From SEBoK
Jump to navigation Jump to search

This version of the SEBoK was released 15 October 2021. This release included:

  • An update of the main page - we have taken your feedback to streamline the SEBoK landing page to get you into the content you're interested in more quickly.
  • New Editor's Corner - the former Letter from the Editor is now the Editor's Corner, refocused on the current and emerging trends in systems engineering. Check it out for our Editor in Chief's current thoughts on the metaverse and the impact on systems.
  • New sponsors and sponsorship packages - you will notice a number of new sponsors and updates to the sponsorship packages available. Please join us in thanking our sponsors for their support of the SEBoK!
  • New navigation - the left-hand menu has gone through a major overhaul to make it easier for you find the information you need and retire information that is no longer as relevant, as well as to load more quickly.
  • The SEBoK users provided dozens of comments - from minor corrections to recommendations on terminology and reference updates to broad discussions about the transformation of the discipline. The Editorial Board has addressed all resolved comments in the wiki and will carry forward any comments still under discussion in version 2.6.
  • Behind the scenes, we updated to the latest version of MediaWiki, tightened up our IT infrastructure, and made some adjustments to improve performance.

Governing Board for version 2.5

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. 2.5 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.
