International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE) and SAE International Announce MOU to Collaborate on, Promote Field of Systems Engineering

SAN DIEGO – Nov. 6, 2018 – The International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE), the largest organization in the world dedicated to systems engineering, has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with SAE International, a nonprofit and knowledge source for the engineering profession, to jointly collaborate and participate within the global engineering community.

The MOU between INCOSE and SAE International formalizes the partnership between the two organizations to work on common projects and challenges, including the development and promotion of best practices and guidance, along with training and materials that can support projects and organizations in the field of systems engineering throughout the world.

According to INCOSE President Garry Roedler, INCOSE and SAE International have a mutual commitment to improving the state of systems engineering practices.

“Collaborating will help us achieve our shared goals, and bring the systems engineering community closer together as we continue to promote this important work,” said Roedler.

The scope of the partnership will focus on collaboration via joint event promotion, working groups, product development and webinars, as well as professional development via tutorials, videos and more. INCOSE will also include a representative from SAE on the core team of its Future of Systems Engineering (FuSE) Initiative, a forward thinking, multi-organization program.

“By joining efforts, INCOSE and SAE will facilitate the exchange and development of knowledge and best practices, with an eye on comprehensive integration into the production, operation and support of successful engineering systems,” said Frank Menchaca, Chief Product Officer, SAE International. “We look forward to collaborating closely in the years to come, with a focus on advancing the field of systems engineering – which plays a vital role in the evolution of global technology and innovation."
