Systems Engineering, when and how?
Richard Beasley, Global Chief of Systems Engineering, Rolls-Royce
- Friday 18 October, 1-2pm
- Lecture Theatre 1.15, Queen's Building
The second lecture (“Systems Engineering, when and how?”) addresses how Systems Engineering fits into the Engineering process, and the Systems Thinking methodology (creating a focus on context, requirements, purpose and functionality) that enables the approach.
Creating engineering solutions is hard and challenging. All too often engineered solutions do not meet customer/stakeholder expectations, and engineering projects suffer from extensive rework, run late and overspend. This is due to the difficult and increasing complex nature of the products we attempt to engineer. An approach to engineering is needed that identifies and understands issues as early as possible. In a series of 3 lectures, experts from Rolls-Royce will describe Systems Engineering, a holistic approach to engineering projects that addresses the root causes of rework and, integrated with existing detailed engineering analysis and design methods, creates a much greater probability of success.
