History of INCOSE
In 1990, in the US a professional society for systems engineering, the National Council on Systems Engineering (NCOSE), was founded.
The '''International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE)'' is a Non-profit membership organization dedicated to the advancement of Systems_engineering. Founded in 1990, INCOSE now has over six thousand members representing a broad spectrum – from student to senior practitioner, from technical engineer to program and corporate management, from science and engineering to business development. Members work together to advance their technical knowledge, exchange ideas with colleagues, and collaborate to advance systems engineering. INCOSE's mission is to advance the state of the art and practice of systems engineering in industry, academia, and government by promoting interdisciplinary, scaleable approaches to produce technologically appropriate solutions that meet societal needs.
As a result of growing involvement from systems engineers outside of the U.S., the name of the organization was changed to the International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE) in 1995.
The fundamental aim of the INCOSE UK Chapter is to promote the definition, recognition and practice of world class systems engineering within British and Worldwide Industry, and Government.
To provide a focus for debating all issues of relevant to systems engineering and exchange of knowledge
To promote improvements in systems engineering education and research and to establish standards
To improve the professional status of all persons engaged in the practice of systems engineering
To encourage Government and Industrial support for research and educational programme's that will improve the systems engineering process and its practices.
Practical solutions for practicing systems engineers
We have a strong track record of delivering successful production solutions. Over the past twenty years Graham Debling Precision has had experience in developing new products with many customers, along with the design and manufacture of a number of own brand products.
Our technical know-how and problem solving ability ensures that our ideas are well engineered tested and optimized for production.
A Systems approach to Systems Engineering
As broad a membership as possible - we can all learn from each other.
Between 2003 and 2012 membership has grown from 350+ members to 700, having started with 50 at our inaugural event in September 1994. Members come from diverse backgrounds covering purchasers, system developers and academics. Industries represented include aerospace, defence, transportation, construction and telecommunications. A goal for the UK Chapter is to achieve a steady and sustained increase in the number of members, and to further broaden the base of that membership to include new industries. If you undertake tasks which are characterised by the interaction of multiple factors across multiple domains, often exhibiting less obvious behaviour, you're either doing or need to be doing some systems engineering, and INCOSE exists to help you.
