Modeling Style, Use and Management

Course Description

Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) is the formalized application of modeling to support the systems engineering process in terms of requirements development, design, analysis, verification, and validation activities throughout the system lifecycle. The power and flexibility of both the MBSE approach and the use of modeling languages such as the Object Management Group Systems Modeling Language (OMG SysML™) can become liabilities if not employed properly. While each organization can adopt MBSE and SysML to suit specific purposes, the need for a coherent, structured approach to implementation quickly becomes evident, especially as models begin to persist over time. This course will introduce you to the concepts of model style, usage, and management to enhance collaboration and efficiency in modeling efforts, especially as models grow in both size and complexity.
