A better world through a systems approach

The Systems Engineering Vision 2035 is intended to inspire and guide the strategic direction of systems engineering for the global systems community. This community includes leaders of organizations, practitioners, and students, and others serving this community that includes educators, researchers, professional organizations, standards bodies, and tool vendors. It is intended to apply to a broad range of application domains including biomedical, defense, healthcare, power and energy, telecommunications, transportation, and many others.

This vision can be used to develop strategies to evolve the systems engineering capability of an enterprise or project. The vision can also be used to help direct investments and support collaborative efforts to advance the discipline and grow the skill base to meet current and future challenges related to systems development. The reader will also gain insights on trends that impact enterprise competitiveness and how systems engineering will respond to these trends, which include the digital transformation, sustainability, smart systems and complexity growth, and advancements in modeling, simulation, and visualization.
