The Guide to the Systems Engineering Body of Knowledge (SEBoK) Version 1.00 was released on September 14, 2012, at the website <http://www.sebokwiki.org> www.sebokwiki.org. I was one of the authors, and wrote on System Realization, and also Electromagnetic Interference / Electromagnetic Compatibility.
Targeted to a broad audience, including practicing systems engineers, researchers, process improvement leads, project managers, and faculty, the SEBoK is a major step forward for the rapidly maturing systems engineering discipline. The SEBoK contains112 articles on key topics, defines 364 glossary terms, and identifies more than 200 primary references and hundreds of additional references. Published in a Wiki format for ease of updating and for community participation in its maintenance, regular updates are planned, incorporating feedback from users, advances in the field, and improvements in the more than 100 Wiki articles.
Seventy contributors from around the world authored the SEBoK, many whom are individual members of NDIA or work for organizations who are corporate members of NDIA. Several hundred reviewers provided comments. Each author and reviewer made an important contribution to the final product.
INCOSE, the IEEE Computer Society, the IEEE Systems Council, the Association for Computing Machinery, the National Defense Industrial Association, and the Systems Engineering Research Center were partner organizations in the development of the SEBoK. Primary funding was provided by the Office of the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Systems Engineering, with significant contributions in kind coming from the home organizations of the authors.
