Course Outline


  • Objectives of this training/mentoring module,
  • Issues on the System Engineering and Model Typologies (AFIS, Incose),
  • The System Vision: definitions and characteristics,
  • Notions of the System Enginering : view and viewpoint of the standard ISO/IEC/IEEE 42010, principles, process and activities
  • Typology of Requirements : business requirements, functional and non functional requirements, user requirements, design and exploitation level requirements

Project Management in the field of System Engineering

  • Processes and phases, integrated and simultaneous engineering,
  • System development : generic process, engineering and integration, iteration et recursivity,
  • Organisation in the System Engineering Discipline: a collaborative management of the information, language and data

The Engineering Process and Modeling

  • Description of the dynamic and static context of the system: entities, flows exchanged, external constraints,
  • Modeling in system engineering: Semantic, functional, dynamic, temporal, organic modeling,
  • Panorama of representations in SysML,
  • Positioning of the System Development Cycle in the various state-of-the-art approaches according to ISO / IEC 15288: Harmony, OOSEM, RUP-SE, State Analysis MBSE, Vitech MBSE Initiative,
  • Basic process for engineering: requirements gathering- definition of technical requirements - analysis, design of functional and organic / physical architectures,
  • Verification of the constituents of the system against technical requirements,
  • Validation against the allocated requirements and initial requirements for the complete system,
  • Evaluation and optimization of architectures

Architecture Frameworks for System Engineering

  • Aligning the Architecture with Changes

Tools for the System Engineering

  • Expected Functionnalities from the tools,
  • Complementary tools for engineering,
  • Presentation of a System Engineering tool,


  • Phases of requirements gathering, analysis and design in the system engineering,
  • Ensuring traceability between requirements and components of the system,
  • Integration and Acceptance tests of the Requiements upon the system architecture

Notice : In order to emphasize on the traceability needs between requirements and technical solutions presented during this course, the examples of the case study are illustrated using a System Engineering Modeling tool.

In case of an on-site session of this course, we can also apply concepts presented during the course to your own case study (and review solutions through an additional scheduled journey if necessary).

UML, SysML, MDA standards referenced on this website are trademaks of the consortium Object Management Group (OMG).
