Co-hosted by the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory and the INCOSE Chesapeake Chapter

Symposium Theme: “Model-Based Systems Engineering: Challenges and Opportunities”
Abstract: While much progress has been made in the standardization and adoption of MBSE, its practice has yet to become ubiquitous. Many challenges to widespread practice of MBSE still exist, and Systems Engineering is at a tipping point between traditional document-based techniques and new model-based techniques. Nevertheless, new methodologies, ever-improving tools, maturing standards, lessons learned, and success stories continue to emerge to support and drive the practice of MBSE. This symposium will provide attendees with a look at the current state-of-practice for MBSE through the eyes of four experts who are “on the front lines” in the fight to make MBSE the de-facto way we do business.
