Model-based systems engineering (MBSE) is a hardware engineering methodology that employs graphical models to represent and build systems.

MBSE, as a subset of digital engineering, has many advantages for systems engineers. One of the primary advantages of MBSE for hardware engineering is that it permits a more comprehensive picture of a system.

Instead of focusing on individual components or subsystems, MBSE takes a top-down approach to design, considering the system as a whole and how all of its parts work together. This allows designers to detect and handle potential problems early in the design process, lowering the chance of costly and time-consuming modifications later on in the engineering lifecycle.

Additionally, MBSE encourages collaboration and communication among design teams, especially in the context of hardware engineering, where several stakeholders may be involved.

Team members can comprehend and contribute to the design more simply by utilizing a uniform system language and representation.

A variety of model types are utilized in MBSE, each performing a distinct function in the design process.

Functional models, for instance, explain the procedures a system must execute, whereas physical models depict the essential components and their relationships.

Other sorts of models include behavioral models, which describe the system’s behavior under different settings, and performance models, which forecast the system’s performance.
