Systems Engineering, Digital Transformation, and the Industrial Revolution
While complex systems transform the landscape, the Systems Engineering discipline is also experiencing a transformation to model based discipline. In alignment with this, one of the International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE) strategic objectives is to accelerate this transformation. INCOSE is building a broad community that promotes and advances model based methods. This model based transformation is necessary to advance the discipline and handle the seamless integration of computational algorithms and physical components across domains and traditional system boundaries. This presentation will cover two significant contextual drivers for transformation, (1) Digital Transformation and (2) System Complexity. The presentation will also share several current INCOSE activities directed at accelerating the transformation of Systems Engineering to a model based discipline.
