Product Development & Systems Engineering uses a structured yet flexible approach to provide a holistic, solid foundation to the successful development of complex products or systems.
This course will take you step by step through the product life cycle, from conception to design, development, production, deployment, sustainment and disposal. You will learn how the different components of a system interrelate, and how each contributes product accomplishing its missions. Systems engineering terminology, which can so often confuse the newcomer, is presented in an easily digestible form. Video lectures for individual topics will introduce key concepts. This course welcomes anyone who wants to find out how complex products or systems can be developed and implemented successfully. It is relevant to anyone in project management, engineering, quality assurance, product support, operations, management, maintenance and many other areas. No specific background is required, and we welcome learners with all levels of interest and experience.
The course is based on ISO/IEC/IEEE 15288 – the same standard used by the International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE). Therefore, students will be armed with the knowledge required to take the INCOSE knowledge exam for Systems Engineering Preparation (SEP) certification. This course covers all of the material from the INCOSE Systems Engineering Handbook 4th edition – and much more!
