by Sanford Friedenthal & KYLE WIPPERT
Model-based systems engineering (MBSE) formalizes the practice of systems engineering through the use of models. This class is directed at individuals who are new to Model-based Systems Engineering (MBSE) with SysML, and is intended to answer the why, what and how of MBSE using SysML.
The class is organized into Session 1 and Session 2 over two days. Participation in Session 1 is strongly recommended for those students who wish to participate in Session 2. During Session 1 on Sunday May 20, the instructor provides background and motivation for transitioning to MBSE from a document centric approach to systems engineering, and then provides an overview of how SysML is used to represent systems, and an overview of a MBSE method to specify and architect systems.
During Session 2 on Wednesday May 23rd, the instructor delves into SysML language concepts, and provides basic tool instruction to guide students through the development of a model of a simple system using Cameo Systems Modeler.
The SysML model is a graphical model of the system that captures the system requirements, behavior, structure, and parametrics, and is not an analytical model like Simulink that produces analysis results. However, the SysML model can be integrated with analytical models.
The following books that the instructor co-authored will be available for purchase.
- A Practical Guide to SysML (3rd Edition)
- Architecting Spacecraft with SysML ($24.95 through Amazon, provides straightforward method and example model using Cameo Systems Modeler).
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 from conceptual design, through development and production on a broad range of systems in aerospace and defense. He also was a systems engineering department manager responsible for providing systems engineering people, process, and tools to support the programs. Mr. Friedenthal has been a leader of the Industry Standards effort through the Object Management Group (OMG) and INCOSE to develop the Systems Modeling Language (OMG SysML™) that was adopted by the OMG in 2006, and is currently leading the effort to develop the requirements for the next generation of SysML (v2). He is co-author of A Practical Guide to SysML.
As a senior sales and customer support engineer at No Magic, Kyle Wippert works collaboratively with the company's sales and business development organizations to enhance customer relationships by providing a thorough understanding of the No Magic solution suite. He also assists customers with Cameo Suite technical support and modeling inquiries.
