The combination of Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) and the Agile Systems Engineering process aids in the execution of programs that are constantly changing, are highly complex, and contain uncertainties throughout system development.

Experts in this area believe that establishing an Agile Systems Engineering MBSE approach allows teams to manage change and uncertainties, manage the complexity of a system, foster multidisciplinary collaboration between cross-functional teams, and provide a central repository model as the source of truth for system information.

Implementing an Agile MBSE approach provides teams the opportunity to easily manage changing system requirements and focus on Lean Modeling to deliver capabilities aligning to team-defined iteration goals.

By breaking down model development into time-boxed iterations, the overall quality is increased allowing teams to focus on specific iteration goals to develop and collaborate upon.

At the completion of each iteration, teams receive feedback to ensure customer alignment, overall focusing the team’s efforts on Lean Modeling by avoiding Big Modeling Up Front. This iterative process supports model development by adapting to change, ensuring transparency, delivering models frequently, and ensuring a short period of time where teams fail-fast to learn what specific approaches work.

By defining the approach for combining Agile Systems Engineering and MBSE best practices, the groundwork is laid for successful collaboration and generation of meaningful architectural solutions.

Another major benefit of Agile systems engineering is the reduction of rework. Big design up front means that an untested architecture is used as the scaffolding for design engineering. If later work finds that scaffolding lacking, then significant rework is required because of the baked-in dependencies.

Want to learn more? Tonex offers Agile Systems Engineering Workshop W/MBSE and SysML, an innovative 3-day workshop with a vision of combining Agile, modern systems engineering, MBSE and SysML.

Participants will learn how to work high level users and customers need, create use cases, model system specification, model requirements, structure, behavior and traceability.  Non-functional requirements such as usability, safety, security, reliability, and performance of systems are also discussed in an agile engineering context with MBSE and SysML.

The workshop incorporates agile methodologies, system thinking, model-based systems engineering (MBSE) and System Modelling Language (SysML).

Learn how all these modalities help to define the properties of a complex system throughout the lifecycle of systems development, including ConOps, use cases, requirements, analysis, architecture design, verification, validation, operation, maintenance and sustainability.
