INCOSE Systems Exchange Café - Oak Tree Café


The next Oak café will be on Wednesday 15th February 2023 at 8.00am GMT  (note there will be NO meeting on the 1st of February.

Everyone is welcome
We are starting a new season of informal café discussion with an open discussion on the topic of Model Based Systems Engineering

This discussion will be run starting with a roundtable discussion where each attendee will have option in turn to share their experiences or opinions about MBSE (good or bad!) in response to prompts below - and then we will have an open discussion 

INCOSE argues that Model Based Systems Engineering is the future for Systems Engineering practice (see INCOSE Systems Engineering Vision 2035)
1.     Is it?
2.     From your experience, knowledge or speculation please comment
        a)       What are the barriers or enablers to the practice of MBSE?
        b)       What are the benefits or downsides from using MBSE to do Systems Engineering?
3.     What is needed – in individuals and organisation – to make it effective?

Please come along and input either your experience, concerns or questions
