Systems Engineering in Unstable Contexts:
Capabilities, Incentives and Situation Awareness
Join Zoom Meeting
Meeting ID: 979 5212 6983
It is well-known that a main element of Systems Engineering (SE) is to consider the entire life-cycle of a product. This life-cycle includes the enabling and surrounding systems that are part of the product's context. However, there is a tendency to ignore the dynamic and sometimes unstable nature of this context and instead focus on the product as the "system-of-interest". This presentation will discuss ongoing research on how to include the dynamics of other context systems when doing SE, and how this is reflected in the capabilities designed into a product. The role of incentives and situation awareness in the decision making at the core of the SE process will also be discussed, as well as the interactions with other parallel decision making processes outside the organization's control.
