SELECTED - SSSE Evening Event label

SSSE names the series of lectures and evening events with the label “SELECTED”. Among the companies willing to host and sponsor a lecture, SSSE evaluates and selects the most interesting and Systems Engineering relevant lectures on methodology and best practices from industry. Presenters and companies receive a special acknowledgement about their contribution to the renowned SSSE events series since 2014. For future SSSE evening events visit the SELECTED section.

SSSE Evening Event - Aircraft Cabin Modifications: lecture and hangars visit at SR Technics

  • Part 1: Sales perspectives on MRO moving towards complex cabin modifications - by Oladi Olukolu
  • Part 2: Engineering integration challenges on such cabin modifications - by Anthony Soo
  • This would be followed by a tour of SR Technics to be led by Nicolas Hasler

Recapitulation of the first SSSE evening event in 2017 at Siemens

David Almer from Siemens EMEA Centre of Excellence in Brussels presented MBSE Co-Simulation at the Siemens premises in Zurich in front of a large audience of Engineers and Managers. On the example of the design of electrical powers systems for aircrafts he explained a Model Based Systems Engineering Co-Simulation approach for Aerospace.

Remark: The event calendar on the SSSE website covers a whole range of events in 2017 and covers all events. The SSSE Evening events for 2017 are listed as a slimmer overview in the SELECTED section.

SE Round Table

Frauke and Jesko invite frequently to the group meetings of the round table of systems engineering in Bern. In April, the SE round table picked up the tradition of having workshop style discussions on a certain topic (e.g. the business case of systems engineering). Follow MeetUp if you would like to participate. Hope to see you soon at one of the round tables.

Systems Engineering Certification

At SWISSED17, you will be able to obtain information about SE Certification in Europe at a dedicated booth. As mentioned already earlier this year, attendees at SWISSED17 are invited to take the INCOSE knowledge exam and get one step closer to INCOSE Certification at the ASEP or CSEP level. There is no cost to participate in this INCOSE / SSSE activity. Exam results will be emailed a month later. If you intend to become a certified systems engineer, do not miss this opportunity and register for the exam. Don’t hesitate to contact us, if you have any questions about the certification process. Or join us at any of the upcoming events and we can discuss your questions in person.
