INCOSE UK supports a number of local groups and working groups to provide its members with opportunities to play an active part in the development of systems engineering in the UK.
Over the years INCOSE UK has also initiated a number of Working Groups to address issues of relevance to particular sets of practitioners. Working Groups may be wound down once the participants feel that they have adequately addressed whatever issues they were looking at, or the group may stay together to build upon what they have done. The Working Groups are encouraged to work towards the production of reports or other deliverables which are then made available to other INCOSE UK members as part of a growing body of recommendations and best practice.
Interest Groups differ from Working Groups in that they are not primarily there to produce outputs; they are more likely to establish a community of interested parties and arrange events aimed at furthering the interests of the community.
INCOSE UK currently has a number of Working Groups and Interest Groups:
INCOSE UK encourages all of its members to take part in Local Groups and Working/Interest Groups as they provide a real opportunity to help advance the profession and bring INCOSE to a wider audience.
Each of the Groups is open to all INCOSE UK members by invitation, so if you want to participate in a Group simply contact its chairperson, which you will find in the Group’s committee contact details, stating your interest in the group.
If you would like to set up a Group, follow these guidelines:
