Introduction to Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE)
The advantage of Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) and SysML is the ability to create models/diagrams for the system instead of using documents.
When the systems engineer defines or creates something in a diagram, the SysML tool maintains consistency in all the other diagrams in a process called traceability.
While MBSE has been around for a few years now, that doesn’t mean it’s not evolving like so many other systems engineering disciplines. One of the biggest trends for MBSE is the growing realization that MBSE is not a function of any one software tool, not PLM, not SysML, not requirements.
The goal is the Digital Thread, the complete set of domain models organized, connected and version-managed in a way that allows everyone on the development team to find the data they need to do their jobs. Each discipline and each organization have a seat at the MBSE table.
Implementation of the digital thread is still incremental in every enterprise. Early adopters look for specific integrations that enhance collaboration between team members, speeding completion of tasks and reducing errors from domain model inconsistencies. As they implement the Digital Thread more fully, they realize even greater gains in model validation and verification, which allows deeper exploration of the system design space within project schedules.
Another trend on the MBSE horizon is how the engineering software tools and the digital thread infrastructure that connects them are all becoming scalable enterprise applications, sharing services and data either in the cloud or in on-premises servers.
Standard interfaces such as RESTful or OSLC APIs are expected to help support this, but the great heterogeneity of data, models and use cases will handicap approaches that restrict themselves to these technologies.
Over the past 13 years MBSE has become widely adopted by systems engineers as part of a long-term trend toward model-centric approaches adopted by other engineering disciplines, including mechanical, electrical and software.
In particular, MBSE is expected to completely replace the document-centric approach that has been practiced by systems engineers in the past and to influence the future practice of systems engineering by being fully integrated into the definition of systems engineering processes.
Industries that stand to benefit from the MBSE approach can be conveniently grouped into 12 sectors: transportation and mobility, aerospace and defense, industrial equipment, energy and utilities, architecture and construction, life sciences, high-tech, marine and offshore, financial and business services, consumer goods and retail, natural resources, and consumer packaged goods and retail.
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.
