Description This course addresses the methodology and structural approach to engineering projects for large and complex systems. It presents system engineering as an engineering discipline and emphasizes the role of system engineering process in managing engineering projects.

Objectives To present:
• advanced systems engineering methodology of project development
• requirements traceability methods
• system documentation hierarchy
• the role of design reviews
• human engineering guidelines
• safety engineering: hazard analysis and safety report
• software as part of system engineering
• risk management: explore project areas that involve potential technical, cost and schedule risks
• the role of reliability, maintainability and logistic support

Who Should Attend Project managers, systems engineers, electrical, software engineers and other technical personnel who are involved in large system applications for the defense, nuclear, power and transportation industries. Professionals who need to upgrade their current experience and knowledge of system engineering, program managers who require practical knowledge of certain aspects of system engineering or who need to refresh their knowledge. Within a short period of three days, the attendees will benefit from the practical engineering experience of the instructors.

Instructors: Corina Rosenberg, P.Eng., M. Amjad, M.Eng., P.Eng. and Ali Zuashkiani, Ph.D.

Here are some reviews of the training vendor.
The course was very well presented and the course instructor was absolutely amazing.
Reviewed by 2013
Our instructor, Stephen Lamming, was outstanding and a true expert in his field. He was able to complement the technical air monitoring information with practical real life examples which was highly beneficial. He is an excellent communicator and was highly interactive with the course attendees. This course was recommended to me because Stephen Lamming does an outstanding job. I was very impressed with this course and have subsequently recommended it to my colleagues.
