Model-Based Systems Engineering and SysML

Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) is the formalized application of modeling to support systems requirements, design, analysis, verification, and validation activities. The goal of MBSE is to replace the document-centric development process practiced by systems engineers of the past, with a series of integrated models, beginning with the conceptual design phase and continuing throughout development. MBSE provides greater visibility into the system design, and more efficient management of the development process. MBSE is supported by Systems Modeling Language (SysML) is a general-purpose modeling language. The SysML graphical representations provide an integrated foundation for modeling system requirements, behavior, and structure.

This course provides proven methods for using Model-Based Systems Engineering techniques and tools to improve execution throughout all phases of the traditional systems engineering process. Examples of model-based system engineering will be illustrated using a real-life autonomous air vehicle example implemented using state-of-the practice tools.


Participants will learn to:

  • Apply Model-Based System Engineering principles to real-life examples
  • Document requirements effectively
  • Apply DODAF-derived orthogonal reference frames
  • Model systems at two distinct levels: information schema and model instance
  • Interpret three model views: Operational, Functional and Physical


  • Model-Based Systems Engineering methods, tools and benefits
  • DODAF architectures and application to systems engineering
  • Understanding SysML models
  • Operational domain, requirements and architecture
  • Functional domain, requirements and architecture
  • Physical domain, requirements and architecture
  • Verification and validation applications of Model-Based Systems Engineering

Who should attend

Professionals who design, develop, and manage systems engineering, chief engineers, and systems engineers with knowledge of systems engineering fundamentals.
