    Complex Aerospace Systems Exchange

    Complex Aerospace Systems Exchange

    Complex Aerospace Systems Exchange (CASE) will participate under the AIAA Aviation and Aeronautics Forum 2013 (AVIATION 2013). If you've presented at CASE in the past, you'll want to make sure to participate in AVIATION 2013.

    Systems engineering in aviation is an interdisciplinary field of engineering focusing on how complex engineering projects should be designed and managed over their life cycles. Issues such as reliability, logistics, coordination of different teams (requirement management), evaluation measurements and different disciplines become more difficult when dealing with large, complex projects. Systems engineering deals with work-processes, optimization methods and tools to manage risks in such projects, and it overlaps with both technical and human-centered disciplines such as control engineering, industrial engineering, organizational studies, and project management. Systems engineering ensures all likely aspects of a project or system have been considered and integrated into a whole. 

    Call for Presentations – Deadline: 1 March 2013

    With a greater emphasis on information and idea exchange and practical application for complex systems programs, paper publications are not required. Presentations are solicited that provide attendees with new concepts and insights to improve their execution of:  

    Complex Systems Development
    Integration, Test, and Verification of Complex Systems
    Program Management to Achieve Robust and Resilient Systems

    Presentation proposals are due 1 March 2013. Content should address current problems challenges associated with the development, integration, management, and support of complex aerospace systems that lead to:

    • Late Identification of Systems Failures 
    • Schedule Delays 
    • Cost Overruns 
    • Unintended Consequences 

    Presentations should leverage real-world examples to identify and explore:

    • Best Practices 
    • Lessons Learned 
    • Systemic Issues and Limitations of Current Tools and Techniques 
    • New Insights, Capabilities, or Methods 
    • Unresolved Issues or Obstacles – Opportunities for Further Work 

    Potential presenters are invited to submit a summary (300 words) and outline (250 words) of their proposed presentation by 1 March 2013 to
