A better world through a systems approach

Webinar ShowcaseINCOSE-Webinar-Showcase
- part of INCOSE’s Virtual Community Offerings

As a part of the INCOSE Virtual Community offerings we are showcasing select webinars on a range of Systems Engineering topics.

For the INCOSE Webinar Showcase we have selected several webinars for your viewing and then discussion with fellow Systems Engineers and Thinkers.

This week we showcased Family of Systems Disciplines by Zane Scott, originally presented on 20th November 2013. 
There are a variety of systems disciplines all of which employ the concept of systems as a set of component elements related to each other and operating in ways that are determined by the relationships. This affords a system functionality beyond even the sum of the functionality offered by the component elements. What the various systems disciplines offer to each other is the variety of perspectives and approaches that those disciplines bring to the study and design of systems. Each discipline provides some unique way or ways of approaching systems problems and each one can profit by the contributions of the others. From dealing with complexity to thinking about emerging behaviors the disciplines can shine their lights beyond their traditional domains. This webinar explores some of those differences and suggests ways in which the disciplines can intersect opening new solutions and new market spaces for each other.
Zane has refreshed this material for the recent presentation, and the recorded content is now available to INCOSE members at

Next week will feature Randall C. Iliff, Eric S. Rebentisch and Stephen Townsend on 
Three Years Later – Building the Mindset for PM / SE Integration
PMandSE160Many changes have occurred during the three years since the publication of the groundbreaking book, Integrating Program Management and Systems Engineering.
This session will explore these and other ways in which the organizations continue to build the “New Mindset” required for success on today’s engineering program challenges. Every System Engineer knows how critical the relationship with Program Management can be, and too few of us have experienced the magic that occurs when PM and SE are in sync throughout a project.
This is a rich topic that will benefit from dialog and discussion. To better serve the INCOSE community the presentation will be conducted twice on Thursday 15th June, once at 11 AM Eastern Time and again at 8 PM Eastern Time. There will also be a live discussion following the close of the LinkedIn discussion period.  Be sure to bring your questions and share your experiences during the interactive sessions!

Previous showcased webinars were:

Agile Systems and Processes, by Rick Dove.  Agile-Webinar-imageThis webinar addresses how to consider agile outside of software development. Agile systems engineering is about learning and applying that learning continuously to work-in-process – with the objective of minimizing rework. Agile software development relies on short-cycle development iterations to accomplish this learn-as-you-go affordably. Agile mixed-discipline development can’t keep pace with software’s short cycle iterations, has cross-discipline integration issues that are typically late in discovery, and attempts to synchronize multiple suppliers over long-cycle integration and test events.
The webinar is available through the INCOSE LinkedIn page:  

Feature-base Product Line Engineering, by Paul Clement.  PLE-Webinar-imageThis webinar describes Feature-based Product Line Engineering (PLE) as a game-changing paradigm for addressing systems engineering complexity by dramatically simplifying the creation, delivery, maintenance, operation, and evolution of a product line portfolio.

webinar4  Bridging the Gulf of Execution presented by Thomas McDermott, Jr, Sunil Bharitkar, and Christopher Nemeth.  Ajoint presentation from INCOSE, the IEEE Systems, Man, and Cybernetics Society (SMCS) that discussed the gulf of execution that blocks research findings from being realized in the development phase of many projects continuing to bog down R&D.

We hope you find these webinars interesting, and contribute questions, debate, and reaction to the issues posed in each in the LinkedIn discussion threads.

INCOSE will continue to showcase additional webinars on a regular basis - check back here for the next in the series.
