  • What’s the role of anindustrial engineer?

    - Proces improvement

    - Problem analysis

    - Proces and product design
  • What is systems engineering?

    “An interdisciplinary approach toevolveandverifyanintegratedandoptimallybalanced set of product andprocess designs thatsatisfy user needsandprovide information for management decision making.”

    So: a method to design a system taking into account all stages of the life cycle
  • What is the INCOSE definition of systems engineering?

    Systems engineering is an interdisciplinary approach and means to enable the realization of successful systems. It focus on defining customer needs and required functionality early in the development cycle, documenting requirements, then proceeding with design synthesis and system validation while considering the complete problem. Systems Engineering integrates all the disciplines and specialty groups into a team effort forming a structured development process that proceeds from concept to production to operation. Systems Engineering considers both the business and the technical needs of all customers with the goal of providing a quality product that meets the user needs.

  • Stakeholder management in Project management

    Parties with an interest in the execution and outcome of a project. They would include business streams affected by or dependent on the outcome (Prince2).
