Upcoming Chapter Events
Chapter Meeting - May 14
Presenter: Dr. Long S Dong
You have been given a task to performance an AOA and down-select a list of the alternatives. Supposed that you are performing an assessment of total program Cost, Schedule, Technical performance risk, and maturity of the responsible organizations; and the results will be used to down select viable alternatives for the system objectives. What processes would you use? How would you integrate systems architecting, systems engineering, design, integration, program management, and other engineering processes to ensure the system objectives will be met?
This presentation will provide an overview of what it takes to successfully assembling a program in consideration of those processes; and a Part II of the Affordability Maturity Assessment Methodology – How to Apply It.
Bio: Long Dong has a PhD in Systems Engineering from Southern Methodist University (SMU). He conducts research in systems engineering with focuses in systems design maturity assessment, systems engineering capabilities maturity, program management and systems affordability and systems effectiveness. He has a Bachelor degree in Electronics Engineering and Technology, Master of Business Administration (MBA), and a Master of Science in Systems Engineering from SMU. He has worked at Lockheed Martin Aeronautics for 17 years. He served as Technical Development Vice President of INCOSE, North Texas Chapter in 2016.
INCOSE SEP Exam
The North Texas Chapter will probably host the next exam May 22nd in Allen, Tx.

Chapter Meeting - August 13
TBD Application of MBSE in AGILE Development
TBD Presenter: Jason Forth, NAVAIR
TBD Abstract: NAVAIR’s latest program goal is to deploy, integrate, and sustain significant interoperable technology upgrades to increase the mission profile of the aircraft system in the coming years. The Northrop Grumman MBSE Agile Team has been establishing a system model for the as is product baseline, to be designed baseline, and the processes for each technical discipline with modeling approaches to transition into a digital technical baseline for the program. In the last two releases, the team has been developing modeling approach activity diagrams and style guide diagrams within the architecture modeling application, CAMEO Enterprise Architect®, to meet the Systems Engineering Modeling and Architecture Plan (SEMAP). The approach diagram provides each sprint team the “tasks, work products, and flow” to complete each type of modeling domain (e.g. behavioral) while the style guide diagrams are unique example diagrams with aligning requirements for each definition and usage of objects compliant with UAF and best practices from industry following Object-Oriented System Engineering Methodology (OOSEM). The team is also extending current NAVAIR profiles like classification of each element and view while developing new profiles for data rights and approval. Other MBSE efforts in the corporate portfolio will be able to leverage these style guides, approach diagrams, and profiles to establish system modeling methods for applying system engineering models to streamline digital technical reviews, submit digital deliverables, and increase technical competencies integration into generating their modeling approaches within the broader system model.
Bio: Jason Forth is a Senior Systems Engineering Architect for the Naval Air Warfare Center – Aircraft Division (NAWCAD, or simply NAVAIR) stationed in Patuxent River, MD. He holds a BS in Aerospace Engineering from Syracuse University, and a Masters of Engineering in Systems Engineering from the Stevens Institute of Technology, with graduate certificates in System of Systems and System Architecture. Jason has extensive experience on both the OEM contractor and government sides of acquisition, with particular experience in Cybersecurity, as well as System and SW Safety, that he brings to his role as a Systems Engineering Architect. He is currently assigned to the System Engineering Transformation (SET) initiative at NAVAIR, serving as a lead SE Architect for various pilot program efforts the command has identified.
