Meeting Flyer


  Emerging needs…rapidly changing requirements… dynamic environments…ever-increasing connectivity…evolutionary and revolutionary technologies…budget crises…shrinking schedules. The practice and profession of systems engineering emerged from the development of large, stand-alone, single purpose systems. Today we face an ever-shifting landscape and operate across a wide range of size, cost, and product lifespan. As technologies continue to advance and dynamic complexity grows, what role does systems engineering place in solving problems today and tomorrow? How do we adjust and evolve our practice to deliver greater value in turbulent times?
