About the course

The course discusses fundamental concepts and processes of design thinking and systems engineering, along with applicable methods and tools.

Initial focus is on need identification and problem definition, carried out in interactive sessions with the customer and other stakeholders. This is followed by requirements and design definition activities during concept and system design phases and articulated through examples and case study projects.

Emphasis will be on enhancing the effectiveness of deployed systems by ensuring that the products and services meet stakeholders needs while reducing their operational and support costs. Specific topics include: Needs Analysis, Concept of Operation, System context, Requirements definition and traceability, Voice of the Customer, Design Concepts identification and selection, System Functional Architecture; Life Cycle and Risk Management.

The course finishes with a simulated System Requirements Review (SRR) in which the students present their case studies.

Course Goal

This course will provide you with the systemic mindset you need to identify the real customer needs and hence solving the right problem. You will be given a systematic and pragmatic approach to define and design creative solutions that not only meet customer needs but also those of other stakeholders.

Target group

This course is aimed at anyone involved in the marketing, procurement, engineering, management or support of technical systems (systems comprising hardware/software/humans).
It is a good opportunity to establish a shared view for customers and contractors project teams as well as for different departments (e.g. marketing and engineering) within the organization.

No formal knowledge in Systems Engineering is needed. However, a few years practical experience in the field of complex technical systems is recommended to have gained an insight to the need for thinking and acting in terms of systems.
