[1] However, in this article we go one step down from program to project level and look for particular aspects of system engineering worth integrating in basic project management practice. Upfront, the $1,000 question is: do I want to simply learn about project management or do I want a signal that I'm a professional in project management. – Like e.g. And that in translating these requirements into engineering entities, the project management practitioner must never lose track of these baseline requirements for the system to function as a whole. an integrated set of elements, subsystems, or assemblies that accomplish a defined objective. In cases where the project is developing a component of a larger system, the component project’s SEMP will need to integrate with the overall project’s SEMP. While most Systems Engineering Management (SEM) appl ications use some subset of traditional Project Management (PM) methods and tools, the actual practice of systems engineering management involves continuous cognitive zigzagging between systems engineering—the product domain—and project man- agement—the project domain. As a lot of the recurrent calamities in projects (e.g. This is a vital role for any project. The idea of recognizing the two domains as two different mindsets is supported by the joint studies of INCOSE and PMI on better integration of program management and systems engineering [11]. At “Handbook” level some indications of a general thinking and approach to life cycle organisation can be found. The idea of requirements management being the link between the two domains is supported by Forsberg et al [12], The idea of the “requirements management” beeing the link between the Project Management and Systems Engineering domains is also found in the book by Forsberg et al [13] The principles and methodology of Systems Engineering as a discipline is described in INCOSE “Systems Engineering Handbook”[6], which is recognized as an authoritative framework. As with software engineering, there is a great deal of overlap. For example, the PMI handbook elaborates further on 3 examples of different approaches to project life cycles: The INCOSE handbook offers a number of examples on how their generic life cycles stages is applied in different industry practice models. ‪CMMI for Development: Guidelines for Process Integration and Product Improvement‬. It defines SE processes and methodologies used on the project and the relationship of SE activities to other project activities.

The standard provides a high level (non-specific) description of the practices for system engineering, and the INCOSE handbook is consistent and aligned with this standard. Fig. planning of cost management, cost estimation and budget resembling those of PMI. As activities described in e.g. The SEMP must be consistent with and evolve in concert with the PMP. maneuverability and ergonomics can be tested and verified already in the design stage, e.g by applying mock-ups.
