The Guide to the Systems Engineering Body of Knowledge (SEBoK) has been, and continues to be, an immense undertaking involving the collective efforts of so many, including more than 75 authors, hundreds of reviewers, and numerous others, including: associate editors, assistant editors, technical editors, governors, wiki implementers, and graphical artists.
We acknowledge their contributions,
The SEBoK was developed by the Body of Knowledge and Curriculum to Advance Systems Engineering Project (BKCASE) (http://www.bkcase.org), which concurrently produced the Graduate Reference Curriculum for Systems Engineering (GRCSE). Nearly everyone involved in BKCASE has contributed to both products. Hence, the acknowledgements generally do not distinguish between contributions to SEBoK and GRCSE.
The Department of Defense (DoD) recognizes the importance of SEBoK to its own workforce development and has provided substantial financial support and partnership to the BKCASE project. The office of the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Systems Engineering (DASD(SE)) is the original Department of Defense sponsor for the BKCASE Project. DASD(SE) graciously provided much of the funding for SEBoK development through their Systems Engineering Research Center (SERC) (see http://www.sercuarc.org). Those funds have primarily paid for the time spent by the SEBoK leadership, enabled the many volunteer authors to conduct quarterly physical workshops, and provided for the technical and administrative infrastructure to conduct such a complex distributed project. DASD(SE) has not determined the content of the SEBoK, but instead has allowed the author team and the community to determine what the SEBoK should contain. Without this support over the life of the project, the creation of the SEBoK would not have been possible. Moreover, DASD(SE) has continued to provide substantial support to BKCASE in 2013 through the SERC. Special thanks go to Stephen Welby, Kristen Baldwin, Nicholas Torelli, Don Gelosh, Scott Lucero, and Darren Dusza for their support throughout the BKCASE lifetime.
This material is based upon work supported, in whole or in part, by the U.S. Department of Defense through the Systems Engineering Research Center (SERC) under Contract H98230-08-D-0171. SERC is a federally funded University Affiliated Research Center managed by Stevens Institute of Technology. Any opinions, findings, conclusions, or recommendations expressed in this material are those of the author(s) and do not necessarily reflect the views of the United States Department of Defense.
Beginning in January of 2013, the SEBoK began operating under a new governance structure, led by INCOSE, IEEE-CS, and the SERC acting jointly as stewards. Under this new structure, the Editor-in-Chief and Co-Editor-in-Chief lead the newly formed BKCASE Editorial Board, which is responsible for soliciting new and revised SEBoK articles, and ensuring those articles are peer-reviewed and meet the quality standards expected of all SEBoK articles. The associate editors quickly became integral to SEBoK v. 1.1 and subsequent releases and we thank them for their leadership and dedication.
The Editorial Board members are listed below. For more information on these individuals, please see Meet the Editors.
- Richard Adcock, Cranfield University
- Barry Boehm, University of Southern California
- Cihan Dagli, Missouri University of Science and Technology
- Judith Dahmann, MITRE Corporation
- Heidi Davidz, Aerojet Rocketdyne
- Dov Dori, Technion Israel Institute of Technology
- Timothy Ferris, University of South Australia
- Michael Henshaw, Loughborough University
- James Martin, "The Aerospace Corporation"
- Chris Paredis, Georgia Institute of Technology
- Gregory Parnell, University of Arkansas
- Ricardo Pineda, "Stevens Institute of Technology"
- Garry Roedler, Lockheed Martin
- Brian Sauser, "University of North Texas"
- Samuel Seymour, Johns Hopkins University
- Ariela Sofer, George Mason University
- Ricardo Valerdi, University of Arizona
- Brian White,CAU>SE
- Ken Zemrowski, TASC
The core staff (except for Alice Squires, who has taken a new position), who are central to SEBoK development, became assistant editors in the new governance structure. They have been and continue to be the bedrock on which the entire SEBoK effort rests.
- Stephanie Enck, Naval Postgraduate School
- Devanandham Henry, Stevens Institute of Technology
- Nicole Hutchison, Stevens Institute of Technology
The stewards also set up the BKCASE Governing Board to be their primary agents to oversee and guide the SEBoK and its companion BKCASE product, the GRCSE.
