    Course Overview

    Systems Engineering Fundamentals


    In today’s globalized environment, manufacturing and designing companies compete for business. To be successful, companies need to practice strategies that minimize the possibility of degradation of product quality, cost overrun, schedule slippage, customer dissatisfaction and system development failures. In this course you will learn why do we need systems engineering, the systems engineering fundamentals including Requirements Analysis and Development, Functional Analysis and Allocation, Design Decision Analysis based on requirements; Risk Management throughout the development and design cycle; Integrated Master Plan/Integrated Master Schedule and Work Breakdown Structure for development and design management; Technical Performance Measurement for measuring, tracking and validating design; Interface Management across in-house disciplines, supplier, and customer; and Verification and Validation to prove the right system was built and the system was built right.

    Key Topics:

    • Requirements Development And Management
    • Functional Analysis And Allocation
    • Risk, Opportunity and Issue Management
    • Decision Analysis
    • Work Breakdown Structure and Integrated Master Plan/Schedule
    • Interface Management and verification and validation
