agenda
Agenda
  • Not-so-unique SE training requirements
  • In-depth analysis of US SE curriculum
  • Quality SE curriculum in non-traditional delivery
  • Implementing SE training
  • Future Challenges
background
Background
  • DOD Agency working to quickly build program management and systems engineering skills in order to succeed in its modernization efforts – mandated by Congress
  • Systems Engineering Training Program funded as R&D effort to build a robust SE curriculum for DOD employees
program requirements
Program Requirements

A Systems Engineering Training Program that is:

  • Commercially provided
  • Portable in nature
  • Flexible in delivery
  • Modular in formatting
  • Links to industry-recognized certification
  • An option for graduate-level credit
  • … That also provides:
findings
Findings
  • Local, lecture-based training
  • Short classes and minimal time out of the office
  • Separate and distinct training for SE Practitioners and their Managers/Facilitators
  • External certification

Additional requirements identified through multiple interviews with Systems Engineers, Acquisition Managers, Managers of Engineers and other Technical Staff Members:

Research

US study of sources for SE education & training; both commercial and private, accredited and non-accredited; focused on agency-specific requirements

  • 85 training sources initially reviewed
  • 28 sources found to have relevant SE training
  • Further analysis and source interviews produced a final “Top 10” that could meet all or some of the client’s requirements
source selection
Source Selection

Additional interviews of remaining training sources

conducted; client approval of program that:

  • Provides portable, modular & flexible SE training in nine areas of study
  • Incorporates curriculum from four of the top five SE schools identified in the study
  • Entails two tracks of training – Practitioner and Manager/Facilitator tracks
  • Possibly ties to INCOSE Certification
