Capability Assessment for Systems Engineering

When starting in system engineering there is usually the continuous improvement aspect that needs to be addressed. In order to continuously improve the process, you need to be able to measure the effectiveness of the current effort. This paper will present a methodology linking system engineering to the capability maturity model developed by Carnegie Mellon University. Furthermore, this approach can be used to evaluate the system engineering maturity of an organisation prior to implementing any of the system Engineering processes READ MORE
