Abstract

Based on 45 years of experience conducting research and development into spacecraft instrumentation and 13 years' experience teaching Systems Engineering in a range of industries, the Mullard Space Science Laboratory at University College London (UCL) has identified a set of guiding principles that have been invaluable in delivering successful projects in the most demanding of environments. The five principles are: 'principles govern process', 'seek alternative systems perspectives', 'understand the enterprise context', 'integrate systems engineering and project management', and 'invest in the early stages of projects'. A common thread behind the principles is a desire to foster the ability to anticipate and respond to a changing environment with a constant focus on achieving long-term value for the enterprise. These principles are applied in space projects and have been spun-out to non-space projects (primarily through UCL's Centre for Systems Engineering). They are also embedded in UCL's extensive teaching and professional training programme. © 2012 by Author Name.
