The Australian Systems Engineering Workshop (ASEW) brought together leading technical, government and industry delegates from around Australia and overseas; this year’s ASEW incorporated the MBSE Symposium, and for the first time, a Transport Stream.

Shoal was well-represented at ASEW, sharing our experiences through presentations, panels, workshops and working group meetings.

Presentations from Shoal representatives proved highly engaging and sparked a lot of discussion throughout the event. These included Model-Based Conceptual Design through to system implementation – Lessons from a structured yet agile approach and Determining return-on-investment for MBSE, SE & SOSE. David Readman from DST Group presented Lessons in model reuse, the result of a joint research effort with Shoal.

Shoal’s international partner, Anne O’Neil, shared her experiences from her time leading the systems engineering effort at New York City Transit (NYCT) through a facilitated panel sessions which discussed the topics ‘Sydney Metro case study on requirements & traceability’ and ‘SE-based Asset Management’.

Shoal sponsored the opening night dinner at which Shaun Wilson and Anne O’Neil spoke about how systems engineering has begun expanding beyond its traditional boundaries. The growth in the ASEW program, attracting transportation systems practitioners, is a true tribute to the late Paul Logan whose vision had anticipated this expansion and diversification of the Australian systems engineering community.

The ASEW continues to evolve as a forum reaching our across industry, academia and government and Shoal looks forward to continued participation.
