Mastering Requirements Using MBSE


Discover how modelling can help you with requirements engineering. Use modelling for effective identification, analysis, validation and specification of requirements.

On this course you will learn to:

  • use the Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) approach for requirements engineering and management
  • consider requirements in context, so that you draw out more detail and address them properly
  • understand the importance of requirements engineering and its role in system and project life cycles
  • master essential requirements terminology and concepts
  • implement a model-based requirements approach for your organisation

Who should attend?

Engineers, scientists or managers who deal with requirements engineering or management. No previous experience of modelling is required for this course. 


Introduction to MBSE

  • MBSE in one slide
  • Evolution of MBSE in your organisation

Introduction to Requirements Engineering

  • The importance of the requirements
  • The need for requirements engineering
  • Requirements engineering vs requirements management modelling

Essential requirement terminology and concepts

  • Requirements sources
  • Requirement description
  • Requirement rules
  • Stakeholder identification
  • Context identification
  • Validation of requirements
  • Building a domain-specific language for requirements, using an ontology 

Implementing a Model-Based requirement approach

  • Creating are requirements framework based on the requirements ontology
  • The people, process and tools you will need to successfully put the strategy into effect.

Alignment with UK-SPEC competence

Course tutors

All courses are delivered by Professor Jon Holt and Simon Perry. Both are internationally recognised authors, tutors and public speakers in the world of requirements engineering. Between them, they have authored fifteen books covering many aspects of systems modelling, including process, modelling, competence, architectures and, of course, requirements engineering.
