Benefits and Challenges of Model-Based Systems Engineering

July 2021 Podcast
Nataliya Shevchenko, Mary Popeck

Nataliya [Natasha] Shevchenko and Mary Popeck discuss the use of model-based systems engineering (MBSE), which, in contrast to document-centric engineering, puts models at the center of system design.

“If an engineer working in one discipline, maybe thermal or mechanical engineering, wanted to add or change something, with just model-based engineering or document-centric systems engineering, they would make the change and analyze their own domain, their own discipline. With MBSE, everything’s in one model, and you can now see the impacts across all the different disciplines that are in the system and have a much earlier understanding of what all the impacts are before you actually start building and implementing. ”

Abstract

Nataliya [Natasha] Shevchenko and Mary Popeck discuss the use of model-based systems engineering (MBSE), which, in contrast to document-centric engineering, puts models at the center of system design. MBSE is used to support the requirements, design, analysis, verification, and validation associated with the development of complex systems.
