Relevant Work Experience
University Bachelor Final Project at TU Delft, 31-03-2008 - 13-06-2008
At the end of the Bachelor phase of my study I worked for three months in a team of 20 students on a feasibility study to compete for the Google Lunar X-Prize. The team was split up in two groups of ten. Group 1 was to design the Lunar rover, group 2 the rest of the mission (mission architecture, mission analysis, programmetics, cost, main spacecraft/lander design). I was the systems engineer for group 2. For this project I applied all the basic systems engineering tools that I learned in courses. I performed tasks like: requirements management, functional analysis, interface management (for example N2-chart), RAMS, risk and cost assessments.
As part of the study we attended the first official Google Lunar X-prize team summit in ISU, Strasbourg. A few months after the project, I wrote a paper on the final design and gave a poster presentation on the Beyond Moon conference in Bremen, 2008, all on my own initiative.
Internship at TNO, 01-10-2009 - 01-03-2010:
The internship subject for my internship at TNO Delft was as follows: “Design a new High Thermal Stability Vacuum Facility for the M1-M2 assembly for the ESA-NASA LISA mission”. In short, the facility was to be extremely thermally stable (order of mK/sqrt(Hz)
Internship at ESA ESTEC, 15-03-2010 – 16-07-2010:
For my Honour track program I performed a 4 month internship at ESA ESTEC. At ESA I performed a brief study on the possible implementation of ESA satellite design data in a nano-satellite design tool made by the University of Delft. Furthermore, I studied cost engineering and cost modelling in general and more specifically cost modelling for small satellites.
During my internship I spend three months working in the Concurrent Design Facility (CDF) where I participated in two official ESA Pre-Phase A mission studies as system assistant engineer. During these studies, the systems engineer and I were in control of the systems engineering aspects such as: contact with the customer, central point of contact for all domain specialists (about 20), requirements management, study planning, the CDF IDM (integrated design model), presentations and documentation. The subject of the first study was a communications and mapping mission to the moon. The second mission was a radiation assessment mission to a near Earth object, carrying a radiation experiment with fish and active radiation shielding technologies.
Thesis at ESA ESTEC, 01-10-2010 – 31-08-2011
After excellent performance during the internship in the ESA Concurrent Design Facility, collaboration continued in the form of my thesis work. The main thesis question is: “Can SysML add value to the studies performed in the Concurrent Design Facility”.
In answering the thesis question I have investigated several aspects of Model Based Systems Engineering (MBSE). I am looking into model based systems engineering, methodologies, tools and MBSE languages, in particular the Systems Modeling Language (SysML). After a three month literature study into the subject I have developed a study modeling template in preparation of a case study. The case study was the application of MBSE using SysML with the modeling template to a Pre-Phase A study performed in the Concurrent Design Facility. The subject of the performed study was an assessment study of a human space mission to an asteroid. The case study work was carried out by participating actively as part of the systems engineering team. The preliminary conclusion of the thesis work is that by introducing MBSE using SysML in the CDF significantly increases the overall quality of the performed studies. The result is an increase in consistency, better documentation of the trade process and design decisions, more consolidated requirements management and a better overview of study management aspects. The thesis work will continue until the end of August 2011.
