Presentation: Model-based systems engineering (MBSE) formalizes the practice of systems engineering through the use of models. This tutorial describes what MBSE is and the motivation for transitioning to MBSE from a document centric approach. The tutorial introduces the Object Management Group Systems Modeling Language (OMG SysML™) and some of the key language concepts needed to represent the system requirements, behavior, structure and parametrics. The tutorial also includes a short introduction to an MBSE method called OOSEM that leverages SysML to support the specification, architecture design, and analysis of systems.
Bio: Sanford Friedenthal is an industry leader in model-based systems engineering (MBSE) and an independent consultant. Previously, at Lockheed Martin, he led the effort to enable Model-Based Systems Development (MBSD) and other advanced practices across the company. His experience includes the application of systems engineering throughout the system life-cycle for a broad range of systems in the aerospace and defense industries. He also was a Systems Engineering Department Manager responsible for providing systems engineering resources to support large programs. Mr. Friedenthal has been a leader of the Industry Standards effort through the OMG and INCOSE to develop the Systems Modeling Language (OMG SysML™) that was adopted by the OMG in 2006. He is co-author of A Practical Guide to SysML™.
