Future of SE

Presenter: Jon Clauss

Abstract: Mr. Clauss will present Gary Roedler's presentation on the Future of SE. Look around us and what do you see regarding the systems of today? It is hard to find a relevant system that is a stand-alone system, not interconnected to other systems or interacting in some significant way with other systems. And the increases in the functionality of our systems, as well as the level of technology adoption, has continued to outpace our practices to fully harness the technology and technically manage the Systems and Systems of Systems to our greatest advantage. This presentation will look at our current situation and how our environment has changed, providing an understanding of the challenges we are facing with some examples using specific technology areas. It will then provide a look at some of the work in process to advance our processes, practices, and performance of Systems Engineering towards addressing those challenges. This includes working towards the realization of the INCOSE SE Vision 2025, progress being made in the area of Systems of Systems, and changing the way we look at Systems Engineering. And finally it will address what we are doing and need to accomplish within INCOSE to address this change.

: Jon Clauss is a Lockheed Martin Fellow, and has been at Lockheed Martin Aero – Fort Worth and legacy companies for 30 years. He started his career in the Flight Controls area and has worked the integration of system including the F-111, F-16, X-35 and F-35. His current work focus is architecture, systems engineering and integration of the F-35 with off-board systems.

INCOSE SEP Exam at UTEP January 16

The International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE) has a multi-level System Engineering Professional (SEP) Certification Program to provide a formal method for recognizing the knowledge and experience of systems engineers, regardless of where they may be in their career.

Individuals can become certified as a SEP by passing the INCOSE knowledge exam and then submitting the application paperwork with fees. INCOSE is sponsoring a paper SEP exam free of cost, (note that computer base exam has an $80 USD fee).  The Enchantment and the North Texas chapters are also sponsoring the event. The SEP exam is open to all professionals or students in the region, especially Ciudad Juarez, El Paso, and New Mexico. This exam delivery has no cost and there is no INCOSE membership requirement. The exam is based on the INCOSE SE Handbook V4 and includes 120 multiple-answer questions in 120 minutes. If your mother language is not English, you may have an extra 30 minutes to take the exam, and may bring in an unmarked translation dictionary. You can learn more about the exam at

The Industrial Manufacturing and Systems Engineering (IMSE) department at the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) is hosting the INCOSE paper-based SEP exam free of cost and inviting individuals to take the exam and get one-step closer to INCOSE Certification at the Associate (ASEP) or Certified (CSEP) level. The SEP exam is scheduled for January 16, 2019 at 6:00 pm in CRBL (Classroom Building) room 205 at UTEP.  You must pre-register to take the exam.  To sign up, please go to

Please contact Dr. Oscar Mondragon at with any questions.
