Course Objectives:
To acquaint the student with the theory and practice of systems engineering with an emphasis on techniques in
use today for large scale systems development. The student will become familiar with the organizations and
standards most relevant in that context. Students will create selected systems engineering artifacts and perform
an exercise in planning the systems engineering activities for a hypothetical program. Upon completion, the
student will be conversant in most of today’s methodologies and be exposed to developments leading to the
future of systems engineering. The course provides a firm foundation for subsequent classes Systems
Architecture and Engineering.

NOTE: The assignments are chosen to provide tangible experience in important SE methodologies.
Submission of Homework by DEN Students:
– Send your homework to DEN by email (or fax)
– DEN email submission: [email protected]
– On Blackboard, for ISE 541,click on DEN Homework for forms and instructions
Submission of Homework by On Campus Students:
– Drop off hard copies in the DEN office
– Your name, course name and time, instructor name on the front
GRADING METHOD:
The class grade is based on a combination of the assignments, midterm, project and final examination.
The weight for each category is as follows:
Assignments (lowest score not counted)
25%
Mid Term
25%
Final Examination
25%
Systems Engineering Management Plan Project
25%
100%
The grade for any homework assignment will be reduced by one letter grade per week unless prior arrangement
is made with the instructor.
USC Grading Policies shall be followed.
PROJECT:
Background: The Systems Engineering Management Plan documents the SE processes to be employed on the
program for which it is written. When done well and done early (subject to change) it is a significant risk
mitigator in terms of cost and schedule.
Teams will create a SEMP for a hypothetical program of their choosing. Guidance for the SEMP will be given
during the course, but the structure is to include the following topics: Other topics usually found in a SEMP
may be included, but are not required for this assignment.
Requirements Analysis
Functional Analysis and Allocation
Synthesis
Risk Management
Technical Performance Measures
Technical Reviews
Description of Systems Engineering Products
Teams will present a 30 minute summary of their SEMP during class 15
Academic Integrity Statement -"“The Viterbi School of Engineering adheres to the University's policies and
procedures governing academic integrity as described in SCampus. Students are expected to be aware of and to
observe the academic integrity standards described in SCampus, and to expect those standards to be enforced in
this course”.
Students with Disabilities: "Any Student requesting academic accommodations based on a disability is
required to register with Disability Services and Programs (DSP) each semester. A letter of verification for
approved accommodations can be obtained from DSP. Please be sure the letter is delivered to me (or to TA) as
early in the semester as possible. DSP is located in STU 301 and is open 8:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m., Monday through
Friday. The phone number for DSP is (213)740-0776”.
