  • Workshop on The Application of Transformational Thinking to the Global Water Energy Nexus

    Date | Aug 14, 2015
    The INCOSE Colorado Front Range Chapter is hosting a 3-day workshop on the use of Transformational Systems Engineering (TSE) techniques to address one of the most important issues of our time, the Global Water Energy Nexus (GWEN). This workshop is a follow up to the March 2015 TSE Tutorial held at the Colorado School of Mines.

    The complex interdependencies between the generation and consumption of our energy and water resources display all the characteristics of a “wicked problem”. With current trends toward more water-intensive energy (e.g. biofuels, unconventional oil and gas production, and increasing water consumption for thermoelectric power) and more energy-intensive water (e.g. desalination, water treatment, or deeper ground water pumping and production), classical systems engineering techniques for implementing rigorous, disciplined, interdependent solutions starts to break down.  Our challenge, from a Systems Engineering perspective, is to apply TSE tools and best practices to GWEN.

  • Opportunity to Participate in PMI-INCOSE Alliance Book Project

    Date | Aug 07, 2015
    During the recently concluded INCOSE IS 2015, The PMI-INCOSE Alliance announced that they are working on a Book project to codify best practices bridging the gap between Project Managers and Systems Engineers.  The leadership of the alliance is still looking for contributors to this effort.  If you have the expertise and the desire to contribute to this effort, please contact Dr. Eric Rebentisch at or (617) 258-7773 if you are interested.  The deadline for expressing interest in contributing to this effort is August 31st 2015 at the latest (prefer to hear from interested parties by Mid August).

    This book will be the first in a series of efforts to share best practices on bridging the gap between Program Management and Systems Engineering so if you have case studies to share or expertise in this regards, please contact Dr. Rebentisch.
