Executive Summary

This document is a summary of the work that was completed in the first year of the SERC Research Topic DO1/TTO2/0016 ―Developing Systems Engineering Experience Accelerator (SEEA) Prototype and Roadmap‖ supported by the Defense Acquisition University. The purpose of the research project is to test the feasibility of a simulated approach for accelerating systems engineering competency development in the learner. The SEEA research project hypothesis is:

By using technology we can create a simulation that will put the learner in an experiential, emotional state and effectively compress time and greatly accelerate the learning of a systems engineer faster than would occur naturally on the job.

The major research activities in Increment 2 are as follows:
