PPI to Share Access to Systems Engineering Goldmine with INCOSE Members via INCOSE Website

SAN DIEGO – September 7, 2018 – The International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE), the largest organization in the world dedicated to systems engineering, signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Project Performance International (PPI), an Australian-headquartered corporation using systems engineering to improve client performance.

The MOU between INCOSE and PPI formalizes the partnership between the two parties as they develop and operate the Systems Engineering Tools Database, an online library of systems engineering software tools to support engineering and business processes. INCOSE and PPI’s partnership also includes the sharing of PPI’s Systems Engineering Goldmine, a resource of over 4GB of systems engineering documents and a searchable database of definitions of more than 7,800 terms used in systems engineering. The collaboration also embraces the delivery of an educational seminar series for infrastructure professionals.

INCOSE and PPI have a mutual commitment to improving the state of systems engineering practice. These projects help us to achieve our shared goal and to bring the systems engineering community closer together as we continue to innovate,” said Garry Roedler, president of INCOSE.

The joint development of the Systems Engineering Tools Database will be hosted on an INCOSE server linked to the INCOSE and PPI websites, and will provide current and future members of INCOSE and clients of PPI with data on systems engineering software tools.

“This collaboration between PPI and INCOSE is another step towards PPI's vision of all engineers worldwide practicing systems engineering, as the way that engineering is done. We at PPI look forward with excitement to working more closely with INCOSE in the future, to the benefit of humankind," said PPI’s Managing Director Mr. Robert Halligan.
