Smart Cities Initiative, presented by Jennifer Russell
As cities around the world are unevenly waking up after a pandemic coma, cities are seeking opportunities to continue evolving toward being ‘smart.’ Cities may wish to take a new approach to provide services that meet the goals of the city and needs of the residents in new and innovative ways. The implementation of such approaches will define the new “smart city.”
This presentation will introduce this human-centric model, the INCOSE-TUS Smart Cities Reference Model and provide an update on our modeling developments. Those interested are invited to join the INCOSE Smart Cities Iniitiative Working Group.

Enterprise Architecture Guide for the Unified Architecture Framework (UAF), presented by James Martin
Link to the recording of the webinar.
In this webinar James presents a workflow for creating Enterprise Architecture (EA) views in accordance with the EA Guide issued as part of the Unified Architecture Framework (UAF) standard published by the Object Management Group (OMG).
This architecture description method can be used in conjunction with processes for the
conceptualization and evaluation of an architecture, and also used as the basis for an EA modeling methodology, architecture development planning, MBSE capability assessment, and modeling project organization. The Guide covers architecting of the enterprise as well as architecting (at a high level) of a major entity within the enterprise.
James will provide an understanding of what the Guide will contain and how it could be used.

Den 10 mars klockan 09:00 - 10:00 gav Jonas Hallqvist (Saab), Robert Nilsson (Volvo Cars) och Tom Strandberg (Syntell) en översikt av INCOSEs många arbetsgrupperna och en insikt i arbetet i några av dessa. De gav även en kort summering av det stora arbetsmötet, INCOSE International Workshop 2022, som hölls 29/1-2/2.
Visste du att alla INCOSE produkter såsom INCOSE Systems Engineering Handbook, Guide to Writing Good Requirements, och SE Vision 2035 är resultat av ideellt arbete av INCOSEs medlemmar? Likaså är INCOSE drivande i utvecklingen av standarder såsom ISO 15288 och modelleringsspråket SysML. Över 50 olika arbetsgrupper träffas för arbeta fram nya rön och dokumentera dessa för att kunna spridas till andra. Du som har intresse i någon aspekt av SE kan säkert finna en arbetsgrupp som jobbar just med det temat.
Genom att engagera sig i en arbetsgrupp tar du del av en enorm samlad erfarenhet. Du kan ta en passiv roll eller en aktiv roll. Typiskt gäller "ju mer du bidrager, desto mer får du tillbaka".

Tuesday March 8, 15:00-16:30 CET, live at KTH Stockholm and Zoom (see below).
In conjunction with Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the Swedish Chapter - we have the pleasure to offer a live presentation of the new INCOSE Systems Engineering Vision 2035 by Dr Heinz Stoewer, who acted CTO in the editorial team.
The SE Vision is intended to inspire and guide the strategic direction of systems engineering across its broad stakeholder community. The Vision highlights some of the major influencing factors that impact systems engineering, how systems engineering is expected to respond to these changes, and a starting point for collaborative efforts to realize this vision.
SE Vision 2035 is a substantial update of Vision 2025 published in 2014 and addresses the current trends, opportunities and challenges. On the SE Vision 2035 web page you find more info and link to the downloadable pdf version and the web version.
"Overview Next Generation Modeling Language SysML v2" with Tim Weilkiens
The talk will provide a general overview of the SysML v2. We start with some background and history of SysML v2, continue with the architecture of SysML v2 and how it differs from SysML v1, followed by the features. There is no use or fun in presenting all the elements of SysML v2, but I briefly present the features that are new compared to v1. To give you the opportunity to try SysML v2 in practice and not just study it theoretically, I present how to use the pilot implementation. Finally, we will have a look at the game-changer feature of the SysML v2 API.
Tim Weilkins is an active member of the OMG and INCOSE. He is a co-author of the SysML specification and active in the ongoing work on SysML v1 and SysML v2. Tim is involved in many MBSE activities, including podcast, authoring books, developing methods and presenting at several conferences about MBSE and related topics.

Renewable Energy Systems as an example of layered Systems of Systems
Abstract: The energy transition required to achieve the Paris climate agreement impacts the entire energy system. The energy system consists of many systems and an infrastructure connecting these systems. How can (Systems of) Systems Engineering assist in this complex transition? In this presentation, we will use a number of concrete examples to explore the systems engineering role and methods for this complex and dynamic application.

On October 15th, 9-10 (CET) Jonas Hallqvist, ESEP and member of the INCOSE Competency Working Group presents:
Seminar on Systems Engineering Competency
Many organisations say that their main asset is the competence of the employees. But how can you know what competence you need? How do you know if you have the right competence? To answer that question, some form of competence definition is needed.
Structuring the systems engineering competence is necessary to be able to have a common understanding, identifying the current status and future needs and developing a roadmap to meet those needs. The simple statement “we need more systems engineers” is not enough for this purpose.
This presentation will contain a description on how systems engineering competence can be structured and assessed. The INCOSE Competency Working Group, current work regarding INCOSE Systems Engineering Competency Framework and its relationship to Professional Development Portal and the SE certification will be presented.
The INCOSE Systems Engineering Competence Framework was awarded Product of the Year 2018.
Den 17/9 klockan 9-10 presenterar Professor Dag Bergsjö, Systems Engineering Design, Chalmers University
Seminar on Systems Engineering and Machine Learning
This seminar will present the basics of machine learning, what it is, what to expect and how machine learning can be applied to systems engineering problems and processes. The evolution of machine learning from statistics and probability analysis towards learning algorithms will be briefly touched upon as well as traditional use of machine learning to predict and prevent product and consumer behavior (i.e. self-driving cars and fraud detection).
Since 2016 the Systems Engineering Design Research Group has been involved in several projects trying to identify the potential benefits of Machine Learning and Big Data Analysis. A few of these projects will be presented as well as the current ongoing research. Especially with the focus of knowledge management and data trustworthiness in the context of Systems Engineering.
