Systems Engineering Research Center (SERC) Workshop March 31 & April 1, 2009, Washington, DC
On March 31st and April 1st, 2009, a Systems Engineering Research Center (SERC) workshop will be held in Washington, DC to support the following SERC tasks:
• Systems Engineering Methods, Processes and Tools Evaluation
• Systems Engineering Effectiveness Measures
We invite industry and government practitioners to participate.
The SERC Workshop is primarily intended to obtain technical feedback on these tasks. However, it also provides an opportunity for external organizations (e.g. government organizations, FFRDCs, industry, professional societies, industry groups) to get a better idea of the SERC as a University Affiliated Research Center, and to articulate their Systems Engineering research and technology needs. The SERC is the nation's only DoD-funded University Affiliated Research Center focused on Systems Engineering Research.
