Introduction to Systems Engineering with Requirements Writing

Classroom or Online

Provides students with the knowledge and experience needed to recognise the benefit of applying sound systems engineering practices in their organisation.  Contains specialist requirements writing modules.

An Introduction to Systems Engineering with Requirements Writing

This two-day course has been designed to provide a high-level foundation to the principles and practices of systems engineering.  This course content is aligned with the International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE) Systems Engineering Handbook and provides an introduction and overview of the processes required for successful systems engineering delivery on projects.  Presented by a fully accredited, Certified Systems Engineering Professional (CSEP) instructor, the course examines the role and benefits of applying systems engineering principles within your organisation.  We teach students how to define systems engineering, understand the approach and scope and identify key systems engineering models.  The creation of accurate requirements, traceable across the systems engineering life cycle, is critical for successful projects, which is why we have designed specialist modules which provide students with the techniques necessary for the creation of clear, concise and correct requirements, independent of specific requirements management tools.  Best practice is drawn from the INCOSE handbook and the INCOSE guide for writing requirements.

What you will learn

  • A definition of systems engineering in accordance with the INCOSE Systems Engineering Handbook
  • An understanding of the systems engineering approach and scope
  • Key systems engineering models and details of each
  • How systems engineering methodology improves engineering programmes and how to apply these methods
  • The role of organisational stakeholders throughout the systems engineering life cycle, and the vital role each plays
  • The cost element of systems engineering.


    Specialist Requirements Writing Lessons include:


  • Principles of Requirements Writing
  • Requirements Concepts
  • The Analysis Process (Inputs, Controls, Outputs)
  • Requirement Process Activities
  • How to Carry out Requirements Analysis
  • Characteristics of Requirements Statements
  • Rules for Writing Requirements (Structure, Syntax, Statement Rules, Vocabulary)
  • Requirements review process
  • Baselining
  • Change Control
  • Use of the Requirements Management System and use of Artificial Intelligence
  • Storyboard Exercise and Examples
  • Case Histories.
