Software and data play an integrating role within and between systems, determining functionality and performance of the system (of systems) capabilities. Despite this crucial role of software for system behavior and performance, most organizations experience a troublesome relation between systems and software. During this KSEE we will explore this relation, the causes of the difficult relation, and opportunities for improvement.

Title of Keynote: Towards an era of smart life cycle connected cyber-physical systems - What are the implications for SE, or … when is an Automated Vehicle ready to go?
David Cameron, Head of External Engagements, UiO
This presentation will present the challenges in managing engineering information from complex process facilities. There have been many efforts made to standardize and support interoperability of this data. Here I will present a perspective on the current state of play and prospects for improvement. We will look at current work on system modelling inspired by systems engineering and see how these models can interact with simulation and digital twins.
Title: The challenges of software for process systems engineering.
Tobias Hylleseth, Student speaker, USN-SE
Tobias works as a Customer Success and Project Manager at Digitread Connect. He has a computer engineering background and a master’s in Systems Engineering at USN. He started developing Industrial IoT applications, moved on to sales for a year, and slowly transitioned towards facilitating workshops to improve the accuracy of the development projects. He is a firm believer in iterative development, with continuous feedback from key stakeholders. Currently working on a framework that lets companies utilize their process data to decrease carbon emissions and automate emission reporting.
Title: A case study on emission analysis and accounting in the waste management industry.
Gerrit Muller worked from 1980 until 1999 in the industry at Philips Healthcare and ASML. Since 1999, he has worked in research at Philips Research, the Embedded Systems Institute, and TNO in Eindhoven. He received his doctorate in 2004. In January 2008, he became a full professor of systems engineering at University of South-Eastern Norway in Kongsberg (USN), Norway. He continues to work at TNO in a part-time position. Since 2020, he is INCOSE Fellow and Excellent Educator at USN.
Abtract: Today's systems depend heavily on software and data. Despite the central role that software and data play in realizing the system behavior and performance, many organizations suffer from a difficult relationship between systems engineers and software and data engineers. What is causing this difficult relationship? .
