CS4600E - System engineering introduction

CS4600E - System engineering introduction


General objective:

At the end of this course, students will have basics on system engineering of complex systems including:
definition of basis notions, historic, pursued objectives, life cycle of complex systems and proceses defined by system engineering.

Some specific processes will be highlighted : so called “Technical processes", Safety assurance process and Security.

Detailed objectives:

- to be able to define complex systems
- to be able to explain and justify system engineering objectives
- to be able to explain system engineering approach
- to be able to list and explain objective of all system engineering processes (as introduced by 15288 ISO norm)

- to be able to explain and justify system safety assurance
- to be able to lead general safety analysis
- to be able to plan safety assurance case

- to be able to explain and justify system secutity

Position in the programme

This module is introductive. It must be performed before all other system engineering, safety and security modules.
