System architecting is the art and science of designing and building multi-disciplinary systems. The responsibility and the challenge for the system architect is to translate the requirements of the many stakeholders into a system architecture blueprint. He/she will do this based on a solid knowledge of the problem domain, the business context, the human context, the solution domain, technology roadmaps and preceding architectures. The system architect provides the vision, develops the outline for an integral design, keeps the overview and takes care of the design consistency. He/she provides the context for the development activities that will be carried out by large multi-disciplinary teams of specialists.
This course is designed to give system architects a clear view of their role and responsibilities in the multi-disciplinary environment. Participants receive instruments (like CAFCR) to tackle architectural issues, e.g. how to balance the many, often conflicting requirements, how to set up a Roadmap and the basics for creating a business case.
The course gives a complete overview of the broad playing field and a variety of viewpoints that a system architect needs to manage. It contains many short exercises, worked out in small groups, that help to experience the broadness of the field. The addressed subjects help to understand the influence of the organization structure, the importance of focusing not only on technical aspects but also on business, process and human aspects and how to cover multidisciplinary aspects.
This training is being offered in Eindhoven, Zwolle, Delft and Leuven (Belgium). Please select the location in the above drop-down menu 'Select location'.
The training is available for in-company editions all over the world too.
If on-site training is not feasible, we will transition to a live, interactive online (virtual) or hybrid format. If this transition is necessary, we will contact you in advance for your approval.
After successful completion of this course, the participant will have:
Insight in the role of System architecting in the Product creation process;
Insight in the role, profile and skills of the system architect;
Insight in lean and agile processes, focussing on efficiency and effectiveness;
Insight in the requirements capturing process;
Insight in the CAFCR framework;
Insight in multi-disciplinary models and views;
Insight in system decomposition and system integration;
Insight in roadmapping process and the role of the System Architect in that process;
Experienced the importance of communication and insight in how to bring a technical message to higher management.
(Potential) system architects, system group leaders, system engineers, senior designers and project leaders. A few years of experience in system or product development, from any discipline like mechanics, physics, mechatronics, electronics or software, with an interest in the integral multi-disciplinary architectural issues and affinity with the business aspects is essential.
