A Systems Engineering Practitioners’ Roadmap: from Brazil to Japan in the Aviation Industry

From a System Engineering practitioner’s perspective, Leandro Silvério will share some histories and comparisons between the Brazilian and Japanese aviation industry. Additionally, he will share information about his current academic project related to the development of a lean self-assessment framework to be deployed in an enterprise jeopardized by the lack of lean engagement. The framework objective is the improvement of the enterprise’s leanness level through the definition of a lean index to provide insights for decision-makers, as well as some guidelines for the managers to introduce recommended changes on their lean implementation journey. Moreover, he will provide some interesting and useful perceptions about similarities and differences from working in different countries with very different cultures.


Speaker: Leandro Silvério, PhD

Dr. Silvério is a System Engineer with 13+ years of practical experience in world distinguished projects with industry-leading Original Equipment Manufacturers, working closely with specialists in multidisciplinary teams for the "build to specification" development for the aircraft systems. Along with his professional and academic career, Silvério has developed a solid technical and managerial knowledge in the areas of design, testing, human factors, system integration, requirement engineering (V&V), safety reliability analysis, end-to-end environmental qualification, and tests coordination for aircraft complex systems. Moreover, a proven experience for lean implementation in AAA companies, with 3 published papers: "A roadmap for a leanness company to emerge as a true lean organization," DOI:; "Application phases for productivity improvement through lean methods assessments in an aeronautical company – case study," DOI: and "Performance measurement and improvement of lean manufacturing operations: a leanness assessment literature review for the product development industry," DOI:


Join Early:

Just as we would in a physical meeting, join us early and share a little about what you are working on or chat about systems engineering issues. The meeting link will open 30 minutes before the main meeting starts to allow some ‘social’ time and stay open a few minutes following for any extra discussion.
