Abstract: This paper proposes a suitable framework for consideration of the elements of Systems Engineering. A framework is necessary due to the breadth, complexity and interrelationships that exist within the Systems Engineering discipline. Current frameworks such as those contained in engineering standards necessarily contain complexity, terminology and detail to guide Systems Engineers. However these attributes make them less than ideal for the delivery of education and training. The Systems Engineering Body of Knowledge (SEBOK) framework proposed in this paper divides Systems Engineering into Systems Engineering Processes, Systems Engineering Management, Systems Engineering Tools and Related Disciplines. The SEBOK framework has been tested through the development and delivery of two courses of study; an introductory course and a practitioners course. Initial feedback from both courses indicates that the SEBOK is an effective framework for the consideration of Systems Engineering.
