In November, the members of the Swiss Chapter of INCOSE were invited to vote for the new committee and to review the Chapter Plan for 2018. 26 members casted their vote: 25 agreed with the proposition for the new committee, one abstained. The newly elected committee and the working group leaders are announced >>>here<<<. We are happy to welcome three new members on the committee: Annette Greil, Pierfelice Ciancia and David Zuend. The strategy of the SSSE for 2018 can be found in the picture below.

Planning of SWISSED18

We are preparing for SWISSED18, so should you. Mark your Agenda for Monday, September 3rd, 2018. Theme will be "5 years of SWISSED" all key notes of the previous years will give exciting talks in the main track of the event. Parallel to the main track their will be "world cafe"-like workshops. More information will follow soon on

Interesting resources from our partners

We want to raise the awareness for the various resources of our sponsors:

  • Dassault Systèmes has an interesting white paper on how to accelerate medical device development through systems engineering. The file can be >>>downloaded<<<.
  • Siemens provides a white paper on the application of Polarion in the railway domain "Ausschreibungen gewinnen und erfolgreich umsetzen - Neue Chancen im Schienen-Personennahverkehr". The file can be >>>downloaded<<<. More white papers can be downloaded in the white paper section (sign up required). You can sign up for one of the free webinars on demand on various Systems Engineering topics.
  • INCOSE hosts several international working groups, who meet and collaborate on diverse systems engineering topics. We want to make you aware of the resources on the working group on Agile Systems and Systems Engineering (gives you background information on the buzz), the working group on Very Small Entities (VSE) and small projects (gives nice deployment packages for small projects) and the working group on MBSE Patterns (enables the successfull and economical use of MBSE). The comments in brackets are derived from the working group meetings at the INCOSE International Workshop 2018, which took place in January in Jacksonville (FL, USA).

Systems Engineering job postings in LinkedIn group
