Syracuse Technology Garden 235 Harrison St Ste 209 , Syracuse, (map)

Systems Engineering is a wide and diverse field. It can encompass product architecture, define product features, writing requirements, doing product design and planning system or lower level tests. When done correctly, it can save money and time. When done poorly or not at all, the product is plagued with delays, scope creep, and disjointed. It leaves the customer with unmet expectations and frustration.

Topics to be covered:

• Systems Engineering for Product Development

• What is Systems Engineering?

• How good Systems Engineer can save costs, time, and schedule

• How Systems Engineering can be used in other disciplines (finance, IT, manufacturing).

• It’s not just about writing good requirements.

• Let’s walk through a drone or other design from a Systems Engineering perspective.
