C-NO Chapter Meeting June 2010
Presentation by Eric Honour
Systems engineering is believed to have high value in the development of complex systems, but until recently there has been little data to quantify that value. Now, Eric Honour is presenting the results of over a decade of research into the quantified value of SE. These major results, based on interviews with 51 programs, show the statistically proven relationships between systems engineering (SE) activities and the technical, schedule and cost success of programs. The results show that nearly all SE activities correlate with better project success, and provides detailed values that begin to answer how much is enough. Results also show, somewhat surprisingly, that current SE activities do not correlate with the technical quality of the product systems. You won’t want to miss this truly seminal information!
