Seminar Description

Effective project management and the implementation of a systems approach are key elements in a strategy designed to ensure successful achievement of a project's objectives, while remaining within the project's cost and schedule constraints. Whether you are a Project and program managers planning and managing the development of complex systems and interfaces, desire a greater degree of knowledge on how Systems Engineering best practices can be capitalized to enhance project and program success; or are simply interested in gaining a systems perspective into managing complexity, you will find this seminar invaluable.
 
This seminar discusses the benefits of combining traditional project management with a systems methodology in order to improve the project's product development cycle with a focus on customer needs analysis and reducing total lifecycle costs. In an effective system, all components must integrate seamlessly, without the excessive cost of re-work and scrap. Managing a project within these limitations requires a systematic process for planning, design, and production activities. Specific seminar topics include understanding the systems engineering process, planning from a systems perspective, carrying out the requirements definition, analysis, and allocation process, incorporating design processes into the project planning process, performing trade studies involving scheduling, costs, and performance that incorporate technical performance measurements.
 

What You Will Learn

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
  • Identify the impacts and relationships between technical and project risks
  • Understand the value of Systems Engineering to product development
  • Demonstrate a structured analytical decision making methodology
  • Convert customer needs into a producible product
  • Explain a brief overview of the Systems Engineering concepts and fundamentals
  • Describe systems Integration methodology
  • Recognize Life-Cycle Costing
  • Compare Synergies between Systems Engineering and Project Management
