International Council on Systems Engineering is a not-for-profit membership
organization founded in 1990 to develop, nurture and enhance the system
engineering approach to multi-disciplinary system product development to
enable the realization of successful systems. Through its Process and
Improvement Technical Committee and Measurement Working Group (MWG), INCOSE
has been a leader in the development and transition of Systems Engineering
Measurement guidance. The MWG promotes a shared understanding and
advancement of systems engineering measures, measurement practices,
measurement tools/support, and the overall measurement process. It focuses
of Measurement Guidance
Industry Association Collaboration

Related Products and Services
INCOSE provides the following products and services that aid measurement of
systems and SE:
SE Measurement Primer and Metrics Guidebook for Integrated
Systems and Product Development.
INCOSE International Symposium includes a measurement track (proceedings
Jointly sponsored conferences with other technical/professional
organizations, including PSM. INCOSE is a co-sponsor of the PSM Users’
Quarterly INCOSE Insight newsletter contains a regular column on
Frequently Asked Questions about SE measurement. Two past issues have
been focused entirely on measurement.
Quarterly “Systems Engineering: The Journal of the International
Council on Systems Engineering” often contains leading edge
applications or research that is measurement related.
Measurement tool requirements to support the INCOSE and PSM measurement
Tools database with current information on measurement tool capabilities
versus tool requirements.
SE Speaker’s Bureau to provide qualified speakers, including SE
Participation in the development and review of SE and measurement
Key contributor to USC’s development of a SE cost estimation tool called
Papers/panels on measurement (risk, small projects, effectiveness
assessment, and requirements in standards & models).
Standard SE Measurement Process briefing with presenter and tailoring
Current work in measurement of technical products, risk, and small
projects; reusable measurement products; a measurement process scenario
for standard AP233; an update to the SE Measurement Primer; and an
evaluation of measurement state-of-the-practice.
