  • Joseph-Malherbe, SM (2011 ISEM, 2011-09)
    Systems engineering is a generally accepted methodology in military development. Systems engineering is an interdisciplinary approach to realize successful systems. In most commercial organizations systems engineering is ...
  • Oosthuizen, R; Pretorius, L (IEEE Xplore, 2013-11)
    Systems Engineering techniques and approaches are applied to design and develop solutions for complex problems. Information and Communication Technology systems can be complex to develop where the impact of new technology ...
  • Smith, CJ; Oosthuizen, R (2011-09)
    Due to high cost of defence systems and the advent of multi-role military platforms, defence forces can no longer replace old systems with similar newer systems, but need to effectively and continually re-evaluate their ...
  • Rubin, N; Roos, T; Wilson, F; De Villiers, J; Perumal, S (2012-05)
    Modelling, Identification, Simulation and Synthesis are well known components of the System Engineering Process. Ally these with the Target Aligned (TA) heliostat architecture and the universally acknowledged merits of ...
  • Marais, M; Turpin, M; Marais, Mario A; Scott, L; Saidi, M; Meyer, I (2007-09)
    The purpose of the project is to use systems methodologies developed in a science and engineering environment and to apply these towards a better understanding of the National Poverty Alleviation System. The aim of such a ...
  • Saidi, M (2007-05)
    CSIR undertook a project to use systems methodologies and apply them towards a better understanding of the ‘assumed’ NPAS aiming: at establishing a suitable framework for analysis; describe and analyse the system in such ...
  • Gonçalves, DP (International Council on Systems Engineering South Africa, 2015-09)
    The standard definition (ISO 15288, 2008) of the concept of a system is not complete and is the definition of a closed system. Such a definition is inadequate for systems engineering. A use-based definition is proposed ...
  • Erasmus, L (INCOSE, 2013-08)
    This presentation discusses a framework which is proposed to perform systems engineering research within South Africa and the necessity for hybrid research methods in systems engineering.
  • Oosthuizen, R; Venter, C (The International Command and Control Institute, 2016-09)
    Systems engineering is an established approach to develop systems, including complex sociotechnical systems such as Command and Control (C2) Systems. These systems often occur through introduction of a new technology into ...
  • Oosthuizen, Rudolph; Swart, Ignatius; Pretorius, L (Wiley, 2016-07)
    Systems engineering is still a growing field that depends on continuous research to develop and mature. Research in systems engineering is difficult and the classic approaches for other engineering disciplines may not be ...
  • Oosthuizen, R; Pretorius, L (IEEE Xplore, 2014-06)
    Different systems engineering techniques and approaches are applied to design and develop Command and Control solutions for complex problems. Command and Control is a complex sociotechnical system where human commanders ...
  • Harding, C; Naudé, B (2010-08)
    This paper addresses a Next Generation Network (NGN) performance management model in a business context. The CSIR is currently in the process of the concept design for the new Next Generation Communications Network (NGCN) ...
  • Greeff, AP (2011-09)
    Policy developers in corporate and governance roles are often developing policies by means of policy development cycles that typically resemble a system life cycle approach. Although policy development cycles often vary, ...
  • Goncalves, D (2008-06)
    Systems engineering is about coordination. To coordinate is to bring the different elements of a complex activity or organization into a harmonious or effective relationship as a whole system. This paper views coordination ...
  • Malik, HH; Erasmus, Louwrence; Pretorius, J-HC (INCOSE South Africa Chapter, 2016-09)
    The purpose of this study is to explore and gain a broad perspective on the systems engineering methods currently employed at a South African research council. The aim is to question if these methods are ideal by comparing ...
  • Goncalves, DP; Britz, J (2009-07)
    In this paper, the authors focus on the human dimension of Systems Engineering by addressing the need for the development of systems engineering potential in candidate engineers. Specifically, the authors propose a research ...
  • Giesler, Achmed (ISEM, 2011-09)
    This report is a literature study that focuses on the characteristics of successful project teams in the research and development environment. Project teams are becoming an increasingly important factor in business. ...
  • Smit, AG; Anderson, F (2003-08)
    This paper the considers the question whether the transformation in the South African Defence Research Institutes (DERI's) during the 1990's rendered their use of the formal Systems Engineering (SE) processes inappropriate ...
  • De Vries, M; Van der Merwe, A; Kotzé, P; Gerber, A (ISEM 2011 Proceedings, 2011-09)
    Enterprise engineering is an enterprise design methodology that uses a process to create an organised whole, while mastering complexity. Dietz proposes an organisation theorem that reduces complexity by representing the ...
