Introduction to Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE)

Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) was developed to replace static documents with “intelligent” digital models that contain everything important about the system — the requirements, the architecture, and the interfaces between the pieces of the system.

Instead of paper documents that were at best organized into folders, these MBSE digital models are connected by a “digital thread” that can be followed to understand the entire design.

The overarching systems architect model (SAM) serves as an “authoritative source of truth” for everyone working on the project. In MBSE, the digital model has a central location that can be accessed by all the engineers working on the project, but cannot be modified independently of others, preserving the single source of truth.

Any changes made are automatically propagated throughout the model and checked for internal consistency and accuracy by the software.

The benefits of MBSE are considerable. For one thing, MBSE improves the understandability of the design by others, reducing life cycle costs by reducing costs or increasing the benefits of redesign to changed requirements (for non-simple design) as well as redesign to respond to obsolescence (for non-simple design) and redesign to correct latent design defects (for non-simple design).

MBSE also permits design reuse.

Another MBSE benefit on the design side is the higher system reliability due to better integration of reliability considerations into design on a real-time basis (DFMEA).

There’s also the opportunity to better integrate design of the product with design of its maintenance system, for improved maintainability and reduced maintenance costs.

Risk due to technology is also reduced with model-based systems engineering because of a greater focus on formalizing how the technology works.

Analysts point out that the model-based design aspect of MBSE helps get design right the first time, reducing development costs and timescales, where the design is not simple for the designers.

Introduction to Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) Course by Tonex

Introduction to Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) is a 2-day introduction to MBSE. Learn about modeling, modeling applied to systems engineering, Systems Modeling Language (SysML) application and more.

Participants will learn how MBSE is applied and how modern system engineering uses models to create structural and dynamic artifacts for conops, system requirements, design, architecture, analysis verification and validation activities. Through case studies and examples, participants will discover application of modeling to systems engineering, the model-based approach to analysis, requirements, design and testing.

For systems engineers, developers, testers, and project managers, Systems Modeling Language (SysML) represents system-related information in static and dynamic diagrams applicable to the system acquisition.

Introduction to MBSE, will explain advantage of Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) and SysML and the ability to create models/diagrams for the system instead of documents.

Who Should Attend?

Developers, systems engineers, testers, project managers, analysts and anyone else who wants to learn the application of modeling to modern systems engineering practices.
