Mastering Systems Integration via USN

Tue, 09/22/2020 to Thu, 12/31/2020
Online dialogue sessions on: 7,13 & 15 Oct. Remote course on: 21, 22 & 23 Oct.

What is this course all about?

Systems integration requires cooperation from many project members, such as project leaders, product managers, architects, lead designers, integrators, and testers. Integration is more than a simple aggregation as the reverse of the decomposition. When system integration is done well, the customer gets the right product with the right dynamic behavior as expected within time

The learning objectives are:

  • Understand the underlying principles of systems integration and early validation with a result to be able to explain how they are mitigated in your own context
  • Understand professional views/roles with a result to be able to map those on the roles you have in your company
  • Align different team members (learning objective for teams)
  • Create an usable integration sequence and project plan (learning objective for teams)
  • Know when to reflect & adapt during the project (learning objective for teams)

Is this the course for you?
