The UKAB provides a forum for UK Systems Engineering organisations (within industry, government and academia) to influence the activities that INCOSE UK undertakes, and the systems engineering best practice that INCOSE UK promotes.
The UKAB was established in order to bridge the identified gap between INCOSE UK and the employers of its membership. The purpose of the UKAB is to allow UK Systems Engineering Enterprises (Industry, Government & Academia) to have their say in influencing the practice of Systems Engineering and to see directly the benefits of INCOSE UK.
The formation of the UKAB was also to stimulate the support of INCOSE UK working groups as this was seen as providing an executive arm for groups like the Royal Academy of Engineering (RAEng) and the Department of Trade and Industry Systems Engineering National Advisory Committee (DTI SE NAC). The executive arm could provide worked solutions to the issues these groups were raising and trying to address with very busy senior people.
A secondary benefit was to replace the piecemeal support through sponsorship of UK events by providing funds through UKAB membership.
