Systems Engineering Principles:  Rick Hefner will summarize the first formal set of systems engineering principles, peer reviewed by our sister organizations: AIAA, IEEE, and NDIA. These principles are an initial set to help advance the discipline of systems engineering in application of the systems engineering processes, provide an indication of the basis of systems engineering, and spur further systems engineering research. (Available to INCOSE Members Only) 

Abstract:   As MBSE and SysML gain traction and popularity in a variety of industries, it begs the question: “Are we really ready to embrace modeling and simulation?”
In this session, we will explore the factors that will encourage and inhibit success in adopting model-based methods. Come prepared for an enlightening and interactive discussion as Casey Medina describes his experiences and revelations from deploying MBSE across a range of organizations.
