Complexity is often the root cause of systems engineering challenges. But organizations have found they can improve their systems engineering processes by switching over to model-based systems engineering (MBSE).
MBSE uses models to define the system. By using a visual representation of the system, relationships between different parts of the system are easier to see and manage.
This visual reference of MBSE supports the design, analysis, verification, and validation of the entire system. The model provides a common reference across engineering disciplines, so that teams may more easily communicate and collaborate during the development process.
Improved communication leads to greater efficiencies, improving time-to-market. Also, because the system model makes it easier to visualize the interdependencies in the system, the risk of errors and quality problems is reduced, especially when making changes.
Reducing complexity and time and costs when changes need to be made is a one of the major factors why so many organizations are now incorporating an MBSE approach.
Research has found that 42 percent of manufacturers report that design reuse is one of their top systems engineering changes. Reuse is important because it saves design, development and test time.
Also, reusing proven and validated components, subsystems, and digital assets will reduce the risk of errors. MBSE supports a modular approach for developing systems. With a modular system, the system is broken down into smaller “sections.” These smaller sections become much easier to reuse in other systems.
As the design evolves, it is also easier to isolate the small sections so that they can be individually validated to catch problems sooner.
Overall measurable MBSE benefits include:
- Using MBSE for early identification of system performance impacts, resulting in a more effective network performance
- Identifying potential design issues early in the lifecycle
- Detailed functional architectures can cause reductions of actual program test hours
- Comprehensive integrated architectures can result in a significant reduction in interface definition changes after initial design.
