Abstract:
The Future of Systems Engineering It’s not hard to see that our society is being overrun by technology. And yet there is an expectation that we will solve our biggest problems by using technology. But these world spanning societal problems are becoming increasing complex and more difficult to solve because of the very technology that is embedded in the world already. Systems Engineering is a profession dedicated to finding holistic solutions that takes into account every eventuality. But trying to understand the emergent properties of the complex systems needed to solve complex problems is especially difficult. The future of Systems Engineering must address these issues in a compressive manner so that the next generation of Systems Engineers can face these challenges and find successful solutions. Paul Martin will be reviewing the 2007 INCOSE Systems Engineering Vision 2020 document in light of our present day dilemmas. Is INCOSE Vision 2020 still pertinent? Has Systems Engineering made the strides it needs so it can be part of making a better tomorrow for all of us?
