Welcome


The Systems Engineering Society of Australia (SESA) is proud to host the Australian Systems Engineering Workshop (ASEW) in Melbourne from 28th to 29th October 2019.

If you are involved in the delivery of new capability or the provision of critical infrastructure services or even at the forefront of the Sustainability Era then the ASEW will contribute significantly to your journey.  Whether you are a seasoned practitioner of Systems Engineering or have recently become introduced to the methodology these two days will add direct value to the challenges you face every day.  Through various modes of workshop engagement this event provides access to Peers and technical specialists across numerous industries to breakdown and explore present day and real world issues.  As a minimum you will walk away with a deeper understanding of many of the complex or complicated engineering topics being faced by our nation but more than likely you will gain a different perspective or alternative approach that will stimulate change and promote a new way of solving YOUR current problems. This is the power of Systems Thinking within the collective experience of our national Systems Engineering cohort.

The 2018 ASEW was held in Adelaide and saw the continuation of the multi-stream approach to ensure topics and themes of relevance to all participants.  This was a very successful event and saw a record number of attendees participating and actively contributing to the facilitated workshops.  The industries represented included Transport, Healthcare, Telecommunications, Energy and Space.  In addition to the workshops and initiatives discussed at ASEW18, SESA members participate in a number of International Working Groups (through INCOSE) which are used to catalyse the development of technical product and inform the Systems Engineering Body of Knowledge. Some of these working groups include

  • Complex Systems
  • System-of-Systems
  • Requirements
  • Project Management – Systems Engineering Integration
  • Model-based Conceptual Design
  • Engineering Process Standards

This year we will continue from the success of ASEW18 and leverage the 2 established and recognised SESA Working Groups within Transport and Telecommunications to further explore the progress and uptake of Systems Engineering within their respective industries.  In addition to this and to ensure a program built to deliver on YOUR professional needs; If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can register your interest for ASEW19.
