Empowering Engineers: Exploring INCOSE Systems Engineering Handbook V5
What is INCOSE?
The International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE) was founded as a collaborative effort to bring systems engineers together and provide them with resources to progress in their field. Their mission is to cultivate a strong network of professionals, supply educational materials, and create tools that will help systems engineers be successful. INCOSE is dedicated to elevating the global profile of the systems engineering (SE) profession.
INCOSE Systems Engineering Handbook
According to INCOSE, the Systems Engineering Handbook “shows what each systems engineering process activity entails in the context of designing for affordability and performance. On some projects, a given activity may be performed very informally (e.g., on the back of an envelope, or in an engineer’s notebook); or, on other projects, a more formal response is required with interim products under formal configuration control.”
The handbook provides assistance for individuals of various backgrounds and experience levels, such as those just beginning their systems engineering journey, engineers from different disciplines needing to apply the principles of systems engineering, and experienced engineers looking for a handy reference.
INCOSE Systems Engineering Handbook V5
The newly released INCOSE Systems Engineering Handbook V5 is a comprehensive guide to the discipline of SE which outlines the current best practices and serves as an informative reference for understanding SE in terms of content and application.
Some of the topics included in the latest handbook include:
- Elaboration on the key systems life cycle processes described in ISO/IEC/IEEE 15288:2023;
- Chapters covering key systems engineering concepts, system lifecycle processes and methods, tailoring and application considerations, systems engineering in practice; and
- Appendices, including an N2 diagram of the systems engineering processes and a detailed topical index.

Applying INCOSE Standards Using Jama Connect Advisor™
System engineers focus on making each of the individual systems work together into an integrated whole that performs as expected across the lifecycle of the product. In order to deliver successful products, they need the right user needs and requirements. Efficient, precise, and professionally written requirements form the foundation of the product development process so that various teams (design, software, and hardware systems) can all work together with a shared and clear understanding of the project goals.
Jama Connect Advisor™ is a state-of-the-art requirements authoring guide and optimizer powered by natural language processing for engineering that helps a system engineer or a product developer write effective, well-organized requirement specifications based on industry-accepted INCOSE rules and the EARS (Easy Approach to Requirements Syntax) notation.
