Natural Systems Include All of Nature: Living Systems, Geology, Water, and Air

Opportunities!

The NSWG is actively looking for folks to help in 2019.   

Content curators: we have a few topics in mind, and are open to more. Set up webinars or focused discussions. The individual will select a topic and suggest papers for an informal discussion. They will also work with leadership to suggest a webinar speaker on the topic.


We work in the following topic areas:

Bio-Inspired Design 
Biomimetics and Systems Mimicry
Patterns in Natural Systems
Complexity and Natural Systems
Mapping Natural Systems Tools to the SE Process
NASA Grand Challenge for NS and SE
Sustainable Business

Natural Systems Working Group
Friday March 15th noon CST

Please join us for an informal discussion:

Session Title: Clarifying SE + NST Communications

Description:
Systems Engineering boundaries can be challenging for disciplined and productive interchange with practitioners in other fields.  By better understanding and meeting stakeholder requirements, NSWG will be well positioned to develop recommendations for upstream and downstream SE processes.

Please join us for this informal discussion on how NSWG can help clarify communications on Systems Engineering and Natural Systems Thinking frameworks.

Question of the day:
If we put all the BID tools in a cabinet, how would we organize them?
