Abstract
The Systems Engineering Competency Career Model (SECCM) was designed to assist with career development modeling and in the creation of position descriptions for the Department of Defense (DoD) (Whitcomb, Khan, & White, 2013). To achieve this, thousands of knowledge, skills and abilities (KSAs) were mapped and analyzed using the Bloom’s taxonomic classification schema. Doing so allowed the NPS SECCM researchers to highlight the cognitive and affective learning domains requisite of competent System Engineers (SE). The competency modeling approach resulted in an interactive model, which identifies the KSAs required for DoD systems engineers to be considered competent at various career experience levels. As such, training levels and competency sources are also identified within the model.
