Founded in February, 1998, the Southern Maryland Chapter follows the INCOSE International Mission, Vision and Goals. 

Additionally, we will:

  • Continue our outreach program to support systems engineering conferences and events at both the Regional and International levels of INCOSE
  • Continue to build partnerships with local professional associations offering unique and diverse systems engineering insights while complimenting their inherent interest areas


INCOSE-LA Chapter Tutorial: Correcting Misperceptions of Systems Engineering Practices

Register here! (Remote participation available. Contact info at this link)

Topic: Correcting Misperceptions of Systems Engineering Practices

Abstract:  This tutorial addresses common misperceptions of systems engineering, explains from where these misperceptions arise, demonstrates through exercises the problems that can arise, and provides solutions to correct these misperceptions of systems engineering concepts, methods, and practices.

Examples of common questions and misperceptions include
  -  Should requirements come first before functions?
  -  Should decomposition be done independently of the solution architecture?
  -  Should high-level requirements be different from other requirements?

Participants will be able to identify several common misperceptions regarding SE practices and be able to explain and demonstrate correct SE methods and processes on the selected topics.

Speaker: Dr. Ron Carson is an Adjunct Professor of Engineering at Seattle Pacific University, an Affiliate Assistant Professor in Industrial and Systems Engineering at the University of Washington, a Fellow of the International Council on Systems Engineering, and a certified Expert Systems Engineering Professional (ESEP).

He retired in 2015 as a Technical Fellow in Systems Engineering after 27 years at The Boeing Company. He is the author of numerous articles regarding requirements analysis and systems engineering measurement. He has been issued six US patents in satellite communications, and two patents regarding “Structured Requirements Generation and Assessment”.
