  • R&D engineers, managers, executives who have to develop a new product or a new powertrain.

Level : Foundation

Course Content

  • Fundamentals of systems engineering

      • History of Systems Engineering.
      • System definition.
      • Life cycle.
      • Engineering system.
      • Engineering system in automotive industry.
      • Processes and objects (product, process, service).
      • V cycle: engineering (specify, design), physical parts, integration (integrate, validate, justify).
      • Other methods of product development.
  • Tree decomposition of a new system

      • A system tree.
      • Product development tree and decomposition by levels.
      • Development process tree.
      • Associated systems.
      • Design by steps/rank of maturity.
      • Simultaneous development of the product and the process.
  • Engineering process

      • Define the need.
      • Specify: define the requirements (technical specification).
      • Design from a functional and organic point of view a new system to meet the requirements: internal functional analysis, external functional analysis, FMEA, functional architectures, organic architectures and interfaces.
      • Evaluation and optimization.
      • Integration and validation.
  • Project management process

      • Product and process planning.
      • Steering and control of deadlines.
      • Steering and control of costs.
      • Steering and control of quality.
      • Steering and control of risks.
      • Requirements management: process from the need for the client to the requirement.
      • Configuration management.
      • Diversity management.
  • Application on a case study
