Development of SEBoK v. 2.7
This version of the SEBoK was released 31 October 2022. This release included:
- A new article around loss-driven systems engineering, which specifically looks at system quality attributes like safety, security, and resilience through the lens of loss prevention.
- A new article on the history of systems engineering, which provides background on the early SE work leading up to more recent trends.
- Updates to the article on systems and industrial engineering.
- Minor updates to improve resources and align with evolving practices throughout part 3, including in the articles around systems engineering standards.
- Minor updates to the articles in Part 5, particularly the addition of new resources.
- Improvements in the SEBoK wiki infrastructure.
Governing Board for version 2.7
The three SEBoK steward organizations – the International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE), the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Systems Council (IEEE-SYSC), and Stevens Institute of Technology – provide the primary funding and resources needed to sustain and evolve the SEBoK and make it available as a free and open resource to all. The stewards appoint the BKCASE Governing Board to be their primary agents to oversee and guide the SEBoK. The stewards appoint the SEBoK Editor in Chief to manage the SEBoK and oversee the Editorial Board.
The BKCASE Governing Board included:
- Representing the The International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE)
- Art Pyster (Governing Board Chair), Emma Sparks
- Representing the Systems Engineering Research Center (SERC)
- Thomas McDermott, Cihan Dagli
- Representing the IEEE Systems Council (IEEE-SYSC)
- Stephanie White, Bob Rassa
Past governors include Andy Chen, Richard Fairley, Kevin Forsberg, Paul Frenz, Richard Hilliard, John Keppler, Bill Miller, David Newbern, Ken Nidiffer, Dave Olwell, Massood Towhidnejad, Jon Wade, David Walden, and Courtney Wright. The governors would especially like to acknowledge Andy Chen and Rich Hilliard, IEEE Computer Society, who were instrumental in helping the governors to work within the IEEE CS structure and who supported the SEBoK transition to the IEEE Systems Council.
SEBoK v. 2.7 Editorial Board
The SEBoK Editorial Board is chaired by the Editor in Chief, who provides the strategic vision for the SEBoK. The EIC is supported by a group of Editors, each of whom are responsible for a specific aspect of the SEBoK. The EIC and Editorial Board are supported by the Managing Editor, who handles all day-to-day operations. The EIC, Managing Editor, and Editorial Board are supported by a Student Editor, Madeline Haas, whose hard work and dedication are greatly appreciated.
