Module content

The PSE process is discussed within the context of the technology-based enterprise. The first objective is to conceptualise and model a tech-based enterprise in terms of core business processes and the interaction amongst them. SE processes are hence understood in the context of the project and organisation. The concepts of “system, project and process” are explained.
The design and development of the total system for the total system life-cycle, taking into account the requirements of all stakeholders is the heart of PSE.
All stakeholders and their requirements are identified, described and managed over time. The system life-cycle stages/phases and related system design processes are focused upon. A number of SE topics, e.g. information and configuration management, life-cycle cost, quality of design, downstream “design to” requirements and logistics are touched on. SE planning within the bigger project plan is investigated. The important and integrating role of the project manager to make SE successful, particularly in the early phases of the project, is highlighted.

University of Pretoria Programme Qualification Mix (PQM) verification project
The higher education sector has undergone an extensive alignment to the Higher Education Qualification Sub-Framework (HEQSF) across all institutions in South Africa. In order to comply with the HEQSF, all institutions are legally required to participate in a national initiative led by regulatory bodies such as the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET), the Council on Higher Education (CHE), and the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA). The University of Pretoria is presently engaged in an ongoing effort to align its qualifications and programmes with the HEQSF criteria. Current and prospective students should take note that changes to UP qualification and programme names, may occur as a result of the HEQSF initiative. Students are advised to contact their faculties if they have any questions.
