  2. Foundations of the System Engineering and Architecture Frameworks


This two days course allows participants to acquire a common terminology of the System Engineering, familiarize themselves with the system vision, principles and state-of-the-art procedures according to ISO / IEC 15288 and ISO / IEC / IEEE 42010 standards as well as architectural frameworks of System Engineering such as ( DoDAF, MoDAF and NAF…) and how to align their viewpoints using the Enterprise Architecture Frameworks Methodologies such as the Open Group’s TOGAF’s ADM (Architecture Development Method).



Any actor involved in the System Engineering domain : System Architects, System Analysts, System Engineers,

Managers having the responsibility to let all SE actors adhere to a corporate approach.
