INCOSE Future of Systems Engineering (FuSE) - SE Foundations

In this presentation an update on the INCOSE Future of Systems Engineering (Program) -
SE Foundations stream will be given.

The SE Foundations stream has its basis in both theory and industrial practice. The
intermediate stream goal is to assess the adequacy of the foundations and identify gaps to determine future directions. Special consideration will be given to the theoretical foundation of the SE as a discipline on one hand and the practical application foundations using principles and heuristics on the other hand.
