The IEEE Systems Council is one of seven councils of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).

<toc>

Purpose[edit]

The Systems Council integrates IEEE activities regarding aspects of multiple disciplines and specialty areas of systems engineering, and covers, but is not limited to:

• Systems Engineering education, standards, processes, methodologies

• Systems Modeling, simulation, integration, resilience

• Robust design, safety & human factors, security, usability, environmental

• Product transition: design, production, test, deployment, disposal

• Program/project management

• Quality Assurance

• Mission Assurance

• Requirements Development & Management

• Risk Management

• Systems Architecture

• Systems-of-Systems

The IEEE Systems Council was formed in 2005 by Robert C. (Bob) Rassa, an IEEE Fellow who was at the time President of the IEEE Instrumentation & Measurement Society (IMS), in order to provide IEEE focus on complex systems and the systems engineering talent, skills and processes necessary to successfully design and implement complex systems and systems-of-systems. The Council was initially founded and supported by fifteen initial member IEEE Societies: Aerospace & Electronic Systems Society (AES); Circuits & Systems Society (CAS); Communications Society (COMSOC); Computational Intelligence Society (CIS); Computer Society (CS); Electromagnetic Compatibility Society (ECS); Engineering Management Society (EMS); Industrial Electronics Society (IES); Instrumentation & Measurement Society (IMS); Microwave Theory & Techniques Society (MT&T): Oceanic Engineering Society (OES); Power Electronics Society (PES); Product Safety Engineering Society (PSES); Reliability Society (RS); and Systems Man & Cybernetics Society (SMC). Mr Rassa served as the Council's initial President.

Fields of Interest[edit]

Multiple disciplines and specialty areas of systems engineering, and covers, but is not limited to:

• Systems Engineering education, standards, processes, methodologies

• Systems Modeling, simulation, integration, resilience

• Robust design, safety & human factors, security, usability, environmental

• Product transition: design, production, test, deployment, disposal

• Program/project management

• Quality Assurance

• Mission Assurance

• Requirements Development & Management

• Risk Management

• Systems Architecture

• Systems-of-Systems

Publications[edit]

The IEEE Systems Journal (ISJ) is the technical journal of the IEEE Systems Council, and is published quarterly.[1] It is "intended to stimulate awareness, appreciation and utilization of systems thinking and the supporting systems engineering disciplines, especially for complex systems, systems-of-systems, and complex cyber-physical systems, across many domains and application areas."[1]

Conferences[edit]

The IEEE Systems Council is willing to sponsor, co-sponsor or technically co-sponsor conferences and workshops in its field of interest. Sponsorship implies full responsibility of the IEEE Systems Council for the technical program and the finances; in co-sponsorship this responsibility is shared with other entities. Technical co-sponsorship implies only cooperation in organizing the technical program.
