Development of SEBoK v. 1.4

From SEBoK
Jump to: navigation, search

This version of the SEBoK was released 29 June 2015. This is a minor release of the SEBoK which includes changes related to ISO/IEC/IEEE 15288:2015 standard, updated articles in the areas of System Architecture, Life-Cycle processes, System of Systems, Competencies, Ethics and MBSE, as well as three new case studies.

Content and Feature Updates for v. 1.4

Summary of changes for SEBoK v1.4, see letter from the editor for a wider discussion of the changes and future plans.

A small but significant change has been made in SEBoK Part 2. This has been renamed from Systems to Foundations of Systems Engineering. This change reflects the focus of part 2 on the wider knowledge sources which underpin and enable good SE practice. The Part 2 Introduction and What is a System? articles has also been updated to reflect this focus.

The most significant change to the SEBoK for v1.4 is in Part 3: SE and Management. A number of the technical and project process articles in SEBoK have been updated to reflect the revisions of ISO/IEC/IEEE 15288:2015.This includes update of all those articles which reference the standard to update the citation.

Changes to ISO/IEC/IEEE 15288 are more strongly focused on the relationships between system architectures and requirements; and on the transformation of business strategy into levels of stakeholder and system needs and requirements. To better describe how these process activities relate to each other and to the selected life cycle model for a SoI, we have brought together overview material on life cycle, life cycle process relationships and enterprise application into a new Knowledge Area in Part 3.

The Introduction to Life Cycle Processes KA contains 3 new articles:

The other specific changes to articles within part 3 are summaries below:

Some other small changes have been made to the following articles:
