“Systems Engineering: Adding Value in Challenging Times”

We live in challenging times - budgets are shrinking, and customers are increasingly looking for value-for-money solutions, with the added complication of a perceived shortage of systems engineers across many industry sectors.

These are the challenges that Systems Engineering needs to address:
* driving down costs by effectively managing uncertainty on projects
* developing novel solutions that address the actual stakeholder problems
* promoting a systems approach as the cornerstone of good engineering practice

INCOSE UK invites you to attend ASEC 2010 and share your views on how the Systems Engineering community can move things forward.

ASEC 2010’s new format offers a mixture of keynote speakers representing the challenges of our increasingly “Systems World”, paper presentations giving an insight into some of the real world situations where INCOSE UK members are adding value, invited speaker sessions highlighting the best of the technical activities of INCOSE UK, workshops to allow smaller groups to look at a topic in detail and finally tutorials providing opportunities to learn more about Systems Engineering techniques and approaches.

This year’s theme considers the value of Systems Engineering in ‘Challenging Times’. The ‘Value’ of Systems Engineering in this context includes:
* Applying a Systems Approach to complex real world ‘System of Systems’ problems. Our first keynote speaker, Professor Brian Collins - Chief Scientific Adviser,
Department for Transport, will talk about the challenges of an integrated approach to ground transport, rail and infrastructure. We will also consider the challenges of dealing with System of Systems properties such as Safety and Resilience.

* How to get the most value out of Systems Engineering in engineering or service delivery organisations. Our second keynote speaker, Peter Price - Director of Engineering and Technology (Civil Aerospace) at Rolls-Royce, will talk about the role of Systems Engineering within his organisation. We will also have sessions on Systems Engineering skills, competencies and case studies from across the INCOSE community.

* Getting the most value from specific Systems Engineering activities. This will include the work of some of the INCOSE UK technical working groups, together with detailed workshops and tutorials. These will be complemented by an exhibition of Systems Engineering suppliers, tool vendors and specialist consultancies.

Further information can be found at on the INCOSE UK Chapter’s website and a detail of the presentations and workshops is in the accompanying brochure.
