Model-Based Approach to Systems Engineering


Icon image of paper and pen

A key part of any systems engineering endeavour is for all of your teams to share a common language. This is a great idea in principle, but the practice is somewhat more difficult to attain.

Day 1:


Key to the MBSE approach is that the model is the single point of truth for the system.

All artefacts (specifications, test plans, requirements documents) are generated from the model. This breaks away from the traditional (and often error-prone) approach of circulating changes to the system in isolated documents.

We consider the need for modelling and the requirements for modelling. We then show you how to build a model consisting of a number of views, which will address particular stakeholders’ needs.

MBSE concepts

Teams involved in systems engineering need to communicate effectively, using a common spoken language and domain-specific language (specific to a discipline, sector or organisation).

We introduce the Systems Modelling Language (SysML) as a common spoken language and the use of an ontology to capture domain-specific language.

The ontology defines concepts in systems engineering, the different terms that teams might use to describe them and the relationships between the concepts.

Day 2:


How do we model a system effectively and in a consistent way? We propose using frameworks (often called architectural frameworks), driven by your organisation’s ontology.

We discuss not just the importance of the framework, but also how to identify, define and implement frameworks which are bespoke to your organisation.

Implementing MBSE

We cover how to make a business case for MBSE, selling it to different stakeholders within your organisation.

With the business case made, we discuss the people, process and tools you will need to successfully implement MBSE.
