On January 14th, 2021, 9-10 CET INCOSE Sverige will host Kevin Fairs and Simon Smith presenting on:
Systems Engineering with influences from Enterprise Architecture, Digital Twins and Business Value Orientation
The presentations focus on describing how Systems Engineering of complex systems can benefit from influences from approaches such as Enterprise Architecture, Digital Twins and Business Value Orientation.
The presentations are based on both theory and extensive practical experiences. Examples of initiatives that have been completed and are the basis for the message delivered in the presentations include:
- The evolution of a Government-sector System Engineering practice towards business and mission value
- The Common Support Operating Model for the UK’s Royal Navy (COMPASS)
The presenters will give a short presentation and share their learning experiences from the above and other work.
1. The need for Systems Engineering to focus on Business Value – Kev Fairs
2. The concept of a Digital Operating Model with examples – Simon Smith
Kevin Fairs is Lead Architect at CACI Information Intelligence Group. He has worked in various roles across system engineering for over 20 years, both in commercial and government domains. In the last 10 years, Kevin has focused on architecture in the face of complex systems.
Simon Smith is Chief Architect in CACI Information Intelligence Group, where he works in defence and national security with blue chip customers on the benefits and challenges of the digitisation of business operating models. He is a member of INCOSE and the UK’s Safety Critical Systems Club, and sits on the techUK working group on Digital Twins.
INCOSE Sveriges December 17th (9-10 am CET) webinar will host Gerrit Muller speaking on
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.
Gerrit Muller, originally from the Netherlands, received his master’s degree in physics from the University of Amsterdam in 1979. He worked from 1980 until 1997 at Philips Medical Systems as a system architect, followed by two years at ASML as manager systems engineering, returning to Philips (Research) in 1999. Since 2003, he has worked as a senior research fellow at the Embedded Systems Institute in Eindhoven, focusing on developing system architecture methods and the education of new system architects, receiving his doctorate in 2004. In January 2008, he became a full professor of systems engineering at University of South-Eastern Norway in Kongsberg (USN), Norway. He continues to work as a senior research fellow at the Embedded Systems Innovations by TNO in Eindhoven in a part-time position. Since 2020, he is INCOSE fellow and Excellent Educator at USN.
On October 15th, 9-10 (CET) Jonas Hallqvist, ESEP and member of the INCOSE Competency Working Group presents:
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.

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.
