Abstract
This presentation will address two aspects of standards and systems engineering. The primary focus will be on systems engineering standards, INCOSE’s role in influencing those standards, and the status of some of those efforts. Recognizing that the solutions developed by systems engineers will usually involve standards and regulations, Ken will also discuss some of the challenges of incorporating non-SE standards in SE efforts.
