Orlando Chapter

Welcome to the INCOSE-Orlando Chapter!

The mission of the Orlando chapter of the International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE) is to drive success in engineering programs for engineering organizations in industry, academia, and government and drive up the capabilities of its professionals including top executives and practicing engineers.

We host monthly presentations offering a topic that supports the goals for acquiring dramatic speed, precision, interoperability, and innovation using systems engineering and other practices.

Our Chapter Presentations are open to the professional community in Central Florida (with RSVP). The event begins with a free buffet dinner as a courtesy to our guests and members followed by one or two presenters who represent local organizations. The goal is to share knowledge, techniques, and success stories to drive improvement in product delivery throughout our community.

Our meetings occur on the second Thursday of the month starting at 5:30pm at Rocket Technology HQ, which houses our INCOSE-Orlando office, at 13501 Ingenuity Drive, Suite 232, Orlando, Florida 32826.

Please check our calendar for the latest meeting date and topic.

About the Presentation:
The Systems Modeling Language v2 is the next-generation Systems Modeling Language to support the evolving practice of model-based systems engineering and address the challenges of increasing system complexity and technology changes. The objectives for SysML v2 are to increase MBSE effectiveness and MBSE adoption over SysML v1 by making significant improvements in language precision, expressiveness, regularity, interoperability, usability, and extensibility. The SysML v2 beta specifications were approved by the Object Management Group in June, 2023 and finalization is expected in 2024.  This presentation will provide highlights of the language, contrast SysML v2 with SysML v1, and discuss some considerations for transitioning from SysML v1 to SysML v2.
About the Presenter:
Sanford Friedenthal is an industry leader and independent consultant in model-based systems engineering (MBSE). He was formerly a Technical Fellow at Lockheed Martin, where he led the effort to enable Model-Based Systems Development (MBSD) and other advanced practices across the company. 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 more recently co-lead the effort to develop the next generation of SysML (v2). He is co-author of ‘A Practical Guide to SysML’ and ‘Architecting Spacecraft with SysML’.

Practical SE Series: 7:30
Following the featured presentation we will have a brief presentation with prescriptive guidance for using the Unified Architecture Framework Modeling Language (UAFML).
