Special Tutorial – Data Analytics for Systems Engineering (Saturday, 22 May 2021)

REGISTER HERE

Dear Members and Friends,

Please join INCOSE San Diego for a virtual half+ day systems engineering tutorial on Data Analytics. This tutorial will be taught by Rick Hefner, PhD, Caltech Center for Technology and Management Education and will include greater depth than regular chapter presentations. Come learn more on data analytics.

Data Analysis refers to inspecting, transforming, and modeling data with the goal of discovering useful information to support decision-making. Data analysis has always played a vital role in helping businesses and systems operate more effectively, and increasingly a key role in design challenges such as autonomy and artificial intelligence.

Please check back for pre-read information before May 22nd! If you have questions about registration or the tutorial, we can be reached at info@sdincose.org.

When: Saturday, 22 May 2021, from 9am – 3pm Pacific Time (includes half hour lunch break).
Where: Virtual (register here)
Cost: Free for INCOSE members (including CAB members) / $5 for non-INCOSE students / $15 for all other non-INCOSE attendees
Webcast: Details on the webcasting will be provided beforehand (note that Zoom is usually our technology of choice).

Synopsis:

Data analysis refers to inspecting, transforming, and modeling data with the goal of discovering useful information to support decision-making. Data analysis has always played a vital role in helping businesses and systems operate more effectively, and increasingly a key role in design challenges such as autonomy and artificial intelligence.

The tutorial will present a comprehensive overview of data analytics as it applied to current and future system design, development, operations, and maintenance. We will review of the challenges and opportunities for the systems engineering discipline and present an integrated view of systems engineering, systems thinking, and data analytics. Tools and methods for dealing with ill-defined boundaries, requirements, and interfaces will be highlighted. Guest speakers will address how they have used data analytics in their systems. The concepts will be useful for any systems engineer who is looking to implement advanced designs concepts involving big data and the internet of things.

Presenter: Mr. Rick Hefner, PhD, Caltech Center for Technology and Management Education and INCOSE Los Angeles board officer.

Dr. Rick Hefner serves as the Program Director for Caltech’s Center for Technology and Management Education, where he is responsible for professional training programs.
