|Collaboration - Smart Cities Initiative WG
||Since its establishment, the Smart Cities Initiative has been conscientiously collaborating. Its scope encompasses nearly every aspect of INCOSE resources. Internal collaboration occurs through shared resources and knowledge, collaboration at IW, and team member participation. It involves the MBSE, Architecture, Social Systems, CIPR, System of Systems, Infrastructure and Transportation WGs, as well as many local chapters. External partners include the IEC (Category A Liaison), the European Technology Chamber (EUTEC), and the cities of Ulaanbaatar (Mongolia), Monterey (Cal., USA), and Kansas City (Mo., USA). Presentations were made to the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP), and to the Systems Engineering Society of Australia.
|Outreach - Requirements WG
||The primary goal of the RWG is to expand and promote the body of knowledge of needs and requirements and their benefits within the Systems Engineering (SE) community. The RWG has developed, published, and maintained multiple products that are available to members and non-members across the globe, such as the Guide to Writing Requirements, translated into multiple languages, and the “Needs and Requirements” (NRM), accepted by Wiley for publication. The public facing webpage, RWG Exchange Cafes, YouTube channel, and pre-IW sessions promote INCOSE and demonstrate the value of individual practitioners of SE and organizations of becoming part of the INCOSE community. The RWG outreach activities have and continue to make a significant contribution to the development of INCOSE in all domains across the globe.
|Achieving the SE Vision - Digital Engineering Information Exchange WG
||The DEIXWG has been extremely active in contributing to achievement of the SE Vision 2035 via its efforts to develop an ISO-standardized ontological framework and lexicon for specifying model-based digital artifacts and digital views exchanged between stakeholders across heterogeneous digital engineering ecosystems. Their contributions have moved the community closer to achieving the goals of the “Practices” and “Tools and Environments” areas of the SE Vision 2035 Roadmap. After developing the Digital Viewpoint Model (DVM) ontology and accompanying tutorial sessions and workshop examples, the DEIXWG is actively working with ISO/IEC AHG6/SC7 to standardize a lexicon of DE concepts and terminology via collaboration across the Industry, Government, and Academic organizations.
|Sustained Performance - Israeli Human Systems Integration (HSI) WG
||The Israeli HSI Working Group was founded in 2016 as a result of an initiative of seasoned Israeli Systems Engineers (SE) and Human Factors Engineers (HFE), with the leadership and guidance of Prof. Guy Boy. Since its creation, it has developed a methodology for integrating HFE activities into SE processes and has disseminated around Israel principles for the successful integration of HFE. It has also integrated advanced technologies from the Industry 4.0 domain, and initiated HSI and MBSE in various articles and presentations. On the international stage, the Israeli Human Systems Integration Working Group co-led the 2020 international HSI Workshop with Prof. Guy Boy, is a contributor to the HSI chapter in SE Handbook, the HSI PRIMER, and is a board member of the international HSI WG.
|Product of the Year - SE Vision 2035 Team
||For developing and publishing the Systems Engineering Vision 2035 which is offered as a community service from the International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE). This vision serves as an inspiration to engineers, policy makers, and other professionals as a valuable reference in the formation and direction of their future paths and strategies.
|Product of the Year - Requirements WG
||For developing and publishing the Needs and Requirements Manual as a flagship product along with three companion publications (Guide to Needs and Requirements, Guide to Verification and Validation, and Guide to Writing Requirements) that as a set provide practical guidance on systems engineering lifecycle concepts and activities.
