Don’t Panic! – The Absolute Beginner’s Guide to Model-Based Systems Engineering

This book was co-authored by Jon Holt and Simon Perry. Jon is an international award-winning author and public speaker, having written 12 books on MBSE and its applications. He is the current Technical Director of INCOSE UK as well as a Professor of Systems Engineering at Cranfield University, where he is involved with the teaching of, and research into, MBSE.

Simon holds Bachelor degrees from both the University of Leeds and the Open University and since gaining his degree in Mathematics in 1986, he has spent 30 years working in all aspects of software and systems engineering. He often speaks at Systems Engineering conferences and is the author of six books on Systems Engineering and related topics.

‘It’s too complicated’, ‘I don’t have the time’, ‘I can’t change the way that we have always worked’, ‘my project has already started’ and ‘my staff won’t understand it’ are just some of the many reasons given for why people won’t even consider, let alone implement, Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE).

This initial hurdle of engaging with the Systems Engineering and wider communities without them running for the hills in abstract fear is one of the biggest problems that faces MBSE practitioners.

This book is our response. It aims to provide an honest, straightforward and simple introduction to the world of MBSE that almost anyone can understand.

Think Engineer - A Book for Key Stage 2

‘Think Engineer’ is a new children’s book that is designed to promote STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) and in particular engineering to school children. The book was launched in November 2015 and is published by INCOSE UK.

The book is aimed at Key Stage 2 pupils (ages 7-11), and their parents and teachers to raise the awareness of engineering.

The book is written by Jon Holt (author of ten books on Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) and current Technical Director of INCOSE UK) and is beautifully illustrated by renowned artist Ian Simmons.

The book is written in simple rhymes and tells the story of two children, one of whom is considering her options at school. She is frustrated by the options that she faces but, never fear, the Engineer in the Hat is here! Join the Engineer in the Hat for a roller-coaster journey through engineering – “Engineering, we know, will not leave you snoring!” Any resemblance to actual persons, living or dead, is purely intentional.

Please allow up to 28 days for delivery as the books are printed on demand. However we will aim to get your book to you within a week of ordering.

Guidance in the Interpretation of UK-SPEC When Applying for Professional Registration as a Systems Engineer

This guidance document is intended for systems engineers who are considering and preparing themselves for professional registration with the Engineering Council in the UK, according to the UK Standard for Professional

Engineering Competence (UK-SPEC). Specifically, it aims to help systems engineers understand how to describe their Systems Engineering experience in a manner best suited to the professional review process.

As well as mapping SE competencies to the various sections of the UK-SPEC, the guidance also offers advice on the appropriate level of registration for systems engineers, based on their education level and experience.

This guidance has been written by experienced professionally registered systems engineers who hold chartered status and are familiar with UK-SPEC, including some who have personal experience of achieving CEng via the INCOSE UK scheme.

SE Competency Framework PDF

Systems Engineering Competency Framework:

Issue 3 of the Systems Engineering Competency Framework and Annex A Guide to Competency Evaluation now been completed.

The Systems Engineering Competency Framework was developed 'to have a measurable set of competencies for Systems Engineering which will achieve national recognition and will be useful to the enterprises represented by the INCOSE UK Advisory Board'.

It provides a common language with which to describe and discuss the competencies that are required to conduct good Systems Engineering.

The hardcopy has been split into two colour-coded parts, The first being the framework itself, and the second being the Annex A Guide to Competency Evaluation Issue 2.

The colour-coding provides a quick easy way to cross-reference different areas of the Framework with the Annex.

Capability Systems Engineering Guide

This document has been produced by the INCOSE UK Capability Working Group (CWG) to provide some high level guidance in the Systems Engineering of complex capabilities. This document is based upon practice from a range of sectors, including rail, defence and information services.

Capabilities are different from Products. Capabilities are realised through a combination of people, processes, information as well as equipment. The Capability Working Group found Capability Systems Engineering in a range of different industries, often with different language, but the same underlying challenges, mind-set and methods. In Defence it is called Through Life Capability Management, and sometimes System of Systems Engineering. In Rail it is called Whole Systems Engineering. In Information Services it is called Enterprise Architecting or Service Design.

This guide builds on:

  • UK Defence practice in Through Life Capability Management and GB Rail practice in Whole Systems Approach
  • Key national and international standards in Asset Management (PAS 55), IT service management (ISO 20000) and programme management (Managing Successful Programmes™)
  • Systems Engineering work done by Hitchins, Kemp, Mollett, Ring, Sillitto, Dogan and Daw

Some readers of this guide will see Capability Systems Engineering as something radically new. Others will see it as ‘plain old Systems Engineering’. This guide does not explore this debate. Rather it describes what good Capability Systems Engineering looks like, and provides tips for capability systems engineers.
