Abstract: Everything you always wanted to know about systems engineering on one web site.
The Guide to the Systems Engineering Body of Knowledge (SEBoK) was published in September as a wiki at http://sebokwiki.org, and this webinar will help users explore the resources it contains. Following a short overview, Art Pyster and Dave Olwell will demonstrate how to use the SEBoK navigation features to find information. They will walk through one of the use cases, showcase the implementation examples, discuss the primary references, and demonstrate the use of the glossary. As the SEBoK is a wiki, the presenters will discuss commenting and updating protocols. There will be time for questions and answers.
