Development of a System Engineering Competency Career Development Model: an analytical approach using Bloom’s Taxonomy
MetadataShow full item record
This report describes the effort by the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) in its development of a competency model for the profession of systems engineering. Competency modeling can be defined as the activity of determining the specific competencies that are characteristic of high performance and success in a given job (LaRocca, n.d.). According to Joshi et al., competency is defined as the ability to use the appropriate knowledge, skills and abilities (KSAs) to successfully complete a specific job-related task (Joshi et. al. 2010). To understand the relationship competency modeling has with the identification of the competencies required of engineers, NPS developed a systems engineering career development competency model. Referred to as the Systems Engineering Competency Career Model (SECCM), the model highlights an ag gregate of the core technical and general KSAs. The KSAs were researched from the current hiring manuals of various naval and engineering enterprises. Two key objectives of the SECCM were to: develop an approach and methodology to obtain baseline information needed for systems engineering competency model development (for example the related KSAs, relevant education, training, and experience required) and to define career paths for systems engineers (jobs, assignments, and timing). Other objectives included to design and administer a survey to determine the competencies associated with systems engineering.
