Graduated from Ecole Normale Supérieure, Daniel Krob received his PhD and his habilitation thesis in Computer Science from University Paris 7. Former senior researcher in the French National Center for Scientific Research, institute professor at Ecole Polytechnique and head of the Dassault Aviation – DCNS – DGA – Thales “Engineering of Complex Systems” industrial chair of Ecole Polytechnique, Daniel Krob is currently president of the Center of Excellence in Systems Architecture, Management, Economy & Strategy (CESAMES). Author of more than 100 scientific papers, 4 patents and several books, Daniel Krob is one of the world expert in systems architecting, engineering & modeling. He worked for many international industrial companies in various areas (aerospace, automotive, energy, railway, etc.). He trained more than 10,000 engineers in the world for 15 years. In 2014, he was elected Fellow of the International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE) for his contributions to systems engineering.

Lecture Summary: 
We shall present a new agile system engineering approach which is especially dedicated to the development of non-software complex industrial systems. Its main principle is to organize the development in iterative & collaborative maturity-increasing loops, involving all actors up to manufacturing, organized according to the product breakdown structure of the considered system, regularly synchronized through specific integrative rituals. This framework was prototyped in aeronautics & space industries with important benefits in terms of time-to-market (up to 30 % compared to the existing baselines).
