Systems and software engineering - System life cycle process

Monday 16 November 13:00-17:00 | Linkoping University |

Welcome to an afternoon with the international standard ISO/IEC/IEEE 15288:2015 Systems and software engineering - System life cycle process

This standard has been the guiding star for many years in industry and is now released in a fresh version. IDA's emeritus, Bud Lawson, was one of the architects behind this standard and is now giving us the background and theory. Thereafter we will have experience reports from representatives of three different companies.

This is a co-arrangement between IDA, IEEE Computer Society Sweden, and INCOSE Sweden.

Register free of charge before 2015-11-10

From the introduction: "This International Standard establishes a common process framework for describing the life cycle of man-made systems. It defines a set of processes and associated terminology for the full life cycle, including conception, development, production, utilization, support and retirement. This standard also supports the definition, control, assessment, and improvement of these processes. These processes can be applied concurrently, iteratively, and recursively to a system and its elements throughout the life cycle of a system."
