These softer skills tend to be less easy to teach or, indeed, to measure and can often rely on the objectivity of an assessor. Again, the INCOSE framework does not enter into much detail in this area and only provides a simple list of suggested areas that may be considered. Domain Knowledge. This knowledge is related directly to the domain in which the person is working. As systems engineering is a multi-disciplinary subject, it can cover, potentially, any domain. As the scope of ‘any domain’ is so wide, it is not covered in any detail in this framework.
In order to demonstrate each generic competency, we will be looking for a specific interpretation of that competency in a source framework, hence the use of the tables. 4 each provide a different set of mappings. One immediate thing that stands out is where there is a lack of mappings. 6: Continuous Improvement X There is no mapping, because there is an omission from the source framework. This is possible but not very likely, bearing in mind the maturity of the frameworks and the amount of work and effort that has gone into producing them.
Each of these frameworks has a different scope, purpose and audience. Each of these frameworks is also recognised in its own particular field of interest and can be used, to different extents, as part of continuous professional development. No single framework will provide all relevant skills for a single person, therefore, in many cases, it may be desirable to choose different skills from different frameworks and to map them together. An example of this was shown using the UKSPEC but, in reality, any source framework could be used or, indeed, a generic framework could be generated to perform this mapping – in fact, this is exactly what is done in the next chapter, where frameworks are mapped onto a generic framework to be used as a basis for competency assessment.
