Complex Systems WG

International Workshop

21 Jan – 24 Jan 2012

Jacksonville, FL, USA

Charter: We focus on enlarging the intersection of Complex Systems Science and Systems Engineering, focusing on knowledge that is not addressed in current systems engineering documentation such as standards, handbooks, and textbooks.  ...

We want to develop useful products that will help INCOSE members and their organizations perform systems engineering better, based on knowledge from these sciences.

Although complex analysis is important, the goal is to make a difference in synthesis (creation of new systems) as well.

It is our goal to strengthen the practice of Systems Engineering (SE) by exploring and capturing the synergy between traditional SE and Lean.  To do this, we will apply the wisdom of Lean Thinking into SE practices integrating people, processes, and tools for the most effective delivery of value to program stakeholders; formulate the Body of Knowledge of Lean SE; develop supplements to the INCOSE SE Handbook (and other such manuals) with Lean Enablers for SE; and develop and disseminate training materials and publications on Lean SE within the INCOSE community, industry, and academia

Power & Energy Systems WG

The PESWG Charter is

to facilitate a “systems engineering approach” to the analysis, decision support, and future development of effective energy solutions.

Purpose is to direct expertise and a “systems” focus to support decision makers in the critical challenges of developing future energy systems that meet stakeholder needs for safety, effectiveness, cost, and availability. The principal means of approaching these challenges will be to combine the disciplined system lifecycle methodologies evolved in INCOSE with sophisticated modeling tools, guided by Energy systems subject matter experts toward desired outcomes.
