Description

Foundations for Model-based Systems Engineering: From Patterns to Models forms a companion volume to bothSysML for Systems Engineering, 2nd Edition – A Model-Based Approach’ and ‘Model-based Requirements Engineering’, both published by the IET. Whereas the previous volumes presented the case for modelling and provided an in-depth overview of SysML, this book focuses on a set of ‘patterns’ as the basis of an MBE model and their use in today’s systems engineering community.


Topics covered include;

  • what is a pattern?
  • interface definition pattern
  • traceability pattern
  • test pattern
  • epoch pattern
  • life cycle pattern
  • evidence pattern
  • description pattern
  • context pattern
  • analysis pattern
  • model maturity pattern
  • requirements modelling
  • expanded requirements modelling
  • process modelling
  • competence modelling
  • life cycle modelling
  • defining patterns
  • using patterns for model assessment, model definition and for model retro-fitting


About the Authors


Professor Jon Holt is a leading figure in the world of systems engineering and the author of ten books in the field of applied Model-based Systems Engineering (MBSE) and the STEM children's book called 'Think Engineer'. He is a Director for Scarecrow Consultants Ltd, works in many industries and has applied his work in many disciplines. He is also a Fellow of both the IET and the BCS and is the current Technical Director of INCOSE UK. Jon also holds a Chair in Systems Engineering at Cranfield University.

Simon Perry has spent nearly 30 years working in all aspects of software and systems engineering and is the co-author of five books in the field of applied Model-based Systems Engineering (MBSE). He is a Director and Principal Consultant for Scarecrow Consultants Limited, providing consultancy, training and conducting research in the application of systems engineering. Simon is a Member of the IET and INCOSE.

Mike Brownsword has spent over 15 years working as a systems engineer in a wide range of industries. He is a team lead and Principal Consultant at Atkins, having responsibilities for systems engineering competence and providing model-based systems engineering leadership in Transportation projects. Mike is a Member of the IET and INCOSE.

Book readership

Foundations for Model-based Systems Engineering: From Patterns to Models is essential reading for researchers and students of systems modelling in academia. It is also recommended to systems engineers and managers, requirements engineers and managers, software engineers and systems modellers in industry.
