3- and 4-day courses


Systems of Systems

Three days Click here for more information
Sound collaborative systems engineering processes to handle the challenges of complex systems of systems. Architectural design methods using patterns, heuristics, and the DODAF. Integration, collaboration, and T&E methods to work with evolutionary development of enterprises.
Course information (.pdf 167KB)


Technical Management Using a SEMP

Three days
Without a well-considered, documented, articulated plan, a system development effort can easily founder on the complexity of the many technical issues. This course introduces participants to the processes that support planning, development and execution of a SEMP. Includes both project planning and project execution, together known as technical management.

System Architecting with SysML

Three days
Learn SysML without getting lost in a tool. We demystify the System Model Language (SysML) of diagrams and information and show you how to apply it in your normal SE work, starting you on the path to Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE). Covers the entire set of SysML diagrams, teaching each diagram with lecture, instructor-led examples, then student group work. At the end of this class, you will be read to apply SysML in your work using whatever tool your company chooses.
Course information (.pdf 363KB)


Requirements Development & Management
Three days
Details on how to use requirements. Includes concepts of requirements as system definition, as configuration management, and as an engineering tool. Methods to determine the operational need, analyze missions, define functions, write requirements, analyze requirements, and allocate requirements. Includes frequent class exercises, including exercises in SysML and object-oriented analysis. Includes case study that carries through the major steps in defining and allocating requirements.

Fundamentals of Systems Engineering

Two days Click here for more information
The basics of creating successful systems, covering requirements, architecting, quality control and technical leadership. Practice the methods on a realistic system problem.
Course information (.pdf 69KB)


Systems Engineering for Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs)
Two days
This course is aimed at the SMEs who wish to explore what easy benefits they can get from systems engineering. It quickly describes the thought processes and then focuses on specific techniques that can be used immediately whether or not the SME buys in to the whole business of systems engineering. The focus is on practical exercises for those techniques, and on a self-selected case study to apply the techniques to a real-world problem.
Course information (.pdf 70KB)


Principles of Test & Evaluation
Two days Click here for more information
Overview of test and evaluation from product design through operation. Emphasis on application of T&E to complex system products. Covers types of testing and types of evaluation. Verification versus validation, with methods for each. Test requirements, test planning, integration testing, test conduct, data collection, analysis, and reporting. Aimed at the test engineer, design engineer, or system engineer who needs to know more about product proof.
