Adopting System Engineering: All, None or… Just a Little?
Many experts boastfully claim that organizations must adopt all system engineering practices to reap any benefits. This post challenges that stance. All of it. You need all of it. That’s the message that seems to float around system engineering practices and principles. You see, while I attended a number of conferences over the course of the …
Terminology Trap: The Model Based Enterprise
Terminology. Terminology. Terminology. One of the base challenges that this industry faces is terminology. This space, software supporting engineering and development, is literally overrun with existing technology and concepts of how to use them. So when a software provider comes up with something new, something they don’t want the industry to see as merely an enhancement but …
Simulation Reconciliation, the Series
It took me a while, but I reached a conclusion. More simulation integration is needed. It’s needed in a bad way. You see, there are a ton of good simulation tools being put to use out there. Over the course of the last year, I’ve been digging and digging into them. Some are being used to …
