Systems Engineering Courses
Train your systems engineering core skills
Future Link promotes SE-Trainings. Their excellent trainings target unique needs for cross-functional engineering disciplines such as Systems Engineering, Project Management, Safety Engineering, Product Development and Design Thinking.
The courses compliment Switzerland’s drive, ambition and success in delivering innovate and high quality products and services. There are a high number of engineering organisations in Switzerland with a diverse spectrum of needs. SE-Training’s aim is to address these unique needs through courses held by experienced Engineering professionals and academics.
The Systems Engineering foundations course provides a solid background of the core Systems Engineering discipline. Including learning and practicing the application of Systems Engineering methodologies, enhancing know-how with an interactive workshop, as well as individual and group exercises covering detailed use cases.
The SE Management course’s target audience are people working in engineering management roles, such as, Research and Development manager, Systems Engineering manager, Design and Development manager or any such role that involves implementing engineering organisational strategies and/or involves high interactions with the Systems Engineering leaders.
The course attendance is strictly limited to a ratio of no greater than 6:1 Participants: Presenters, thus enhancing the effectiveness of the training. Given that Systems Engineering needs to be tailored to each Participant’s unique needs, increasing the Presenter’s availability per Participant, is a key quality measure of this training course.
Quality on Time
We will study and exercise techniques how to continuously improve our effectiveness and efficiency, how to predict what we will have done when and taking the consequence, solving the discipline problem, exploiting our intuition mechanism, continuously balancing priorities, keeping focus, coping with differences in disciplines and cultures, adopting a Zero-Defect attitude and preventing any stakeholder’s complaints. Are you already doing all these things and do you think you are already very effective and efficient? That’s what other people thought before they found out otherwise.
MBSE & SYSML INTRODUCTION
This course provides the participants a combination of the fundamental and practical aspects of MBSE and SysML. The course first deals with explaining the core concepts of MBSE. Next, several practical exercises are performed to demonstrate the basics for deploying MBSE using SysML without using any specific tool. Finally, the course wraps up with a discussion of the challenges faced when developing and deploying MBSE in real-world applications and how to manage it. Course Pre-requisites: System or software engineering knowledge. No prior training is required.
MBSE & SYSML INTERMEDIATE
This course provides the participants a solid foundation about the fundamental and practical aspects of MBSE and SysML. Participants will learn more about how to interpret and understand SysML models, their elements and how to read their diagrams. Furthermore, the concepts of modeling method based on SysML will be explained in order to demonstrate how SysML can be customized for a particular application domain. This course also includes several interactive practical exercises, discussions and lessons learned to ensure a successful MBSE implementation with clear defined goals and aimed deliverables.
IMPROVING THE RESULT OF REVIEWS AND INSPECTIONS
Document Inspections are one of the most economical and necessary techniques for eliminating, and, even more important, preventing defects. Reviews are often done, but produce only a fraction of the really important defects that should be found. With only a few hours of proper Inspection training, people can find many more defects in a document, where they first found only one or two minor issues. This should give evidence that with proper education Reviews and Inspections indeed can provide the benefits promised. In this course we will discuss the Goal of projects, define Quality and Defect, explain the concept and the effect of Zero Defects, provide an overview of types of Inspections (Walkthroughs, Reviews, Fagan, Cleanroom, Gilb/Graham, Early Inspections), which Inspection type to choose, and how to calculate the Return on Investment of Inspections. We’ll exercise what you learnt on your own document. Preparation: Bring three copies of one or two pages of a document that is not too confidential and being used in your current project, perhaps even already reviewed your usual way. Then you will show yourself the power of proper Inspections. Warning: after the Inspection you may decide to discard the document as unacceptable!
FUNDAMENTALS OF SYSTEM AND PRODUCT SAFETY
This course will provide attendees with a solid foundation in the motivations for and techniques associated with, designing safer systems and products. We will review a variety of real life accidents and explore their root causes, to highlight that organisational failings, design errors and operational issues have the capacity to create catastrophic events. Within an SE approach, we’ll explore methods to assess safety and human factors risks for a set of technologically diverse systems before considering how to define design requirements to control potential hazards. The course will also provide an overview of safety management systems, hazard logs, safety arguments, incident investigation, complex electronics safety (including software), CE marking and hazardous materials.
The system reliability course provides in depth knowledge and training on the practical analysis and modelling of system reliability. The participants will firstly be introduced to the relationships between reliability, availability and maintainability. They will learn how to manage availability and maintainability while analysing and determining the system’s reliability. The participants will not only learn about the concepts but will deepen their understanding in workshops.
TECHNICAL PROBLEM SOLVING
Solving complex problems is one of the most urgently required skills in our current time. As technologies become more advanced, the possible solutions created by them become more and more complex to understand, design for and successfully implement. This can be seen across multiple industries and is causing significant front line issues to reliability, maintenance, project cost, product performance and overall schedules.
Managing the complexity of products along their lifecycle is an increasing challenge in many industries. Knowing and controlling the state of mechatronical systems during development, in the supply chain and after sales is a basic requirement for today`s manufacturer. Manyfold requirements set by customers and regulatory bodies, paired with increasing number of product variants set challenges for managing product data, documentation and changes along the product`s lifetime.
