Digital Engineering: MBSE Approach for DoD

Ms. Philomena Zimmerman, Deputy Director, Engineering Tools and Environments,

Research and Engineering, Office of the Secretary of Defense, DoD


Presentation:  Through the ODASD (SE), the DoD is establishing model-based methods, processes and tools for use in acquisition and acquisition related activities. The use of models as a technical means of communication within the systems engineering discipline is understood; but the full potential of the models to support activities in other disciplines is not yet realized. Part of overcoming this realization lies in understanding the basic language and artifact representations as they are; and another part lies in projecting/executing a path forward to keep a loosely coupled community which can take advantage of other’s successes and failures.

Speaker:  Ms. Philomena Zimmerman leads the effort to advance the use of model-based techniques to advance SE concepts in acquisition. She is responsible for establishing the effective use of modeling and simulation, as a systems engineering tool to support acquisition programs, as well as the related efforts in modular open systems architectures, intellectual property, and data rights. Her team supports updates to policy, guidance, and participates in program support activities that are conducted on behalf of DASD(SE). She is also the lead for the Acquisition Modeling and Simulation Working Group, coordinating among the Services and Joint Community on traditional modeling and simulation challenges and products for support to the acquisition community.
