This 1-day course provides a broad overview of the processes, practices, tools and techniques that comprise the emerging discipline of model-based systems engineering (MBSE). The course begins with a review of the systems engineering framework and protocols that establish the context for MBSE practice. We then examine the evolution of MBSE from paper to software and briefly review the concept and usages of modeling languages (UML, SYSML, LML, etc.) and tools. The course focuses on the key value propositions MBSE offers-Capturing, Connecting, Controlling, Communicating, Collaborating and Cycling-with specific examples, lessons learned from applications in NASA and commercial projects. The course concludes with a short hands-on exercise to get the feel for how MBSE tools are used in a practical project context.
This course is for practitioners interested in gaining a broad overview of the MBSE discipline. It can be delivered as a stand-alone course or as part of a modular, concurrently delivered three-day series featuring all three MBSE courses.
