Chapter Meeting June 14

Feature Space:  Where System Value, Purpose, Risk, and  Configurability All Come Together by Dr. William "Bill" Schindel

Abstract:  

Model-based digital engineering offers the possibility of clarity of models that powered the scientific revolution. Among the surprising results of this is realization that, for sufficiently structured  models, some seemingly separate aspects of engineering can be collapsed into a simpler integrated representation. Engineers are accustomed to thinking of mission engineering, stakeholder needs analysis, requirements engineering, optimization of design, risk analysis, and engineering of product line variants as a series of related but different subjects that  collectively add up to a complex problem. In this talk, we will summarize some implications of the question  “What is the smallest model of a system?”  for purposes of engineering and science across the life cycle. We will  take a look at Feature Space, how it reduces degrees of freedom to give a clearer integrated  view of system value, purpose,  risk, and configurability,  along with SysML realization of this approach. 


Bio

Bill Schindel is president of ICTT System Sciences. His engineering career began in mil/aero systems with IBM Federal Systems, included faculty service at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology, and founding of three systems enterprises.  

He chairs the INCOSE MBSE Patterns Working Group, and served on the lead team of the INCOSE Agile Systems Engineering Life Cycle Discovery Project. He is an active member of the ASME VV50 working group on model credibility in advance manufacturing, and the AIAA digital thread and digital twin case study teams.  

Schindel is an INCOSE Fellow and CSEP, and is a director and past president of the INCOSE Crossroads of America Chapter.  

 

INCOSE International Symposium Hybrid event June 25-30

INCOSE International Symposium 2022

 

Top 10 Reasons to attend: 

1. Learn something new that you can use on the job!
The technical program is filled with keynotes, tutorials, presentations, and panels that address the most relevant topics in systems engineering. Come prepared with tough questions to ask our speakers and plan to bring your newfound knowledge back to the office when you return.
2. Take advantage of the program
Enjoy a very diversified and full program on different application domains through keynotes, presentations, panels...Participate in high level Systems Engineering tutorials. Be informed on the latest practices in Systems Engineering.
3. Expand your network of colleagues in the systems engineering community!
New questions arise every day on the job. Consider how great it could be to pick up the phone, or send an email, to ask a colleague with similar experiences how they have addressed the same challenge. Private and group chats will be available during the event.
4. Be inspired!
The convocation of systems engineering includes many forward looking thought-leaders who may offer just the motivation you need to read a new book or learn more about new methods that will benefit you in your daily life, both personally and professionally.
5. Hear the latest announcements from our sponsors!
It can be hard to keep up-to-date with developments in SE throughout the year, so this provides a unique opportunity to gain insights on the latest thinking and tool support for
Systems Engineering. Meet our sponsors/exhibitors in the exhibit hall and through their virtual booth on the event platform. Discover their latest products and services.
6. Gain Professional Development Units (PDUs)
Claim 1 PDU toward your INCOSE Systems Engineering Professional (SEP) certification per hour of participation, or toward other organizations depending on the subject matter.
7. Enhance your knowledge
Take the INCOSE knowledge exam & get certified as an Associate Systems Engineering Professional (ASEP) or Certified Systems Engineering Professional (CSEP).
8. Learn beyond your field or interest
The program includes 24 domains and 34 represented topics with speakers and attendees from all over the world.
9. Contribute and advance the discipline
Share your experience, points of view, approaches and best practices with other speakers, interact during coffee breaks and lunches. Stay connected with others at all times through private chat.
10. Be an actor in the INCOSE community
Meet the INCOSE Leadership during social events, and engage in an open discussion

Introducing BiSEP

Courtney Wright

Mar 31, 2022
INCOSE_BiSEP_Man_Flexing_Arm_MuscleNew on 1 April 2022 ...

INCOSE's Certification Program is proud to announce an additional certification level, the BiSEP! 

The INCOSE Certification Program first started with just the CSEP certification. A few years later, it added the ASEP and ESEP levels to recognize the earlier and later points in an SE career path. Over time, the perspective of systems engineering has transitioned from talking about T-shaped expertise, with SE on top of a traditional engineering discipline of depth, to Π-shaped, with SE as one of many pillars of expertise alongside a traditional discipline and also alongside domain expertise. The BiSEP is the natural evolution for the Π-shaped model.

BiSEP looks not at knowledge or expertise but rather at strength. It measures effectiveness, not just effort. Rather than participating in remote, individual testing or phone interview, the BiSEP review process will take place in groups, with a preference for in-person activities. It will rely more on demonstration than on references and use of SE terminology. It will not require any particular degree or educational background.

The first round of the BiSEP application process will be the Feat of Strength. Applicants may submit a video of themselves doing 10 or more pull-ups without releasing the bar. Or, they may perform an in-person curl demonstration using weights provided by the INCOSE Certification Program. We cannot accept videos or remotely proctored curls.

The second round of the BiSEP application process is only for those who have completed the Feat of Strength. This is the Unmute Challenge. In this activity, five people (at least 2 of whom are BiSEP candidates; the others may be actors) get on a Zoom call and all try to make a point at the same time. The challenge starts with all participants muted, and they must unmute themselves and then yell over the others to be heard. Extra credit will be given when a candidate loudly and vehemently agrees with the point someone else just made, but translates into their own vernacular. The Zoom calls are recorded and scored afterward, with results sent out via email.

The third round of the BiSEP is confidential. It involves a tractor tire. Further information will be shared to those who succeed at the Unmute Challenge. Anyone who divulges information about the third round will have their BiSEP removed.

The BiSEP logo will be posted at the Lands End store soon. Recommended products for BiSEPs include resistance bands, hand grip exercisers, and nutrition shake bottles
