Learn a Simple MBSE Process

Is Model Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) something new? No, MBSE methods and techniques have been individually practiced by many good engineers and analyst. The problem has been that project management has been obsessed with ‘deliverable documents’ rather than delivering an engineering data/models that can be used to support analyses, end-to-end traceability, and automatically produce the deliverable documents from the data-model.

  • The engineering data-model usually consists of entities, attributes, relationships, and diagrams that specify the system architecture.
  • Remember a diagram (graphical model) is worth a thousand words. These diagrams aid in communicating ideas/concepts among project personnel and the customer.
  • A common misconception is that SysML is required to do MBSE. Not true, but if SysML becomes the standard language used by systems engineers then its use can reduce the many communication issues experienced by project stakeholders.
