Systems Engineering: keeping a handle on your project
The biggest challenge with any sizable project is keeping a handle on the complete process, from start to finish. It is crucial that all parties collaborate, that the information flow is channelled in a consistent way and that the progress of the project is carefully monitored. No easy task. But How2SE and the implementation of Systems Engineering make it achievable.
Take, for example, a large infrastructure project such as the construction of a railway tunnel or a floodgate. Many parties are involved: clients, contractors, environmental agencies, governments, citizens etc. Not only is it important that all of those parties work together seamlessly, but they also need to be kept up-to-date on the status of the project at any given time. Communication on the ground, however, is often difficult due to misunderstandings that can result in dissatisfied stakeholders, design flaws, delays and increasing costs. Whilst the desire to succeed is there, the knowledge required to unambiguously allocate tasks and responsibilities and to keep everyone on the same page, is lacking. How2SE has that knowledge.
How2SE makes managing projects easier
How2SE consultants specialise in managing complex projects using Systems Engineering (SE). SE is a tried and tested methodology that makes projects easier to manage and organise effectively. The essence of SE involves defining customer- and system requirements, documenting agreements and sharing information. This is done in such a way that all decisions and communication are always traceable.
Working together towards a common goal
SE creates assurance, clarity, security and time & cost savings, and ensures that the result meets the client’s requirements. As such, all parties work towards a common goal, under the guidance of How2SE.
Systems Engineering in civil engineering and other domains
Systems Engineering can be applied in any arena that demands close control over complex projects. How2SE has gained credibility in the civil engineering, healthcare, shipbuilding, oil and gas, defence and food sectors.
Systems Engineering with How2SE
With SE, identifying the needs of stakeholders and users is important. Decisions need to be well informed and agreements need to be kept. in other words: the complexity of a project needs to be managed. How does How2SE do that?
How2SE as the leading SE supplier
How2SE was involved in creating the SE Guidelines and has a leading role within the trade association, INCOSE. To date, we have trained more than 2,000 engineers. Get to know us.
