Shri. Arjun Vijayanarayanan

Title: “A Systems Thinking Approach to Aircraft Electrical Systems Integration.”

Overview: This lecture will shed light on all the design factors to be considered by an aircraft system integration engineer. Other than the usual technical factors the session will also talk about the importance of human factors to be implemented in the design. The idea is to help designers evolve as a holistic design thinker.

Outcome:

By the end of the course, participants will know about :

  • The factors that play an important role in coming up with an efficient system integration design.
  • Documentation needed to find the necessary design requirements
  • Importance of human factors
  • Become a holistic design thinker

People who can join:

AME, Avionics engineers, Electrical Wire routing designers, system integration engineers, Aircraft electrical techs, Aeronautical/aviation engineers/aspirants, aviation human factors engineers, aspiring aerospace engineers.
