Model based systems engineering (MBSE) has made a name for itself by simplifying product complexity.
In fact, using a standard language goes a long way in simplifying engineering complexities among all stakeholders.
MBSE engineering has the model, or models as the primary data source. Model driven development use the activities associated with modeling to drive the whole development process.
Beside securing the engineering and anticipating the verification of design choices, one of the great benefits of model-based system engineering is the support to Integration, Verification and Validation (IVV) of the system, that is, the solution generally fulfilling the expressed needs.
Additionally, models play a significant role as they are transformed, read, reviewed, released, annotated, changed and reused. For example, cogeneration models can be used by customers to read and understand use cases.
Models make it very easy for the customer (and all stakeholders) to understand the functionality of a project and are a much easier way to review a project than sharing documents.
Although models are not a perfect representation of a system, they provide knowledge and feedback sooner and more cost-effectively than implementation alone. And they allow simulation of complex system and system-of-systems interactions with appropriate fidelity to accelerate learning. In practice, engineers use models to gain knowledge and to serve as a guide for system implementation. In some cases, they use them to directly build the actual implementation (e.g., electrical CAD, mechanical CAD).
Structure, behavior, and operational characteristics of system elements are explored by models. They are also used to evaluate design alternatives, and validate assumptions faster and earlier in the system life cycle.
All this becomes even more apparent for complex systems like medical systems, aircraft and even satellites. In other words, MBSE excels where the solution must be proven practical beyond all possible doubt before.
Additionally, models also communicate and record decisions that will be useful to others. This is crucial information which basically serves as information for compliance, impact analysis and other needs.
Overall, the benefits of using a model based systems engineer (MBSE) approach over a traditional document-based approach are considerable, including:
- Reduced development risk
- Improved quality
- Enhanced knowledge transfer
- Enhanced communications
Models can be either abstractions or representations of reality that facilitate the understanding of complexity. MBSE commonly uses multi-user repository-based modelling tools which provide an environment where a precise and unambiguous world view of the parts of the system and their behaviors and interactions can be defined and managed.
MBSE Training Course by Tonex
MBSE Training, Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE), covers the formalized application of modeling to support systems analysis, use cases, requirements, design, analysis, verification, and validation activities. MBSE Training covers the process that begins with the conceptual design phase and continues throughout development and later life cycle phases. MBSE Training will show the modeling capabilities of MBSE to link all elements of your system to have greater visibility into your design, verification and validation. Learn how SysML used to model structure and behavior of dynamic systems.
MBSE can manage the development and deployment of complex systems without ad-hoc collections of independent documents. MBSE with SysML includes a general-purpose graphical modeling technique for specifying, analyzing, designing, and verifying complex systems that may include hardware, software, information, personnel, procedures, and facilities.
TONEX provides basic and advanced MBSE training includes SysML training covering OMG SysML. Learn about the industry standard for modeling Systems Engineering applications, Agile Modeling methods such as Scrum and Robust Process methods such as Unified Process compatible).
SysML provides graphical representations with a semantic foundation for modeling system requirements, behavior, structure, and parametric equations that can integrate with a broad range of engineering analysis.
