Students of the systems engineering master program at USN often give the feedback that “it isn't easy to apply systems engineering in their company”. Similarly, we hear from many managers at companies that they do not apply systems engineering. This latter is probably not true. Most companies apply something that is a flavor of systems engineering, using different words and tuned to their specific domain, systems and technologies. However, we see everywhere opportunities to improve current practice by using the body of knowledge across domains. How can we make such improvement process working?
In this session, we asked a number of speakers from small and large companies to reflect on their current practice, needs, and expectations for systems engineering.
Attendance is free, but please sign up to allow us to facilitate for the number of participants.

The Systems Engineering Study Group meets at University College of Southeast Norway, Kongsberg, Norway. The objective of the meetings is to exchange experience between people who are interested in Systems Engineering or who have the intend to become a Systems Engineer. The SESG discusses one theme per meeting, the subjects are one of many SE aspects. We have two to three meetings per year.
