Chapter Meeting & Installation of New Chapter Officers

Happy New Year, INCOSE Space Coast Chapter members and guests.  We invite you to kick off our INCOSE 2018 calendar by attending our traditional New Year event at The Sanctuary Clubhouse in Indialantic (see directions below).  The evening’s program will feature wine & sodas & food, including the installation of Chapter officers for 2018.  Please join us to help celebrate a successful program over the past year and assist the Chapter in making 2018 even better in terms of meeting your needs and interests.  Spouses and friends are especially welcome at this informal get together, but please email your attendance plans so we can arrange for sufficient catering.

About the Presentation: Shaping the Future of Systems Engineering and INCOSE

Look around us and what do you see regarding the systems of today? It is hard to find a relevant system that is a stand-alone system, not interconnected to other systems or interacting in some significant way with other systems. And the increases in the functionality of our systems, as well as the level of technology adoption, has continued to outpace our practices to fully harness the technology and technically manage the Systems and Systems of Systems to our greatest advantage.  The state of the practice in systems engineering continues to modernize and grow in many areas, with substantial progress in areas such as standards, tools, models, processes, SE competencies, technical management, and measurement. These are necessary, but not wholly sufficient, to meet the needs of tomorrow’s accomplishments. We all must be leaders to inspire and guide an effective evolution of systems engineering across diverse stakeholder communities.

We are very pleased to welcome Garry Roedler, the incoming INCOSE President, to describe a vision for the future of systems engineering and how INCOSE is aligning its resources to support those goals.

His presentation will look at our current situation and how our environment has changed, providing an understanding of the challenges we are facing with some examples using specific technology areas.  It will look at some of the work in process to advance our processes, practices, and performance of Systems Engineering towards addressing those challenges.
