San Diego, CA, August 04, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- The International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE) has presented its Fellows Award to Robert Kenley and Rick Steiner, ESEP, for their significant contributions to systems engineering. Kenley is being honored for advancing the application of analytic methods and statistical modeling techniques in systems design and analysis, and Steiner received the award for his industry-leading work in developing the Systems Modeling Language (SysML) and related real-world projects.
Kenley – an associate professor of engineering practice at Purdue University – has a doctorate in engineering-economic systems from Stanford University. He focuses on education and research in the science of systems fundamentals. Over the past 30 years, Kenley proved his skills in industry, academia and government as a practitioner, consultant and researcher in systems engineering. His work helps to provide normative frameworks and prescriptive methods that advance the state of the practice, which is essential to address the challenges presented by next-generation systems.
Rick Steiner, ESEP
Steiner – an instructor at UC San Diego Extension and co-author of "A Practical Guide to SysML: The Systems Modeling Language," – has been a systems engineer and architect for more than 30 years. As a practitioner and proponent of model based systems engineering (MBSE), Steiner focuses on making the practice of systems engineering better and more efficient. He received his INCOSE Expert Systems Engineering Professional certification in 2014.
The awards were presented at INCOSE’s International Symposium, the organization’s annual flagship event for systems engineers worldwide, July 18 to 21 in Edinburgh, Scotland.
