The 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 on:

  • Unification of Measurement Guidance

  • Industry Association Collaboration

  • Publication in Systems Measurement

  • Practical Software and Systems Measurement (PSM)

  • Real-life, Proven, and Validated Experience

  • Training and Tools for Systems Measurement

  • Research In Measurement

  • Integrate Measurement into INCOSE Product Line
