Optimizing Systems Design Engineering C2309

Topics: Management and Organization


Unlock the future of engineering with our comprehensive, full-day Systems Design Engineering (SDE) course, specifically crafted for engineering professionals. This course bridges the strengths of Design Engineering and Systems Engineering, equipping you with the principles and tools to revolutionize your approach to product design. By embracing SDE, your organization will overcome systemic deficiencies, improve engineering efficiency, and consistently design more-innovative best-in-class products, all while achieving significant cost savigns and aligning with digital transformation objectives.

SDE is not just another overhead-heavy initiative, but a set of foundational principles designed to enhance efficiency and drive the design of superior products. Through interactive sessions, real-world case studies, and expert guidance, you'll master System-Level Assessment (SLA) and System Design Assessment (SDA) methodologies, enabling quick development of system-level requirements that foster innovation and sustainability. This approach encourages your designers to think holistically from the early design phases, preventing costly redesigns and ensuring your products hit the market faster with superior quality and lower costs.

By adopting SDE principles, you'll not only improve your bottom line but also foster a culture of collaboration and innovation, breaking down silos and leveraging the collective expertise of your team. SDE has been proven to enhance innovation, highlight more patentable opportunities, and drive significant cost savings through sustainable design practices. By the end of this course, you'll be equipped to lead cultural and procedural changes within your organization, advocating for impactful product designs and strategic business success.

Register now to transform your engineering practices, drive unparalleled and immediate bottom-line value, and become a leader in Systems Design Engineering.

Learning Objectives

By successfully completing this course, you’ll be able to:

  • Understand the foundational elements necessary for efficiently creating sustainable design concepts using Systems Design Engineering principles.
  • Explain the significance of developing "design considerations" and requirements for Critical Systems in the design concept phase to foster design innovation.
  • Apply Systems Engineering principles and tools such as, System-Level Assessment (SLA) and System Design Assessment (SDA) to develop, refine, and mitigate risks associated with complex system-level design concepts.
  • Explain how a digital thread can be more effectively and comprehensively developed when using requirements and design considerations from the design concept phase.
  • Articulate the importance of involving cross-functional Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) in the evaluation of Critical Systems, utilizing tools like SLA to enhance understanding.
  • Explain the importance of having Cross-Functional Concept Design Reviews to ensure consistent integrity and robustness of design concepts, driven by meaningful "health metrics" that reflect the overall Design Quality.
  • Recognize the critical importance of developing and leveraging a robust Design Engineering organization to embrace First Time Right (FTR) design.
  • Navigate organizational cultural shifts necessary for the successful adoption of Systems Design Engineering principles.
