Applied Systems Engineering

Today’s complex systems present difficult challenges to develop. From military systems to aircraft to environmental and electronic control systems, development teams must face the challenges with an arsenal of proven methods. Individual systems are more complex, and systems operate in much closer relationship, requiring a system-of-systems approach to the overall design. The discipline and concepts of systems engineering provide ways to manage this complexity. By following systems engineering practices, teams organize their thought processes in such a way as to bring order out of chaos. Studies of complex programs have shown that the proper application of up-front thinking can reduce the cost impact of errors by as much as five hundredfold. Systems engineering is a simple flow of concepts, frequently neglected in the press of day-to-day work, that reduces risk step by step. In this workshop, you will learn the latest systems principles, processes, products, and methods. This is a practical course, in which students apply the methods to build real, interacting systems during the workshop. You can use the results now in your work. This workshop provides an in-depth look at the latest principles for systems engineering in context of standard development cycles, with realistic practice on how to apply them. The focus is on the underlying thought patterns, to help the participant understand why rather than just teach what to do. Read more about one company’s long experience here.

Dr. Scott Workinger has led innovative technology development efforts in complex, risk-laden environments for 30 years in the fields of manufacturing (automotive, glass, optical fiber), engineering and construction (nuclear, pulp & paper), and information technology (expert systems, operations analysis, CAD, collaboration technology). He currently teaches courses on program management and engineering and consults on strategic management and technology issues. Scott has a B.S in Engineering Physics from Lehigh University, an M.S. in Systems Engineering from the University of Arizona, and a Ph.D. in Civil and Environment Engineering from Stanford University.
Mr. Glen Francisco (CSEP, PMP) has over 17 years of experience developing new technologies for both private and government uses. He has a personable, engaging teaching style that keeps a class alive with information. He has been a Lead Systems Engineer, Project Engineer and Program Manager for military & commercial companies Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Texas Instruments, Raytheon, DRS Technologies, and more. His products have supported security surveillance, paramilitary (fire, police & EMS), automotive and industrial markets using passive thermal imaging technologies and other electro-optical imaging laser radar technologies. He hold multiple patents in missile guidance and plastic thermal management. He developed & introduced Thermal Imaging Cameras into the firefighting market in 2001, technology saving hundreds of lives and millions of dollars in property.
