Working Group Purpose & Mission


The Infrastructure Working Group Charter is to bring together designers, builders, operators and owners of economic and physical infrastructure systems to advance the application of systems engineering.

This Working Group aligns with the strategic aim of INCOSE to advance the application of systems engineering outside its core aerospace and defense domain.

This Working Group will address mostly physical infrastructure issues with a concentration on the construction of infrastructure facilities in the energy, transportation and, and communications domains. This includes public and commercial facilities and networks necessary for the economic and physical well being of society (e.g., power generation and distribution, waterways and ports, industrial plants, telecommunication networks, transportation facilities and systems, and mining).

The Working Group will leverage international systems engineering best practices and produce documents to assist developers and builders of infrastructure systems.

This Working Group will collaborate with other domain specific Working Groups such as the Transportation Working Group, the Power and Energy Systems Working Group, the Automotive Working Group, Critical infrastructure Working Group, Smart Cities Initiative, and the Resilience Systems Working Group.

International Workshop Focus

INCOSE has identified that engagement of members needs attention.

Infrastructure and related WG had a multi WG meeting to discuss the possibilities of coördination of activities and closer collaboration:

  • Transportation and Infrastructure planned to have joint bi-monthly webinars.
  • Risk Management WG supports our Apllication Guide product
  • Develop and review text for technical section  in the Application Guide


Planned Activities

  • Monthly Meetings: Every 3rd Thursday of the month. Time 8 pm (UTC)
  • IS-2024 preparation for working sessions and review sessions for Application Guide

Planned Work Products

  • Application Guide for large infrastructural works (TPP-2021-126) -  2025
