Configuration Management for In-Service Engineering Agents
Call for Tuition Information
Today’s systems do not stand alone; each system fits within an increasingly complex system-of-systems, a network of interconnection that virtually guarantees surprise behavior. In addition, systems are acquired using COTS and streamlined, performance-based acquisition methods that virtually guarantee configuration problems. Yet this network of operational systems demands as never before that the system configurations be properly managed. This two-day course is a comprehensive treatment of Configuration Management (CM) with multiple exercises to practice the learned methods using real-world, hands-on challenges. It is structured around the five essential CM processes of EIA-649B: For each process, there is full discussion of how that process interacts with system development, integration, test, operations, and support throughout the system life cycle, with an emphasis on the viewpoint of in-service engineering. Aspects and consequences of software and COTS usage are also emphasized, particularly in the area of change control during in-service engineering.
InstructorsDr. Eric Honour, CSEP, international consultant and lecturer, has a 40-year career of complex systems development & operation. Former President of INCOSE, selected as Fellow and as Founder. He has led the development of 18 major systems, including the Air Combat Maneuvering Instrumentation systems and the Battle Group Passive Horizon Extension System. BSSE (Systems Engineering), US Naval Academy; MSEE, Naval Postgraduate School; and PhD, University of South Australia.
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.
