Advanced Model-Based Systems Engineering

Program Experience

The Advanced MBSE training program is a tailored, focused course for experienced systems engineers looking to improve their MBSE skills and lead MBSE teams. It covers three critical areas of MBSE, including project approach, model creation with SysML, and integrating elements to form a complete system representation. In addition, participants will learn about stakeholder identification, trade studies, model behavior evaluation, user interface design, and more. 

The course is designed to be highly interactive and hands-on, with participants working in teams to build a comprehensive model demonstrating their understanding of MBSE concepts and techniques. Upon completion, participants will have gained a deeper understanding of MBSE and be able to apply their new skills in real-world scenarios.

Benefits

This course is structured to cover three essential aspects of advanced model-based systems engineering. Participants are expected to have experience in applied systems engineering and a working understanding of SysML diagrams and use modeling tools, specifically No Magic, Cameo Systems Modeler, Enterprise Architect, or similar. Participants are highly encouraged to complete the Model-Based Systems Engineering courses with Caltech before enrolling in Advanced MBSE. 

 

Students will learn to:

  • Select the correct representation for the system of interest

  • Develop custom profiles and libraries to capitalize on opportunities for reuse

  • Identify the necessary resources and infrastructure to support an MBSE effort of arbitrary size

  • Understand how to tailor MBSE to a particular application or analysis

  • Develop the framework for an MBSE/SysML plan

  • Perform analyses using simulation capabilities and model execution

  • Confidently and competently communicate model contents, structure, and analyses to stakeholders

  • Develop confidence in deploying the new skills on the job – immediately

Topics

This program is customized to your organization's needs. Some of the topics generally covered are:

 

  • Mobilizing for scale

  • Identifying model stakeholders 

  • Generating custom documents and reports

  • Evaluating considerations in developing model guidelines

  • Customizing the SysML Language

  • Understanding when and why to customize the language using stereotypes

  • Identifying opportunities for reuse and organizing models to support reuse

  • Creating and using libraries

  • Performing trade studies in SysML

  • Evaluating model behavior

  • Designing and simulating user interfaces

  • Configuring simulations

  • Creating a capstone model that combines all elements of the program and topics covered 

  • Sharing and evaluating non-trivial SysML models

  • Applying core SysML concepts, simulations, and customizations to build an accurate representation of your system

Who Should Attend

This program is ideal for intermediate MBSE modelers, systems engineers, and professionals seeking a deeper holistic use of SysML model representations who may be individual contributors or have responsibilities for man- aging other engineers models and project deliverables. Candidate participants include those who:

  • Design and implement development processes
  • Coordinate modeling efforts across projects and teams
  • Need to establish modeling practices and guidelines for their organization
  • Are responsible for creating the overall MBE/MBSE strategy and corresponding deployment
  • Need to build robust descriptive models to plan and manage the development effort effectively
  • Want to unlock the power of simulation in their MBSE process
  • Need to understand the process of creating executable models
  • Need to deploy analyses in their executable models, such as trade studies, requirements analysis, behavioral analysis
  • Would like to coach and mentor in the deployment of MBSE methods on their programs

Successful participants in Advanced MBSE should have the following skills prior to program enrollment:

  • Working knowledge of the Cameo/No Magic, Enterprise Architect, or other MBE toolset
  • Understanding of the core principles of systems engineering
  • Ability to deploy systems engineering fundamentals to create a cohesive, descriptive model of a system from scratch, using SysML in Cameo
  • Ability to perform stakeholder and use case analysis and use that information to drive the generation of requirements and architecture
  • Familiarity with Cameo Simulation Toolkit to support fundamental analysis of descriptive models