- INCOSE (past and present)
- Kevin Forsberg, Bill Miller, Dave Newbern, Dave Walden, Courtney Wright
- IEEE Computer Society
- Richard Fairley, Ken Nidiffer
- David Olwell, Art Pyster
Finally, special thanks go out to INCOSE Presidents Samantha Robitaille and John Thomas for their early and constant support to the SEBoK development.
Part Team Leads
The SEBoK is divided into seven primary Parts (see SEBoK Table of Contents). Through the release of SEBoK v. 1.0, someone graciously volunteered to lead a team of authors in writing the articles and coordinating article integration for each of the Parts. This was an enormous amount of work. We would like to thank each of these individuals for their time, dedication, and leadership. In addition, a member of the editorial staff supported each of the part team leads.
- Part 1 - Barry Boehm with support from Art Pyster
- Part 2 - Richard Adcock with support from Nicole Hutchison
- Part 3 - Garry Roedler with support from Jim Anthony
- Part 4 - Harold (Bud) Lawson with support from David Olwell
- Part 5 - Art Pyster with support from Alice Squires and Devanandham Henry
- Part 6 - David Olwell with support from Art Pyster
- Part 7 - Heidi Davidz with support from Alice Squires and Devanandham Henry
As a primarily volunteer effort, BKCASE has depended on dozens of authors from around the world to provide their own time and expenses. Each of the individuals listed below has worked many hours to develop and improve SEBoK and GRCSE. Without each of them, it would have been impossible to succeed. Many of them have been supported by their organizations during this effort, including support for travel and labor, and we also gratefully acknowledge the organizational contribution.

Partner organizations supported the development of the SEBoK by providing personnel and opportunities to discuss the SEBoK in open forums such as conferences and workshops, and providing valued feedback on draft SEBoK materials. Some organizations have also chosen to have an official representative(s) participate in BKCASE, as shown below. A special thanks to our partners.
- The Institute of Industrial Engineers (IIE). The official IIE representative was Johann "Hans" Demmel.
- The Association for Computing Machinery (ACM). The official ACM Representative was Andrew McGettrick.
- The National Defense Industrial Association (NDIA) Systems Engineering Division. The official NDIA Systems Engineering Division representative was Garry Roedler.
In addition, most authors came from organizations that, although not officially affiliated with BKCASE, nevertheless supported author time and expenses to participate. Collectively, those organizations provided the majority of the labor and expenses that went into creating the SEBoK.
The transition from a traditional document to a wiki-based platform was a long one. We are tremendously grateful to the folks who have helped us install, manage, and update the wiki:
- Nicole Hutchison (team lead), Stevens Institute of Technology
- Stephanie Enck (co-lead), Naval Postgraduate School
- Devanandham Henry, Stevens Institute of Technology
- Hans-Peter de Koning, European Space Agency
- Paola Di Maio, University of Strathclyde
- Ray Jorgensen, Rockwell Collins
- Sanford Friedenthal, SAF Consulting
- Jude Ken-Kwofie, Stevens Institute of Technology
- Steven Mitchell, Lockheed Martin
- Robin Valeson, formerly of Stevens Institute of Technology
The wiki is currently supported and hosted by Stevens Institute of Technology. Special thanks go to the Stevens' IT organization.
Every article went through rounds of technical editing to improve writing quality and consistency. Thanks go to:
- Emily Leach
- Abraham Raher
- Renee Malove
- Justin Gercken

Reviewers are critical to the success and growth of the SEBoK. By providing feedback that represents the diversity of views and opinions on systems engineering, reviewers help the author team identify and describe ground truths for SE as well as areas of contention. The reviewers who provided feedback for earlier versions are listed in Table 3, below. In addition, there are a number of other reviewers who provided their comments directly on the wiki with only a user ID (and not a full name) and reviewers who were part of a group that provided a collective review; these reviewers are not listed in Table 3. Many thanks to all reviewers!
The author team would like to particularly acknowledge the efforts of several INCOSE working groups (WGs) who provided feedback:
- Systems Science WG
- Architecture WG
- Requirements WG
- Decision Analysis WG
- In Service WG
- Lean Systems Engineering WG
- System of Systems WG
- Process Improvement WG
