ENSE621
(Perm Req)
Systems Concepts, Issues, and Processes
Credits: 3
Grad Meth: Reg, Aud
Restriction: Permission of ENGR-Institute for Systems Research.
Also offered as: ENPM641.
Credit only granted for: ENPM641 or ENSE621.
An introduction to the professional and academic aspects of systems engineering. Topics include: systems engineering activities, opportunities and drivers; case studies of systems failures; models of system lifecycle development; introduction to model-based systems engineering; representations for system structure, system behavior, system interfaces and systems intergration; reactive (even-driven) systems, systems-of-systems, measures of system complexity; visual modeling of engineering systems with UML and SySML; simplified procedures for engineering optimization and tradeoff analysis. Software tools for visual modeling of systems with UML and SySML. Students will complete a project for the front-end development of an engineering system using ULM/SySML.
ENSE623
(Perm Req)
Systems Projects, Validation and Verification
Credits: 3
Grad Meth: Reg, Aud
Prerequisite: ENSE622 and ENPM642; and permission of ENGR-Institute for Systems Research.
Also offered as: ENPM643.
Credit only granted for: ENPM643, ENSE610, or ENSE623.
This course builds on material covered in ENSE621/ENPM641 and ENSE622/ENPM642. Topics wil cover established and emerging approaches to system validation and verification including; inspection, testing, and traceability; writing validation and verification plans; formal approaches to sytem validation and verification; specification-based testing; role of logic in system validation and verification; automation models of computation, timed automation; model-based design and model checking for reactive systems. Students will be introduced to software tools for specification-based testing, model-based testing, model-based design and model checking. Students will work in teams on semester-long projects in systems engineering design and formal approaches to system validation and verification.
ENSE626
(Perm Req)
System Life Cycle Analysis and Risk Management
Credits: 3
Grad Meth: Reg, Aud
Prerequisite: Permission of ENGR-Institute for Systems Research.
Also offered as: ENPM646.
This course covers topics related to estimating the costs and risks incurred through the lifetimes of projects, products and systems. In addition, treatment is given to methods that determine the drivers of costs and risks and facilitate determination of the most effective alternatives to reducing them. Also covered, are relevant analytic tools from probability and statistics and also important managerial and organizational concepts. Extensive use is made of case studies and examples from industry and government.
