1Introduction

1.1General


The INCOSE Systems Engineering Capability Assessment Model (SECAM) Model Description, herein after referred to simply as the INCOSE SECAM, is a product of the Capability Assessment Working Group (CAWG) of the International Council On Systems Engineering (INCOSE). The SECAM is to be used in conjunction with the SECAM Assessment Method to evaluate systems engi­neering capability. When this is done properly, INCOSE believes that an organization practicing systems engineering in an integrated systems or integrated product and process development (IPPD) environment may evaluate its capability to perform systems engineering and determine areas for po­tential improvement.

1.2Endorsement of the SECAM


The CAWG is one of four working groups that comprise the Measurement Technical Committee of the Technical Board of INCOSE. At the INCOSE Winter Workshop in January 1996, the INCOSE SECAM and the SECAM Assessment Method received:

  • The unanimous endorsement of the INCOSE Technical Board for publica­tion as an INCOSE Technical Paper.

[Note: A Technical Paper is a designation given to all ap­proved products of the INCOSE Technical Board to include handbooks, models, reports, etc.]

This was the first product of an INCOSE Working Group to achieve the INCOSE Technical Board's approval.

Previously, at the Fifth Annual International Symposium of NCOSE (now INCOSE) held in July 1995, several events of significance occurred with respect to the INCOSE/CAWG SECAM and the SECAM Assessment Method:


  • The INCOSE/CAWG SECAM and supporting documents received unani­mous endorsement of the Measurement Technical Committee.

  • The INCOSE/CAWG SECAM and supporting documents received unani­mous approval by the Technical Board to be released as an "interim" Techni­cal Paper.

[Note: The word interim has been italicized for emphasis; this was a precursor to complete approval that was obtained in January 1996.]

  • The Board of Directors unanimously resolved:

"INCOSE will publicize and disseminate the CAWG developed Sys­tems Engineering Capability Assessment Model (SECAM) and sup­porting documents as the INCOSE model and method to assess sys­tems engineering process maturity, using the funds already allocated to the Technical Board budget line item."
