Dr. Migliore will review systems engineering as a process for developing products, processes, and services and suggest views that encourage systems thinking. As an example, he will focus on the beginning of the development process, the fuzzy front end, and discuss a method, ConOps, for getting started using examples from PSU's masters program.
Herman Migliore has nearly forty years experience in engineering design, application of computational mechanics in design, development of design methodologies, and design education. Since 1997, he has been director of systems engineering at Portland State University, an online masters program intended for experienced, practicing engineers. As director, he has participated in many projects that apply systems engineering to a wide variety of areas for small, medium, and large industry and government sponsors.
