Systems Engineering Foundation
Duration – 2 days
Lessons 1 and 2
Lessons 1 and 2 explore what we mean when we say ‘systems engineering’ and examine the major principles. Lesson 1 examines through-life processes. Key topics covered within Lesson 1 include user requirements, validation and verification, configuration control and design processes. For Lesson 2, we look further at the through-life process and cover topics such as characteristics, decision gates, life cycle stages, life cycle comparisons, life cycle approaches, storyboard exercises and examples.
Lessons 3 and 4
Lesson 3 focuses on the pivotal role of requirements analysis, capture and management. During the lesson, we examine the concept plus the analysis process including input, controls and outputs.
Other key topics include requirements process activities, how to carry out requirements analysis, characteristics of requirements statements, rules for writing requirements, requirements vocabulary and the use of requirements management systems.
Lesson 4 explores configuration management, change management and configuration control. Key topics include configuration management processes, baselines, change requests, configuration control, change control, configuration status and accounting.
The final lesson of the course explores test and acceptance procedures including test categories, validation and verification, test cases and test scripts.

CSEP Course Information
Mark Williamson has over 30 years of engineering experience. He started his career in the Royal Air Force with a grounding in airborne radar, communications and flight systems. Subsequent tours on multiple aircraft types reinforced these engineering principles with supervisory roles in aircraft and avionic servicing. Mark then migrated into software engineering ultimately acting initially as Test Director and as Software team leader for Tactical Data Links (TDLs) on the UK E-3D Airborne Warning and Control System (AWACS) Mission system. With 15 years experience in the implementation, and interoperability testing of TDLs. Mark transitioned to SyntheSys and has been using his software and systems engineering skills to develop an innovative standards based interoperability tool, for the management of standards and military platform implementation.
Mark is the lead instructor for SyntheSys’ systems engineering courses and recently delivered a systems engineering course to the United Nations International Atomic Energy Agency.
Sam Southwell brings over 22 years experience in the Royal Air Force, including 9 years at a front line Tornado Squadron gaining experience on the full compliment of Avionics systems as fitted to the aircraft. Following this he completed 5 years of service as an instructor being responsible for Avionics training and course design. Finally moving to TDLs, primarily as a Link 16 engineer, he has extensive experience in Data collection, analysis and front line engineering support to the RAF, Royal Navy platforms and Army TDL systems. Since leaving the Service he continued in TDLs working within the company training team and on Problem Evaluation Services and UK support to the Joint International Configuration Review Board (JICRB) and MIDS International Review Board (MIRB) Link16 international conferences.
