Five years ago, Erik Herzog and I had the idea for a special conference tour in northern Europe. The Nordic Systems Engineering Tour was and is still a great success. Organized by the local chapters of INCOSE in Finland, Sweden, Denmark, Germany, and Poland it is an event from and for the systems engineering community to share knowledge and to make long lasting contacts with other system engineers. The important dates - Mark your calendars: The Call for Presenters ends at Feb...

End of this week is the deadline for the Call for Presenters for the 3rd Nordic Systems Engineering Tour. Share your knowledge and join the tour. The NoSE Tour is a non-commercial community event organized by four local chapters of INCOSE. It is a 1-day conference traveling from Hamburg to Copenhagen via Stockholm to Helsinki. Find more information about the tour on the official website: www.nordic-systems-engineering-tour.com. Reports from the last tours NoSE 2013 and NoSE 2014. See you, Tim ...

What a great week! Summer, Fun, Great Cities and Systems Engineering. The 2nd Nordic Systems Engineering Tour from Hamburg via Copenhagen and Stockholm to Helsinki has just finished. Four tour speakers who did the whole tour and several local speaker gave great performances and shared their knowledge and experience with nearly 200 participants. And vice versa during the discussions participants gave an insight to their knowledge and experience. I've learned a lot! The NoSE Tour is a non-commercial event organized by four...

In many respects, the future of systems engineering can be said to be “model-based.” (INCOSE Vision 2020) Model Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) is a key technology to respond to the need of developing more and more complex systems in more and more complex (network) organizations. I work in the MBSE domain since 10 years. I've written a book about MBSE with SysML, parts of the SysML specification and several papers. These are static unidirectional medias. I like to talk about MBSE in...
