Share |


    Technical Training Short On Site Course Quote

      This three-day course is intended for system engineers, verification engineers, managers, team leaders, and test and evaluation engineers. It provides a complete discussion of the whole verification process for item qualification, item acceptance, and system test and evaluation. Each student will receive a full set of course notes and textbook, System Verification, by the instructor Jeff Grady.

      This course can be extended to 4 days for on-sites.

      Systems Engineering Grand Systems Development Training Program



      Jeffrey O. Grady (MSSM, ESEP) is the president of a System Engineering company. He has 30 years of industry experience in aerospace companies as a system engineer, engineering manager, field engineer, and project engineer plus 20 years as a consultant and educator. Jeff has authored nine published books in the system engineering field and holds a Master of Science in System Management from USC. He teaches system engineering courses nation-wide. Jeff is an INCOSE Founder and Fellow.

    What You Will Learn:

    • How to write verification require-ments.
    • How the preparation of verification requirements will tremendously improve the development of product require-ments and reduce program risk.
    • How to couple specification development with the verification process and build the matrices needed to design the verification process and support management of the verification work.

      From this course you will obtain the knowledge and ability to plan a complete program verification process based on and traceable to the content of the specifications.

    Course Outline:

    1. Verification Introduction What is verification and how is it implemented?

    2. Verification Introduction (Continued)

    3. Requirements and Specifications Overview - Provides the linkage between specification content and the verification tests, analyses, demonstrations, and examinations that should be accomplished to prove that the product satisfies specification content.

    4. Requirements and Specifications Overview (Continued)

    5. Verification Requirements Identification Few organizations prepare specifications with proper coverage of verification requirements because it is hard work to do it well if you do not understand their purpose. We will focus on item qualification here where the requirements in the item performance specifications are the basis for the verification work.

    6. Verification Requirements Identification (Continued)

    7. Verification Requirements Writing Workshop

    8. Verification Requirements Writing Workshop (Continued)

    9. Top-Down Verification Planning and Documentation This work completes the transformation between product and verification requirements to methods and verification tasks.

    10. Top-Down Verification Planning and Documentation Workshop

    11. Top-Down Verification Planning and Documentation Workshop (Continued)

    12. Bottom-Up Qualification Planning This process assigns each verification task to a principle engineer and results in a plan and procedure for each task, development and acquisition of task supporting entities, and scheduling of tasks.

    13. Bottom-Up Qualification Planning Workshop

    14. Bottom-Up Qualification Planning Workshop (Continued)

    15. Item Qualification Implementation and Reporting

    16. Item Qualification Verification Management and Audit In the end we must have produced evidence of the state of compliance of the design with its requirements in the form of verification reports. The content of these reports must be audited and a conclusion reached.

    17. FCA Workshop The functional configuration audit is where the customer reaches a conclusion about the product relative to its driving requirements.

    18. FCA Workshop (Continued)

    19. System Verification Planning DT&E is based on the content of the system specification and OT&E is based on the content of user documentation that should, but may not, be consistent with the contract requirements.

    20. System Verification Planning (Continued)

    21. Acceptance Verification Planning, Management, and Audit - The item acceptance work should be based on the content of the item detail specifications.

    22. Acceptance Verification Planning Workshop

    23. Re-verification and Verification Variations Under what circumstances would it be necessary to return to verification after it has been completed initially? There are also alternatives to verification appropriate for a high rate production program.

    24. Process Verification Besides product systems verification also applies to the systems we commonly call enterprises and programs.
