CS4608E - Cross cutting System engineering 1


General objective:

The objective of this module is to provide students with basic knowledge and practice about three major cross cutting methods : model based system engineering (MBSE) , Agile System Engineering and safety analysis model (MBSA)

Modeling will address the development processes of system (MBSE) and the safety analysis processes (MBSA using FHA-PSSA-SSA)
For agile system engineering, the aims will be to :
explain objectives, organization and working of any Agile methods
put in place an agile organization in a real software development project

Detailed objectives:

At the end of this module students :
- will be able to list and characterise cross-cutting system engineering methods

- will be able to describe, characterise and justify MBSE
- will be able to put in practice MBSE on a concrete system development

- will be able to describe and characterise basic MBSA : FHA, SSA, PSSA (board)
- will be able to apply these methods on a concrete system

- will be able to describe precisely what is agile method and its objectives
- will be able to explain the scrum method:
- Organisation of the scrum method
- Cutting in sprints
- Functions and roles of each agile team member
- Objectives of each scheduled meeting
- Objectives of the backlog
- Use of a tool to manage the method

- will be able to implement the scrum method in a real develoment project :
- Rotation definition
- Definition of the first sprint
- Implementation of “daily scrum”
- Demo/retrospective implementation
- Start of the following sprints
