Problem Oriented Engineering: the framework and its impact on practice

Location: Meeting Room 10, 2nd Floor, JLB
Time: 12:30pm - 13:45pm

Problem Oriented Engineering (POE) is an emerging framework for engineering as problem solving, with engineering seen as the creative, iterative and often open-ended undertaking of conceiving and developing products, systems and processes. POE has been successfully applied to the design of, and design process improvement for, software intensive systems, in a number of domains from high assurance and mission critical systems engineering, to banking, to online education, etc. It combines well with practice, by providing guidance and a conceptual toolset for practitioners to analyse, synthesise and improve their every-day design processes and activities, without the constraints of a one-size-fits-all method or notation. This seminar will outline the framework and discuss some impact of its application in professional practice.
