Introduction to Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE)

Model Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) is a systems engineering methodology that focuses on creating and exploiting domain models as the primary means of information exchange between engineers, rather than on document-based information exchange.

MBSE covers value streams that play a crucial role in the orchestration of digital information across mechanical, electrical/electronic, and software domains. They lay as a foundation, a fundamentally different set of work practices, and a refactoring of development methodologies.

Model-based systems engineering (MBSE) applied in the right situations paves the way for designers to work with considerable success at greater degrees of complexity.

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.

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.

Additionally, 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.

The complexity of SoS development lends itself nicely to the MBSE model centric approach, especially a model that can represent the independence of the systems that comprise the SoS.

According to engineering specialists in this area, an agent-based model provides a framework where the SoS and each system are independent entities with individual dynamics and interactions.

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.
