MBSE and Digital Engineering Workshop

An MBSE (model-based systems engineering)/digital environment helps organizations visualize and evaluate their systems and component relationships with digital models offering functional, structural and other specific views.

MBSE can help to minimize the risk develop and verify digital process models and thus minimize the risk of IT implementation projects.

Analysts claim that MBSE environments help bridge the gaps for today’s geographically distributed teams, letting them explore designs and make discoveries together. In other words, the integrated approach makes them more agile in responding to evolving demands.

Digital tools capture and preserve vital knowledge. That knowledge library counteracts workforce transitions, shortens development cycle times of future similar and related systems in a repeatable manner.

With organizations experiencing a digital transformation, it is a good idea to figure out the future process and product architecture before committing to implementation. Model-based systems engineering can help.

Although MBSE is often associated with product and system modelling, it is also applicable to the modelling of IT and process architectures. INCOSE refers to model-based systems engineering as the formalized application of digital modelling.

The Department of Defense has been especially receptive to using MBSE and digital engineering in combination. Creating complex defense systems requires legions of engineers and stakeholders working together, and the DoD knows that online, connected work environments synchronize its efforts to achieve better results.

DOD consequently has set up digital, collaborative, model-based systems engineering environments.

Besides the military, MBSE can be employed to develop a network of satellites and their ground control stations, and it works for anything intricate: A multifaceted service organization can design how to function best as a whole.

MBSE’s integrated data set approach demonstrates many benefits, such as:

  • Improves system quality, consistency and digital traceability
  • Increases personnel productivity and efficiency
  • Early risk identification, ,cost reduction, schedule and performance improvement
  • Enhances communications across key stakeholder groups
  • Eliminates single point failures through collaboration, knowledge sharing, and the exchange of models and their underlying data

MBSE and Digital Engineering Workshop Course by Tonex

MBSE and Digital Engineering Workshop is a 2-day training workshop that covers Model-based systems engineering (MBSE), Digital Engineering practices and tools, as well as methods like DODAF, UAF, UPDM, SysML, and more. MBSE and Digital Engineering workshop will help the participants and lead to greater efficiency and improved quality of all the acquisition activities.

Department of Defense (DoD) Digital Engineering Strategy covers five goals to streamline the DoD acquisition process through the creation of a digital thread enabling the conception, design, and development of complex weapon systems including creation of computer readable models to represent all aspects of the system and to support all the activities for the design, development, manufacture, and operation of the system throughout its lifecycle.

Models would have to be based on shared data schemata so that in effect a digital thread integrates all the diverse stakeholders involved in the acquisition of new weapon systems.

Participants will learn about Model-based systems engineering (MBSE) and digital engineering supporting acquisitions and systems engineering activities of concepts, requirements, architecture, design, integration, verification, and validation.
