Thoughts on the ASEC2015 – Day Two
INCOSE UK Annual Systems Engineering Conference ‘Systems Engineering comes of age’
- First day developments compiled here:
Introduction to Second Day
- Keynote Speaker: Prof Alan Winfield, Director of the Science Communication Unit at theUniversity of the West of England
- It takes great effort to develop a robot do a simple task that would come naturally to small child. And then it can only do that, nothing more.
- We need to give our machines several kinds of intelligence only to start to resemble to how a human being would operate.
- Bina48 is frustrating, Siri is annoyingly bossy: Bina applying for a job -- full interview:
- Data, data everywhere. But how can we make machines think?
- About generalisation and evolution.
- There's one thing would never come to my mind: put a simulation of a robot within a robot to simulate the workings of a robot that behaves like an intelligent robot.
- In conclusion:
Unravelling the Knowns and Unknowns
- This again was a very interesting and engaging talk. We learned that Rob Behan bought a bread mixing/baking machine. We suspect it's not intelligent..yet.
- Yes yes yes. If you can't communicate / share understanding it's no value! And it's showing your working https://twitter.com/IanJRaper/status/666939906791444481 …
Model Based Systems Engineering in Automotive Industry: Challenges and Solutions

Integrating an Upgraded Constituent System in a System of Systems: A SysML Case Study
We Chose MBSE: What‘s next?
Meanwhile, in the Main Theatre:
Systems Engineering in Non-Traditional Situations
- Finding the 0.01%, The England Rugby Player Pathway: Systems Engineering in Sport
- A novel methodology for the application of Middle-Out,Model Based Systems Engineering Techniques for City WasteManagement Systems Development
Integrating Systems Engineering with Project Management
- Application of a systems approach to exploit value from coherence in UK Defence
- UK Defence is an increasingly complex enterprise endeavouring to deliver capability within a constrained budget. Key issues and risks for UK Defence are the incoherences that emerge in such a large enterprise and the missed opportunities for a common approach. To address this, the MOD is establishing a single integrated framework of internal controls as part of newly established corporate governance arrangements covering the entire department.
- Valuing our place in the world -- Using Systems Engineering in Programme and Project Management
- With a “coming of age” comes an increasing sense of awareness, and of responsibilities outside one’s immediate circle. For systems engineers, this is where the discipline is able to fulfil its potential to support, define and drive an organisation’s activities to solve complex problems. Programmes and projects need both technical and managerial leaders who understand and support each other’s needs and challenges, and who consequently can work in an integrated way to achieve success.
