As Systems Engineering and Program Management have evolved since World War II, missions have to be achieved within the constraints of cost, schedule and expected performance. Systems engineering is attempting to describe and define the optimal solution while the program management is attempting to determine the necessary work components and develop the plan. Both are keys to the success of a program. Bringing these two disciplines together with a common success measure requires the integration of functions within programs. Taking this course will learn how to apply systems engineering processes, tools, methods and techniques on program management’s organizing and staffing, planning, performance measurement, decision, and cost control on how to execute an accurate Earned Value Management System (EVMS).
