13:00 Welcome and Introduction (prof. dr. Matej Zajc)

  • Understanding System

Abstract: This seminar presents the basic concepts of systems and system engineering. The systems life cycle is as well presented. The lecture will introduce the different system engineering process such as conops, Vee model, spiral model and so forth.

  • Stakeholder and their requirements

Abstract: This seminar introduces the concepts stakeholders. High level requirements and detailed requirement will be as well presented. Particularly, from a systematic thinking of sustainability development perspective, a toolkit of compass will be introduced and thus a practice based on it for a stakeholder and tCoffee Breakheir requirement analysis could be carried out.

  • System concepts Design Process

Abstract:The concepts of system are as well presented. A set of methods to select the most suitable concepts are presented (Pugh Matrix)

  • System Integration, verification and validation

Abstract: The seminar introduces methods for system integration. Verification and validation of a system are as well presented

  • Group work presentation

Attendants, will present the finding of the team work project that will be the summary of the small exercise performed in a team after each session

  • Round table discussion
