This award recognizes the successful implementation of systems engineering best practices resulting in program success. Under the EBS contract, Jacobs has enhanced the AFRL's business processes, resulting in cost savings and increased effectiveness through integrated business process solutions and smart enterprise-wide IT portfolio management. Major services include program management, requirements analysis, systems engineering, configuration/enterprise data management, software testing, quality assurance, and engineering process definition. The Jacobs TYBRIN Group also received an Engineering Top 5 Program Award in 2005 for their work on the Patriot Excalibur (PEX) software program.

Partnership with INCOSE

INCOSEJacobs recognizes the importance of talented, experienced, and empowered systems engineering leadership and practitioners to meeting the mission requirements of our clients. To promote excellence in systems engineering, Jacobs signed an agreement with the International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE) to leverage its program to certify Jacobs systems engineers. Through this agreement, we will offer our employees the opportunity to hone their skills and recognize them for their professional knowledge. Our clients will benefit from our enhanced systems engineering capabilities and our value-added performance. For additional information on INCOSE, visit its web site.

Program Acquisition and Systems Engineering Community of Practice

Jacobs sponsors a Program Acquisition and Systems Engineering (PASE) Community of Practice (CoP) to develop, implement, continuously improve, and promote effective program acquisition and systems engineering principles and practices and share knowledge with practitioners across the company. CoP members have access to a collaborative web site where they can find information on best practices and lessons learned, tools and processes specific to the systems engineering discipline, and discussion boards for asking questions and sharing answers with other Jacobs system engineering professionals. Members of the PASE CoP may utilize these resources to stay on the cutting edge of systems engineering practice. Jacobs' customers have the benefit of not only the systems engineering personnel on their contracts, but also the combined knowledge of the members of the CoP.
