Systems Engineering Training
In this one-day course professionals learn about systems engineering, moving from general concepts to the specifics of how systems engineering is being used for actual transportation projects. An understanding of how systems engineering can be applied to their ITS project delivery process will be provided in the course. This course will cover the benefits of using systems engineering, and how to satisfy the Federal requirements for systems engineering as documented in Rule 940.11. The Systems Engineering for Intelligent Transportation Systems Handbook will be used as a primary reference for this course. Delivered in an interactive workshop format, the course will provide the information needed to apply the general systems engineering guidance from this handbook to the project delivery process. A combination of lectures, transportation examples, and exercises will be used to illustrate the basic concepts and introduce the topics.
- Public sector professionals involved in ITS project delivery including project managers and transportation planning, design, construction, operations, and maintenance professionals that participate in ITS project development.
- Private sector consultants under contract to the public sector to support ITS planning and project development.
- No prior background in systems engineering is required.
Course Goal and Outcomes
Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
- Understand the systems engineering fundamentals
- Identify where in their current process systems engineering is already being performed
- Find opportunities where systems engineering will benefit their process
