Systems Architecture Training, Applied System Architecture with MBSE and SysML


Systems Architecture Training, Applied Model-based systems engineering (MBSE) and System Markup Language (SysML) is a 3-day workshop style training program, It covers principles, best practices and methods for technical System Architecture. Systems Architecture presents a synthetic view including techniques to identify system goals, objectives, and boundaries; the creative process of functional specification; and the analysis of complexity and methods of system decomposition and re-integration.

An architecture is “the fundamental organization of a system, embodied in its components, their relationships to each other and the environment, and the principles governing its design and evolution.

Model-based systems engineering (MBSE) is the formalized application of modeling to support system requirements, design, architecture, analysis, verification, and validation activities beginning in the conceptual design phase and continuing throughout development and later life cycle phases. System Markup Language (SysML) based models are system relationship models and are useful for showing relationships among system functions, requirements, architecture, developers, and users. These models support 3 aspects of systems engineering. A set of systems engineering approaches have been defined to address system architecture and design at the system level and integration of the various functions and subsystems into a system.

Who Should Attend
Systems Architecture Training, Applied Model-based systems engineering (MBSE) and System Markup Language (SysML) course is designed for system and software engineers, scientists, project managers, subsystem engineers, Integration, verification and validation engineers and technical people interested in system architecture, model-based engineering and SysML.
