Timely, concise review of the System Level benefits gained when implementing Object-Oriented Systems Engineering Methodology, OOSEM.

Object Oriented Programming, OOP, gained prominence and evolved as a preferred methodology in many applications. This two-day class introduces and explores the latest Object-Oriented Systems Engineering Methodology (OOSEM). Class participants will also investigate the OOSEM as a way to more effectively and efficiently interface with Software Engineering throughout the full System Lifecycle.

The emphasis of this class is on assisting Systems Engineers in understanding the merits of learning and implementing OOSEM (i.e., smoother interfaces between systems and software engineering throughout the full system lifecycle), rather than on the technical details of implementation methods (i.e., specific Unified Modeling Language (UML) implementation details).

Applications and benefits:

You will benefit by enhancing your understanding of the:

Who should attend:

This course is designed primarily for Systems Engineers, Managers and Supervisors experienced with OO design and SA/SDSEM, but interested in investigating OOSEM as a way to more effectively and efficiently interface with Software Engineering throughout full system lifecycles. The course objective is to familiarize the participants with the reasons for, and the benefits of, adopting OOSEM.

The prerequisite for this course is a working knowledge of OO and SA/SDSEM.

Course Outline:

Material presented (and practiced) during the two-day overview of OOSEM addresses the following Questions/Issues:

The material presented is the product of combined expertise in this field, and is supported by the following extensive list of references and instructor?s experience:

About the Instructor

Michael E. Pafford, M.S., brings more than 30 years of experience in the design, architecture, integration, operation, and management of intelligence-related systems. He is currently a Senior Systems Engineer in the Intelligence Systems Group at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory working on analyzing and modeling Enterprise-Level Performance Assessment methodologies for the Community ELINT Management Office (CEMO). He led the JHU/APL technical team in the development of C4ISR Architecture products in support of the Chief Engineer of the Navy?s Time-Critical Targeting and Tasking, Collecting, Processing, Exploitation, and Dissemination Mission Capability Packages. Mr. Pafford began his career as an Air Force Signals Intelligence Specialist. Later he served as a Navy Cryptologic Officer leading the design of state-of-the-art intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance systems. After retiring from active duty, Mr. Pafford held senior systems engineering positions with ITT, General Dynamics, and Harris Corporation where he led technical teams in the architecting, development, and integration of GFE, GOTS, and COTS intelligence systems for DoD customers.
