Foundations of Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE)

When:  May 7, 2021 from 12:00 PM to 4:00 PM (ET)
This 1.5-day virtual course provides a broad overview of the processes, practices, tools, and techniques that comprise the emerging discipline of model-based systems engineering (MBSE) with emphasis on practical application. The course examines the “why,” “what” and “how” of MBSE beginning with its basic value proposition. The course focuses on six central themes that comprise the unique advantages MBSE offers—Capturing, Connecting, Controlling, Communicating, Collaborating and Cycling.

In this course, the foundations of MBSE are established by reviewing the systems engineering fundamentals and what it means to “model” SE. Ontologies, modeling languages and frameworks are then reviewed to establish a basis for their use in any MBSE project. From this foundation, participants are guided through a hands-on exercise to model a simple system.
