Systems: Engineering and Management of Capability

5 March 2018 - 16 March 2018

The module is aimed at systems engineers or those seeking to supplement their traditional engineering skills with systems skills. It is also suitable for technical managers or human sciences graduates working in, or preparing to work in, organisations moving from supplying products to supplying and supporting services or capability.

In recent times, there has been a shift from selling products or services to capability-based contracts, in which revenue to the provider may be increased by providing to the customer the ability to execute actions in order to obtain desired outcomes. This changes the balance of risk and requires holistic approaches that must consider the extended enterprise and integrated, through-life support. This module provides an understanding of capability, its provision, and the systems of systems concepts that underpin it. It addresses the business and management, as well as the engineering challenges of capability management and the transformations they imply. Case studies, group project work and guest lectures are included to provide candidates with insight into the systems engineering processes through which suppliers and users provide, support and realise capability. 

 

This module will give students an understanding of capability provision and the systems of systems concepts that underpin it. It will also give students an understanding of the challenges of capability management and the business transformation they imply 
Through case studies and group project work, it will provide students with insight into the systems engineering through which suppliers and users provide and support capability. This module considers both the organisational and technical aspects of systems engineering so that students will gain an appreciation of the holistic approach that is necessary for commercial success in the provision of complex services and capabilities.  They will be able to articulate an awareness of the business, management and engineering challenges involved.
