Facilitating the Agile Systems Engineering Specification Workshop
Specification Workshops provide a lean-agile approach to creating and evolving engineering specifications. Workshops produce a SysML model following a standard, MBSE approach to modeling system structure, behavior, and information. These face-to-face meetings create a shared understanding across customers, users, domain experts, product owners and teams. They align everyone on a common approach to building a solution and record that record decisions in a standard notation.
This courses teaches future workshop coaches and participants how to incrementally build system specifications that define system context, behavioral response to stimulus, structural design and interfaces. And it teaches the mechanics of running a workshop through a lengthy simulation and how to perform workshops as part of the regular agile development flow.
Upon completion of the course, students will be able to:
- Collaboratively create a shared understanding of system structure, behavior, and information
- Record decisions as a single source of truth using standard notation
- Use emergent specifications to drive the agile development process
- Be able to coach a Systems Engineering Workshop for an agile, cross functional program
Lead engineers/architects responsible for a system’s technical solution as well as those who will participate in a the Specification Workshops.
This course will be taught by a 321 Gang Lean-Agile Systems Engineering Consultant.
