16 September 2004 Mitigating project development and facility operation risks with systems engineering
Author Affiliations +
The presentation illustrates the standard life cycles and project phases of a typical large scale astronomical facility acqui-sition and development project and explains the role of Systems Engineering (SE) during the entire project life cycle. The basic SE philosophy and systematic SE approach are described and a road map identifying the main activities of SE during the individual project phases - from the requirement definition to the eventual validation of the erected system- is developed. In addition the presentation describes the methodologies and processes SE can offer to analyse the risks asso-ciated with the definition, development and implementation of large complex scientific infrastructure projects. Risk control methods and approaches which are necessary to systematically reduce the technical, financial and schedule risks to a level acceptable to the scientific / technical project management and to the funding agencies are explained.
