A better world through a systems approach

INCOSE Systems Exchange Café - Oak Tree Café


The next Oak Café discussion will be on Wednesday the 7th June at 0800 BST. All are welcome

The subject will be a discussion about how to adjust Systems Engineering practice when applying it in a small or medium enterprise

ISO15288 gives a large range of processes to apply (and does say it can be tailored), but not process (or guidance) to tailor it. There is ISo 29100 ("Systems and Software Engineering — Lifecycle Profiles for Very Small Entities)

What experience do you have tailoring SE?
Is it just the size of the organisation that dictates the need for tailoring?
How do you determine what is important / relevant / added value in any given situation?

Please come along and share your experience and opinions

If you are an INCOSE member, please preview the discussion material in more depth and contribute to the discussion (before or after the meeting) on the SME Topic Yammer post

 We look forward to your attendance and contribution to a hopefully lively discussion
