INCOSE UK Chapter Training Day, 7th June 2017

Training day presentation

Overview of the Training Day

INCOSE UK is offering five one-day courses for the 2017 Training Day. These will all run simultaneously from 9am - 4pm on Wednesday 7th June 2017. All of these provide an opportunity to update or extend your Systems Engineering (SE) skills, under the guidance of acknowledged experts in the application of SE.

This year's Training Day also offers the opportunity for any current or potential SEP programme candidates to sit their examination on-site at Engineers' House


Training Course 1 - Product and System Test and Evaluation Essentials (PASTEE) for Systems Engineers

Ian Presland presents a course in 'Product and Systems Test and Evaluation (PASTEE)', a subject that can sometimes be overlooked within the plethora of 'standard' courses for systems engineers. The principal aim of this course is to equip delegates with core knowledge in PASTEE planning and execution activities, processes and techniques.

Training Course 2 - A Systems Approach to Requirements

Stuart Burge returns this year to provide a fresh look at requirements from a systems viewpoint. Of all the topics in Systems Engineering, requirements and what to do with them is the cause of endless debate and argument - this course aims to allay this by using two requirements models to explain.

Training Course 3 - Understanding and Applying NAF (NATO Architecture Framework) Version 4.0

This course is presented by Tom Riley and Kevin Galvin and is intended to give delegates a description of the rationale behind NAF V4.0, its relationship to NAF V3.0 and MODAF, its key components and an overview of the new features of NAF V4.0, including the new methodology (based on the TOGAF ADM) and the 'palette' of views.

Training Course 4 - ISO 16355 - Redefining QFD To Transform High-Value Systems Engineering


Training Course 5 - Don't Panic! The Absolute Beginner's Introduction to Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE)

Scarecrow Consultants are pleased to be returning for this year's Training Day, with Simon Perry and Rob Behan presenting a one-day tutorial to coincide with the launch of their latest book 'Don't Panic! The Absolute Beginner's Guide to Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE)', published by INCOSE UK. This course is aimed at the complete novice to the world of MBSE.

Training Course 6 - The System Engineering of Interfaces

This year's course on interfaces will be presented by Hazel Woodcock. The aim of this interactive tutorial is to give participants an insight into best practices when dealing with system interfaces, as every interface is an opportunity to lose information, control and/or money. This tutorial will explore some of the common pitfalls and solutions, and offer patterns for describing interfaces, ultimately equipping delegates with some practical methods for improving their management of interfaces.

SEP Examination
