"Increasing the Value of Systems Engineering's Portfolio to Our
Aerospace - Commercial - Defense - Enterprise - Service

The intent underlying the theme of this conference - "Increasing the Value
of Systems Engineering's Portfolio to Our Stakeholders" - is to capture the
essence of the INCOSE mission and goals, while giving prospective speakers
latitude to cover a wide array of relevant systems engineering domains and

Key elements of this theme include:
- Portfolio: We, systems engineers, provide a "portfolio" of products,
processes, tools, and services to the programs we serve. Are our customers
"busting down the doors" trying to get our stuff?
- Value: Since the successful implementation of the Systems Engineering
process is not universal, we need to increase the value of our products,
processes, tools, and services.
- Stakeholders: Our stakeholders include all who depend on us to perform
systems engineering to deliver a quality product within cost and schedule,
not just the program manager, or the user.

These concepts and issues are present in the commercial and service
industries as well as traditional aerospace and defense industries. This
conference presents an opportunity for practitioners in each industry to
learn from the perspectives others.

This Mini-Conference will address a 'self examination' of Systems
Engineering by decomposing our theme into three subthemes.

(1) How good is our portfolio?
Just how good are the elements of our Systems Engineering portfolio? How
effective are our measurements in assessing their/our value? What is the
value that our customers place on the portfolio?

(2) How can we increase the effectiveness of our portfolio?
How can we increase the effectiveness of our portfolio performance? How can
we acquire and sustain a deeper and more consistent penetration into product
development and support? How can we improve the alignment, collaboration,
and integration between adjacent projects and/or business segments?

(3) How can we increase our customers' demand for our portfolio?
How can we increase our customers' perceived value of our portfolio? Is our
portfolio agile and flexible enough that our customers perceive it as a
'light and easy to use' multipurpose tool? How can we create a customer pull
for our portfolio of products and services?

The above sub-themes envelop such topics as:
* Examining the alignment, collaboration, and integration between adjacent
business segments
* Assessing the measurement and correlation between systems engineering
performance, product, and service success
* Architecting the front end for optimum performance, project execution,
and customer satisfaction
* Systems engineering for value-adding capabilities
* Analyzing systems engineering effectiveness in industry, government, and
commercial customers
* Approaches to balance program cost, performance, schedule, and risk
* Systems engineering: learning from the private sector

Presentations will be limited to 20-25 minutes with 5-10 minutes of Q&A, for
a total time of 30 minutes.

Please send a one-page or less summary of your presentation to the Technical
Chair, Richard G. Cline. (email:
Submittal deadline: July 16, 2010
You will be notified of acceptance by: August 06, 2010
Your final presentation is due by: September 24, 2010

When you are notified of acceptance, the presentation format will be
provided. Ideally, all communications will be through email. If this is not
possible, please advise immediately so that we can make arrangements to
accommodate your needs.
