analysis
Instructor: Walter Sobkiw
Description: Description: Introduces multiple System Engineering Analysis practices used to execute systems engineering processes. Provides foundation to execute, monitor, and manage the traditional practices and also develops ability to modify and establish new practices based on this massive foundation. Instills confidence so student can contribute, lead, monitor, or manage any systems effort. It is this exposure to the breadth and depth of what is available that will make the student a true leader in the field. There is an emphasis on Sustainability in the course and the topics are:
Stakeholders, functions, performance, operations, threads, formal practices, state machines, interfaces, human factors, reliability, maintainability, availability, safety, fault tolerance, security, modeling, simulation, prototypes
Technology assessment, analysis and specifications, traceability, architectures, tradeoffs, decision making, system requirement databases
Maintenance, training, integrated logistics support, quality, configuration management, integration test verification validation
Reviews and audits, planning and tracking progress, earned value management
Requests for proposals, procuring, statements of work, proposals, business plans
Systems practices for sustainability
This course is for new systems engineering managers, new technical directors, current systems engineers, engineers with expanding roles outside their engineering specialty, engineers wanting to enter systems engineering, engineers wanting to enter systems engineering management. The industries include healthcare, communications, aerospace, defense, government, automobile, transportation (air traffic control and rail), financial, energy, alternative transportation, alternative energy, etc.
