Model-Based Systems Engineering Fundamentals

Program Experience

Our popular, expert-led course in MBSE combines action learning and hands-on model making using real-world cases—the skillset to hit the ground running in deployments. This program elevates your team’s capacity to create flexible and robust models, boosting your organization’s ability to deliver value as expected.

You'll learn valuable tools and techniques for effectively modeling and analyzing enterprise level, application level, and/or embedded solutions. Through a curriculum focused on Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) and the application of Systems Modeling Language (SysML), you will gain the skills needed to support systems engineering tasks such as requirements, analysis, design, and test.

With instructors possessing extensive industry and government agency experience, real-world examples and lessons learned will enhance your learning experience. You will have the opportunity to interact with your peers and engage in modeling activities and projects, which will be graded. This virtual, live program fits an off-Friday+Saturday schedule. As an added benefit, Caltech, a preferred educator for Dassault 3DS, provides an educational license for Cameo during the course. 

Benefits

The objective of this five-day program is to focus on systems thinking throughout the engineering process—from gathering customer needs and requirements to systems modeling to integrated design and delivery.

 

You will learn to:
  • Explore MBSE in the context of Model-Based Engineering (MBE) and complex systems
  • Scope and execute full lifecycle MBSE tasks
  • Model structures interactions and behaviors based on requirements and constraints
  • Generate appropriate systems models and effectively managing them through tools and methods
  • Investigate internal and external interactions
  • Assess trades and implications
  • Evaluate, critique, and improve SysML structures and models
  • Craft key representations, diagrams, and use-cases
  • Build confidence in applying MBSE fundamentals to make meaningful contributions to your projects
  • Articulating the economic and operational value of MBSE to stakeholders
  • Plan appropriate approaches for implementation and accelerated adoption
