Introduction to Model-Based Systems Engineering

Systems Engineering (SE) has always used models; embedding the models in model-oriented information technology is bringing both new opportunities and new challenges - some more obvious than others. Similar to the shift to 3D models from 2D drawings, moving to MBSE from document-based SE allows for greater discipline and integration, facilitates analysis and collaboration, and can improve both decision making and SE outcomes.

Gain an understanding of the scope, implications, and practice of Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) that will equip you to effectively exploit MBSE for your projects. Learn about the current state of MBSE, important developments, and how MBSE links to SE architecture frameworks, process standards, and notation languages. Gauge how MBSE can bring rigor to SE processes and facilitate better communication, while using case studies and MBSE tools.

Topics Include:

  • What is MBSE and who is using it?
  • Where in the systems lifecycle is MBSE valuable?
  • What type of projects and systems benefit from MBSE?
  • What are the promises and opportunities, what are the pitfalls and risks?
  • How does MBSE relate to current SE methodologies and frameworks?
  • What kind of skills and tools are beneficial?
  • What is SysML and why should you care?
  • What does your management need to know?

Who should attend?

  • Engineering professionals who have hands-on experience in traditional SE methods or have been involved in software systems development.
  • Current or past participants in the following UAHuntsville Certificate Programs: Systems Engineering, Test and Evaluation, Modeling and Simulation.

Undergraduate degree in engineering, closely allied field, or equivalent experience.
