Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) Courses

Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) Courses: Model Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) has become the new standard for product engineering – and it’s not surprising.

Before MBSE, engineering projects revolved around document and drawing centric processes that contained fragments of information about the whole system. The major downside to this model was that it failed to keep and manage the pieces of information and their connections.

The earlier models also lacked quick access and consistent traceability when project data was examined. It became difficult to assess project completeness, architecture integration, consistency of requirements, change impacts, verification, validation and end-to-end traceability.

The shift toward MBSE utilizing diagrams based on Systems Modeling Language (SysML) has made it more efficient to organize engineering solutions through functions and requirements. Through MBSE, systems can incorporate a wide variety of data such as requirements (functional, contractual, system elements), MCAD, ECAD, software, analysis and validation.

Utilizing the MBSE model results in traceability between these different domains across the product lifecycle.

A white paper published by EmbeddedMarket Forecasters (EMF) sheds some light on the reasons behind the popularity of MBSE.

According to the report, the addition of model-based systems engineering delivers a 55 percent reduction in total development cost. MBSE approaches also streamline and enable product-line engineering. When compared to typical systems engineering endeavors, the addition of product-line engineering delivers a 41.6 percent reduction in total development cost.

The cost savings is due in large part because a Model-Based Systems Engineering approach allows organizations to design before they build – allowing stakeholders to visualize, simulate and fine-tune product specifications with a greater degree of precision far earlier in the product life-cycle — ideally, before project resources have been committed and project schedules established.

According to EMF, this enables organizations to explore multiple solutions or ideas concurrently with minimal risk; manage size and complexity with rich abstractions, and detect errors and omissions earlier in the product development lifecycle, when they are significantly less costly to find and fix. A key advantage of a visual and standards-based modeling approach is that it aligns electrical, mechanical, software engineers and architects – all of whom use differing technology language and toolsets – with a common, whole-systems view of the product under development. It replaces ambiguity with clarity that transcends both engineering discipline and geographic location.

MBSE also provides a common language that is easily understood by all engineers, whether their native language is English or Chinese, and whether they specialize in electrical, mechanical or software engineering.
