Systems Engineering Foundation
Duration – 2 days
Lessons 1 and 2
Lessons 1 and 2 explore what we mean when we say ‘systems engineering’ and examine the major principles. Lesson 1 examines through-life processes. Key topics covered within Lesson 1 include user requirements, validation and verification, configuration control and design processes. For Lesson 2, we look further at the through-life process and cover topics such as characteristics, decision gates, life cycle stages, life cycle comparisons, life cycle approaches, storyboard exercises and examples.
Lessons 3 and 4
Lesson 3 focuses on the pivotal role of requirements analysis, capture and management. During the lesson, we examine the concept plus the analysis process including input, controls and outputs.
Other key topics include requirements process activities, how to carry out requirements analysis, characteristics of requirements statements, rules for writing requirements, requirements vocabulary and the use of requirements management systems.
Lesson 4 explores configuration management, change management and configuration control. Key topics include configuration management processes, baselines, change requests, configuration control, change control, configuration status and accounting.
The final lesson of the course explores test and acceptance procedures including test categories, validation and verification, test cases and test scripts.
