Systems Thinking Workshop: System thinking has been touted as the “Fifth Discipline” in Peter Senge’s bestselling classic book. This workshop will teach you some essential principles and concepts of systems and how to use these in a “systemic” fashion to improve your ability to think about systems in a holistic manner. You will learn about the PICARD Theory, the Seven Samurai Framework and the Knowledge Pyramid to guide the converting of data into information which is applied in the discovery of knowledge that is used in guiding decisions. The workshop will allow you spend about half of our time working exercises to fully understand and appreciate these ideas.
This workshop, presented by James Martin, will be held at:
Johns Hopkins University
Applied Physics Lab
Montpelier 6 Building
7651 Montpelier Road
Overview of an Emerging Standard on Architecture Process – ISO/IEC 42020
By: Dr. James Martin, Principal Engineer, The Aerospace Corporation
Presentation: A new, emerging standard on architecture practices is under development as ISO/IEC 42020. This presentation provides an overview of the key concepts in this standard and the rationale for these ideas. The standard defines six architecture-related processes: governance, management, conceptualization, evaluation, elaboration, and enablement. These are comprised of 37 activities, having five to eight tasks specified for each activity. It is expected that these processes will be incorporated into the next version of INCOSE’s Systems Engineering Handbook and in the Guide to the Systems Engineering Body of Knowledge. This standard can be used as a foundation for organizational training and guidebooks on architecture management and development.
Note: Students receive free meal, compliments of 2HB and ITC.
The International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE) Certified Systems Engineering Professional (CSEP) is a highly sought after certification for those engineers seeking recognition for their education, experience, and knowledge in the highly competitive field of Systems Engineering. Obtaining a CSEP is not easy, but that is what makes it so valuable. You have to demonstrate your real world experience via a lengthy application and three references. Then you need to pass a two-hour, 120-question, multiple-choice exam. This course helps prepare potential candidates for this demanding process by becoming familiar with the latest version of the INCOSE SE Handbook, which is the basis for the examination. Students will also learn the requirements for a successful CSEP application. Upon completion of this class, the participant will:
Have a good grasp of the fundamentals of Systems Engineering, including the understanding of systems engineering management and systems engineering processes, from the INCOSE perspective
Be able to apply the INCOSE SE Handbook to a project
Understand INCOSE CSEP application process
Be well prepared for the CSEP exam
Prerequisites: Students should have at least 5 years work experience in Systems Engineering and/or related engineering disciplines. Although not a requirement the student is encouraged to join INCOSE. INCOSE members will be able to get the latest information on the CSEP process and INCOSE System Engineering Handbook, via INCOSE Connect.
The Washington Metropolitan Area Chapter of INCOSE is offering a Free INCOSE ASEP/CSEP Exam on October 29 at George Mason University and the Chesapeake Chapter is providing free bus transportation to and from the George Mason University test site.
REGISTRATION FOR THIS EXAM HAS BEEN EXTENDED UNTIL SEPTEMBER 16, 2016
This October, INCOSE Washington Metropolitan Area (WMA) Chapter is offering a FREE paper based Systems Engineering Professional examination session proctored directly by the INCOSE Certification Administration. The exam will fulfill the knowledge testing requirements for INCOSE CSEP (Certified Systems Engineering Professional) and ASEP (Associate Systems Engineering Professional) credentials.
After passing the exam, you can apply for CSEP or ASEP certification based on your level of education and professional experience. There are a limited number of seats available for this exam session.
FREE COACH BUS Transportation will be provided by the Chesapeake Chapter. The bus will depart Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory Building 1 (by the flag poles) on Saturday at 8:00 am returning at 1:00 pm. Breakfast and boxed lunch will also be provided free of charge. Register for the free bus transportation to and from George Mason by 22 October by clicking the “Register” link below.

The Chesapeake Chapter of INCOSE serves the systems engineering community in Baltimore, MD and its suburbs. INCOSE is an international professional organization dedicated to advancing the practice of Systems Engineering.
The Chesapeake Chapter is very active and prides itself in the many endeavors it has undertaken. An organization such as ours relies on the willingness of its membership to put as much effort into it as they receive in return. We enjoy a high membership renewal rate because the members are involved and receive value for their time and money. Consider being part of this thriving organization.
The Chesapeake Chapter is the Northern and Central Maryland area chapter of INCOSE, formed to support INCOSE in the expansion of systems engineering understanding, practice, definition, and evolution. In addition, the Chesapeake Chapter is responsible for the expansion of INCOSE through increased membership of both individuals and organizations. We will further the systems engineering effort through an aggressive approach to informing the local, national, and international systems engineering community of our highly professional organization dedicated to systems engineering excellence. We will respond to our stakeholders' needs with enthusiasm and will provide them with and/or develop the information that meets their specific requirements. We will focus on understanding and disseminating the changing role of systems engineering as we enter the 21st century. We will meet these needs through providing a forum and communications channel to exchange systems engineering information, questions, concepts, application to future technologies, etc. on a local level, providing a service that cannot be achieved at the national and international level.
The Chesapeake Chapter of INCOSE is proud to recognize the following organizations for sponsoring our endeavors to expanding the understanding and appreciation of Systems Engineering in the local area:
