LIVONIA — The International Council of Systems Engineering (INCOSE) Michigan Chapter announced a special dinner meeting Wednesday, April 29 featuring systems engineering expert and speaker David Hall, of Huntsville, Ala.
The event will be held at the VisTaTech Conference Center, Schoolcraft College, 18600 Haggerty Road, Livonia. A limited number of tickets are available, through advanced registration only, at EventBrite, http://20150429incosemi.eventbrite.com.
Said chapter president Kurshid Qureshi, services director for worldwide systems engineering at Dassault Systemes: “Mr. Hall’s extensive knowledge of systems engineering practices and how those practices can be implemented in any industry – from aerospace and defense to automotive and healthcare – to bring about improvements in cost, schedule, and quality, will undoubtedly be appreciated by those who attend our chapter dinner meeting on April 29th.”
Hall has more than over 40 years of systems engineering experience with the U.S. Department of Defense, NASA, the Department of Commerce, a variety of state and local agencies, and numerous industrial areas and commercial companies. In the early 2000s, he led the implementation of NASA training in risk management and process improvement, providing consistency across all NASA Centers. He also served for a number of years working for the Missile Defense Agency in their quality, safety and mission assurance programs.
Hall is an INCOSE Expert Systems Engineering Professional (ESEP) and a Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP). He served as Chair of the INCOSE Certification Advisory Group (CAG) in 2014, overseeing INCOSE’s certification of systems engineers worldwide.
“There has been considerable research on the return on investment of systems engineering,” explains Hall said. “These research studies use bottom line financial data to show positive ROI, and provide hard statistics on the optimum amount of resources to expend on system engineering activities to maximize ROI .”
