Systems Engineering & Development (SE&D) projects continue to exhibit performance issues … despite years of investments in Engineering education, training, Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI), ISO 9000, Organizational Standard Processes (OSPs), SE certification, and others, by industry, government, academia, and professional organizations.
Most engineers have a void in their Engineering education that limits their ability to effectively and efficiently perform multi-discipline Systems Engineering and Development (SE&D). How do you correct the void?
To overcome the Engineering education void, you presented a business case to management for resources to send personnel to SE short courses … Trainees returned as “SE Theory Philosophers” unable to actually perform SE&D with little Return on Investment (ROI). What do you do?
SE educators and training vendors pack up their philosophical presentations and walk out the door leaving you with a major challenge... How do you deploy “SE Theory Philosophers” with limited ROI to projects? What do you do?
