Concepts and Applications of Model-Based Systems Engineering

In hands-on practice, apply Model Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) methods using the Systems Engineering Modeling Language (SysML) tool and understand the power of their combination. Learn how MBSE compares with other SE methodologies, and how to integrate MBSE into existing programs. Effective MBSE relies on engineers to develop their ability as systems thinkers; i.e., thinking in different perspectives and developing that flexibility. Appreciate MBSE benefits for integrating the various disciplines, perspectives, and flexibility needed for modern, complex technical endeavors. Each MBSE concept is explored through hands-on lab exercises applying MBSE using SysML to a standard general-interest, real-world problem. Participants build MBSE skills by developing SysML models applicable to the course sample problem. For example, participants employ SysML parametrics to perform calculations on system properties to verify requirements of modeled elements allocated to the system design.

    Topics Include:
  • MBSE methodologies
  • MBSE related to SE methodologies and frameworks
  • Systems lifecycle
  • MBSE opportunities, pitfalls, and risks
  • Basic modeling concepts
