2015-11-21 INCOSE Conference on Systems Engineering

INCOSE Canada is hosting a day long conference concerning Systems Engineering, and a couple of the presentations will be of significant interest to some members of CAPCHI involved in complex systems development and software developers. This conference will take place at Carleton University on November 21st, and very affordable at $39 early bird admission.

Dr. Barclay Brown of IBM will be presenting aspects of Systems Modelling, using advanced SE Tools, and Dr. Ronald Houde will be presenting work he has done using extensions of UML (Four plus One architecture modelling developed by Dr. Phil Krutchen) in development of an airworthy safety critical flight management system.  This is a first in the industry where a systems modelling tool, based on extensions of IBM’s Rhapsody modelling tool, has been used for a safety of flight certifiable platform.

This Conference on Systems Engineering will be held in Ottawa at Carleton University on Saturday, November 21st, 2015 and over live streaming via Internet to other locations. More info, including the conference agenda , can be found at: http://incosecanada.weebly.com/).

This event is sponsored by INCOSE, and largely from the generous sponsorship and ongoing support of Thales Canada, IBM, NavCan, the NRC and organizations allowing staff to share their achievements.

During the conference there will be two keynote presentations: cyber security and large scale integrated battlefield simulation.  There are subsequently four streams addressing Workforce Development and Learning for the 21st century, System Engineering Modelling for system life cycles, best practices in System Life Cycle Management, and Analysis of Complexity.

These streams will be supported by both longstanding practitioners sharing their experience, and members of the academic and research community presenting their work.  Afterwards there will be a networking session, to permit DND personnel, academia, industry and students to network.
