Digital Systems Engineering Process Model


Join us for an exciting event exploring the world of Systems Engineering and its vital role in engineering successful systems. Systems Engineering relies on a set of 30 system life cycle processes, which act as a template for organizations to engineer systems. These processes are described in detail in two sources, the ISO 15288:2015 and the INCOSE handbook v4, both of which embody the expertise of professionals from diverse industries.

These processes are some sort of a template for an enterprise which develops systems. And – as every template – it must be tailored to the reality before application. Tailoring these processes to meet organizational and product needs requires an in-depth understanding of their contents, including concepts, relations between them, and their meaning. However, with a 300-page book, it can be challenging to answer important questions such as how processes "architecture definition" and "design" are related or what processes use the artifact "life cycle concepts".

This webinar will introduce a new INCOSE Technical Product for enterprise systems engineering that addresses this need. Our product, called the Digital Systems Engineering Process Model, offers clear, interactive access to all aspects of the systems engineering life cycle processes, providing a template that you can use for model-based systems engineering of enterprises.

Take-Away Key Messages

  • The Digital Systems Engineering Process Model, a new INCOSE product, is now available.
  • The product offers an interactive handbook with easily accessible information on systems engineering life cycle processes, their inputs, and outputs.
  • The product serves as a template for model-based enterprise engineering and can be used in any modeling tool of your choice.

Don't miss this opportunity to learn more about Systems Engineering and how you can use our product to engineer successful systems. Join us for an informative and engaging INCOSE webinar:

Alexander Efremov will introduce the Digital Systems Engineering Process Model in the first part of this webinar. Further on, Gerben C. Th. Wierda will share his insights on the practical side of enterprise architecture as a discipline and provide a sneak peek at his book, "Chess and the Art of Enterprise Architecture". Finally, Phil Beauvoir will introduce the open-source Archi modelling tool used to create the product. This tool will help you improve your modelling skills, learn the ArchiMate® enterprise architecture modeling language, and get hands-on experience with our product right after the webinar.


Alexander Efremov, CSEP, is a consulting engineer at MHP Management- and IT-Beratung GmbH, a subsidiary of Porsche AG. He holds a Dipl.-Ing. (Diploma Engineer) degree in Control Design and Automation and has worked in various fields, including research (control system design for fusion reactors), airspace (life cycle management and systems engineering methods for commercial aircraft), toolchain-based training, and sales support (model-based design, industry-agnostic), and IT-consulting. Alexander is passionate about connecting products with other products, people with other people, and people with themselves.
Gerben C. Th. Wierda, MSc MBA, works as a lead enterprise architect for Algemene Pensioen Groep (APG), which manages investments for various pension funds in the Netherlands. Before that he was (amongst other things) Lead Architect of the Judiciary in The Netherlands, and Head of the forensic IT department of the Dutch Forensic Institute. In his spare time he is an independent author of blogs (of which the central one is and books, based on real world experiences in complex enterprises and provides consultancy, training/coaching. His books are Mastering ArchiMate and Chess and the Art of Enterprise Architecture.
Phil Beauvoir has been developing, writing, and speaking about software tools and development for over 30 years. He also plays the electric guitar and writes and produces electronic and ambient music. He has wide expertise in Java, the Eclipse Modelling and Rich Client Platforms, Web development, C, Objective-C, Swift, and iOS devel­opment. Between 1998 and 2012 Phil was Senior Researcher and Developer at Bangor University, and the Institute for Educational Cybernetics at another UK university. During this time, he worked with the team that developed Colloquia, a peer-to-peer learning manage­ment and groupware system, and one of the first Java desktop applications. In 2010, working with the IEC, Phil created the highly acclaimed ArchiMate Modelling Tool, Archi®. As well as maintaining and developing Archi®, he has worked as a consultant with The Open Group developing the ArchiMate Open Exchange Format. He continues to support Archi and develop additional plug-ins.
