Abstract: As economic pressure continues to mount worldwide, closer cooperation is needed between people, companies and even countries. At the same time, the scale of projects is constantly rising. In order to ensure the success of large-scale projects, the way different teams cooperate is becoming increasingly important. Cooperation between systems engineering and project management is now key in this respect. On the other hand, it is widely recognised that the use of standards can improve the success ratio. Thus, integration using standards or guides from systems engineering and project management can help companies improve their competitiveness. A host of standards or guides have already been published in both domains. The purpose of this paper is to take the most frequently used standards or guides from systems engineering and project management, to compare them and build a bridge between them so as to provide a view shared by systems engineers and project managers enabling them to carry out their projects effectively.

Keywords: systems engineering; project management; standard; guide; process; alignment.
