Future of Systems Engineering (FuSE)

Vision: Inspire the global community to realize the SE Vision

The FuSE Program is organized in 4 streams.


Vision & Roadmaps

The Systems Engineering Vision and Roadmaps stream continuously refines, evolves, and complements the SE Vision 2035. Furthermore, the Vision and Roadmaps stream creates an integrated set of roadmaps across the four FuSE streams. The streams are interrelated and concurrently guide and influence each other. The intermediate stream goal is to frame the structural relationships and value models to support the roadmaps creation.



The SE Foundations stream has its basis in both theory and industrial practice. The intermediate stream goal is to assess the adequacy of the foundations and identify gaps to determine future directions. Special consideration will be given to the theoretical foundation of the SE as a discipline on one hand and the practical application foundations using principles and heuristics on the other hand.



The SE Methodologies stream guides the advancement of practices, methods, and tools for engineering systems to be fit for purpose at the scale, interrelatedness, complexity, non-determinism, and emerging technology innovations such as AI and agility. The intermediate stream goal is to assess the adequacy of current INCOSE technical products, ongoing FuSE projects in this stream, and identify gaps.


Application Extensions

The SE Application Extensions stream integrates social sciences, soft systems, as well as initiatives such as Smart Cities to address grand challenges to meet human and societal needs as stated in the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. The intermediate stream goal is to frame the value model to justify systems engineering’s role at the policy table for these grand challenges.
