Course Description

The successful engineering of complex systems such as connected and autonomous vehicles requires that the design and methodology of these “systems of systems” follow a disciplined approach. Systems engineering focuses on developing the appropriate framework for successful design, testing, validation, and management of complex systems over the entire life cycle of a product by carefully considering the needs and functionality of the product at the start of the development process. In this course students will be introduced to the concepts and tools of systems engineering and how systems engineering relates to other engineering disciplines. The course is largely activity based with concepts introduced to support the activities and put them in the appropriate context. The course includes a group project that covers concept, stakeholders, use cases, requirements, interfaces, verification & validation, and quality assurance for a system.

Lab Projects Description

Group project covering: stakeholder identification, use cases, requirements definition, verification & validation, testing, and quality assurance for a CAV system or subsystem.

Course Learning Objectives

  • Understand the role and responsibilities of the system engineer.
  • Understand systems engineering as a multi-discipline field.
  • Understand use cases, concept of operations, and identification of stakeholders.
  • Understand the “system of systems” viewpoint of systems engineering.
  • Understand the importance of interfaces and proper documentation.
  • Understand the concept of a requirement and the different sub-types ofrequirements (functional, design, derived, etc.).
  • Practice writing meaningful requirements from the consideration of use cases, concept ofoperations, stakeholder needs.
  • Understand the “V” and “double V” models for system design
  • Understand and be able to create system boundary diagram and system P-Diagrams•
  • Understand the relationship between requirements and testing.
  • Understand the difference between verification and validation.
  • Practice with test definition and creating a Design Verification Plan.
  • Understand the FMEA as a quality assurance tool.
  • Practice creating an FMEA using an appropriate worksheet
  • Complete a project that includes elements from both sides of the V-model.
