Legacy (Brownfield) Systems Engineering Fundamentals:
Moving from Greenfield to Brownfield Development-Improving and Replacing Legacy Systems
$1990 per person
This three-day course provides a systemic overview of how to execute Brownfield development projects, which improve or replace legacy systems. Modern development programs are increasingly characterized by Brownfield development efforts in both the military and commercial domains.
Most SE training treats systems as “clean-sheet,” (or Greenfield) developments. This class explores how to tailor the SE process for legacy system Brownfield development efforts. Participants will learn the necessary adjustments to the fundamental principles of Systems Engineering necessary when dealing with the unique aspects of Brownfield development efforts. Practical information and tools are provided that will help the participants deal with issues that inevitably occur in the real word. Extensive in-class exercises are used to stimulate application of the course material. Each student will receive a complete set of lecture notes and an annotated bibliography.
