MBSE Training Crash Course

Model based systems engineering (MBSE), implemented using languages like SysML, is a methodology that has gained a foothold over the past 10-15 years and continues to be refined and improved today.

Through the formalized application of modeling, MBSE allows the development of a system model to support the development process. The model enables a visualization of the process complexity and thus an identification of the essential complexity drivers. This knowledge is mandatory for the coordinated initiation of countermeasures.

Over the past decade, manufacturers have sought innovative ways to reduce costs and increase quality and efficiency as well as needing to adopt digital models to support design and development.

The MBSE approach has been the perfect fit.

A model-based systems engineering (MBSE) approach allows organizations to design before they build – allowing stakeholders to visualize, simulate and fine-tune product specifications with a greater degree of precision far earlier in the product life-cycle — ideally, before project resources have been committed and project schedules established.

Industries that stand to benefit from the MBSE approach can be conveniently grouped into these 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
  • Consumer packaged goods and retail

One of the most significant advantages of model based testing is that it optimizes the software testing time and cost. To further make test execution more efficient, the automated validation tools access the shortest possible path from the start point to the endpoint. Automated test case generation and execution makes the overall testing solution more efficient and less error-prone.

Another advantage of model based testing is that it generates a minimal number of test cases to validate a given functional or data flow to ensure that the system under test works flawlessly and never does anything undesirable. The minimum number of test cases further result in cost optimization for testing.

However, there is a steep learning curve for testers, which is why training programs such as those offered by Tonex are helpful. Testers need to understand the MBT concept as well as learn about modeling and coding.

MBSE Training Crash Course covers all the principals, theories, and techniques associated with Model-based Systems Engineering (MBSE).

MBSE Training Crash Course

Model-based systems engineering (MBSE) is the formal use of modeling to provide system requirements, design, analysis, and verification and validation activities. Such activities initiate in the conceptual design stage and continue throughout development and later life cycle phases.

A model often provides various perspectives to serve different purposes.
