For the Department of Defense (DoD), model-based systems engineering (MBSE) offers significant benefits to enhance communications, manage complexity, improve product quality, enhance knowledge capture, and improve the ability to teach systems engineering (SE).
MBSE key characteristics has evolved to include domain specific languages and visualization that enable the systems engineer to focus on abstract modeling of the user domain.
These modeling standards are based on a firm mathematical foundation that support high fidelity simulation and real world representations. MBSE also allows for extensive reuse of model libraries, taxonomies, and design patterns as well as standards that support integration and management across a distributed model repository.
Additionally MBSE permits highly reliable and secure data exchange via published interfaces.
For many organizations, digital engineering represents a transformation of how they normally conduct systems engineering. Another way of looking at it, MBSE pushes digital engineering forward.
This has been especially important for the DoD. Digital Engineering is DoD’s initiative that combines model-based techniques, digital practices, and computing infrastructure to enable delivery of high pay-off solutions to the warfighter at the speed of relevance. DE modernizes how the DoD conceives, designs, operates, and sustains capabilities to outpace its adversaries.
By shaping the culture and workforce to collaborate and work more efficiently with an authoritative source of truth, DE incorporates technological innovation into an integrated digital model-based approach to transform the state of engineering practice in support lifecycle activities.
