Model-Based Engineering Overview for Systems Management Practitioners
I.D. # C2010 Duration 1 Day

Use of Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) has been growing across industry, extending beyond defense and aerospace to include various commercial enterprises such as automotive and healthcare. Tool vendors are quick to point out benefits of this model-based approach and practices but are not always clear how MBSE benefits can be realized on a project. When deployed successfully, several key considerations should be addressed that maximize the value for a use-case. This four-hour class will discuss the nature and purpose of the MBSE approach and how key information is used for successful MBSE deployment as it relates to Systems Management.

Learning Objectives
By attending this seminar, you will be able to:

  • Describe how Systems Engineering concepts can be captured and represented in models
  • Recognize that system requirements and specifications may be generated from models.
  • Recognize the specific vocabulary unique MBSE
  • List some ways that MBSE techniques could provide value to your project

Who Should Attend

This course is designed for aviation professionals who would benefit from learning how to apply the principles of Model Based Systems Engineering.
