Systems Engineering

Our full range of Systems Engineering and Configuration Management Services.

LSAust has a strong technical and engineering focus and apply proven Systems Engineering (SE) techniques to your project. All our SE consultants have engineering and/or technical qualifications and a range of additional skills and experience that compliment and underpin their systems engineering expertise. These include: effective written and oral communication, project management, integrated logistic support, commissioning, test and evaluation, transition management, fleet management, disposal, risk management, specification construction and configuration management.

We can provide you with SE Best Practice during concept feasibility and equipment acquisition, through to operations management. You receive value-for-money system solutions as we work closely with you every step of the way, from program inception through implementation to disposal.

LSAust employ technical regulatory guidelines and relevant standards to ensure the technical integrity is planned for and achieved. Major project milestones such as System Design Reviews, Preliminary Design Reviews, and Critical Design Reviews, right through to equipment acceptance and delivery, can be managed by LSAust.

We understand the need for traceability, thus ensuring technical integrity and testability of the engineering procedure and just as importantly, the required Support System.

This ensures that your requirements are accurately transformed into a defined system and documented, through a traceable process of requirements analysis, functional analysis, requirements allocation, synthesis, design optimisation, and validation and verification.

The above approach would be supported with bi-lateral requirements traceability to original definition documents, showing all relevant parent/child relationships and associated test derivations and requirements. If any part of the system definition or design changes, all associated impacts are analysed to determine the effect on their dependencies. Hence all changes to requirements, derivations and testing are captured, ensuring that configuration baselines are tightly managed and your original requirements are not compromised through invalid verification and validation.
