INCOSE-LA Chapter Speaker Meeting: Systems Engineering at the Hello - Systems Engineering in Early Stage R&D Working Group

http://events.r20.constantcontact.com/register/event?oeidk=a07ej4v306l74d7499e&llr=l4ihvgeab

Topic: Systems Engineering at the Hello - Systems Engineering in Early Stage R&D Working Group

Speakers: Ann Hodges (ESEP, Working Group Chair) and Dr. Michael DiMario (Working Group Co-Chair)

    When:  Tuesday, June 14th 2022, 5:30 to 7:30 PM Pacific Daylight Time

    Cost:  Free Online Event

    Virtual Venue: Zoom meeting instructions will be emailed prior to the event and are included in your confirmation email message.  Slides will be available on the LA Chapter web site https://www.incose.org/los-angeles. We plan to record the event.

    Abstract: Early stage R&D (ESR&D) is one of the most crucial phases in the design process. It blends and blurs the lines between science and engineering. Systems engineering applied in a risk-based, graded approach supports credibility of research results and provides a foundation for further technology maturation. The ESR&D Working Group is striving to explore principles and frameworks that tailor systems engineering for this pivotal phase in the design process. This presentation summarizes activities of the Working Group, accomplishments, initial concepts on frameworks, and opportunities for involvement. 

    Biographies:

    Ann Hodges has worked over 45 years at Sandia National Lab and is a Distinguished Member of Technical Staff. She is a primary author of Sandia National Laboratories’ risk-informed graded approach to project management and product development/delivery, and served as the Mission Services Division’s systems engineering lead for the systems engineering part of the Project and Product Delivery System (PPDS) framework.

    Dr. Michael DiMario holds a PhD in Systems Engineering, MBA in Management of Technology, MS in Computer Engineering, and significant course work in Space Science. He co-chairs the INCOSE Early SE R&D WG. As a hobby note, he is an avid amateur astronomer and is acknowledged for a pre-discovery of Pluto.
