A Quick Peek Over a Day in Our Life

To start with a statement, a clear view of: the System Engineer is the one who is leading the entire projects technical development, therefore standing side by side with the project leader, complementing him. So, the Systems Engineer becomes a point of convergence of the various expert’s opinions, recommendations and interests. All only seeing chunks of the entire problem, and trying to impose their perceived best solution. Here comes the Systems Engineer’s role in comprising the problem in it’s entire complexity as a whole, assuring that different pieces are still...

Why Am I Doing This Thinking Online

In the last couple of days I had some debate with my wife on why writing everything down. This can be an annoying habit sometimes, I admit.

All my big ideas implementation followed through to completion and all accomplishments came like this. Cause what good is a god given strike of genius that only happens into your head, when it dies being forgotten the second day, never having the chance of being...

What’s a System Engineer

There is still an active discussion of what System Engineering and the system engineer is all about. I found a very interesting post on the matter here. The historical roots have created some of the differences in these definitions of “systems engineering.” For example, the INCOSE definition comes from its roots in electrical engineering and its early application in places like Bell Labs, the defense industry, and space programs.[1] All systems engineering definitions and all industrial engineering programs share a focus on a set of methods and techniques, although the particular methods and...

What I Learned from My Masters Study

Should I say first that I’ve enrolled for Master’s studies six years since I obtained my Bachelor diploma, and worked in the field the entire period. Then, you can ask, what’s one year compared to six to bring some more? Furthermore you will ask: then why bothering with it at all? Well, there are several reasons and even some benefits (read results) also. In the first place, I have to say that I don’t need this paper, neither am I obliged to have it. For the moment. But living these times when every block-head has a doctorate I’m glad I’ve done my Masters....

Distinguishing Between Requirements and Specification

I often hear the term specification used for referring requirements… Some organizations try to produce a single specification to act as both a requirements definition and a requirements specification. When a requirements definition is combined with a specification there is often confusion between concepts and details. There’s no really clear distinction in it’s usage, though the difference is really simple. Then, what are requirements and specification? If you look on the Project Performance International site, the difference is explained in a very simple manner:...
