Meeting Flyer


Introduction for the June & August C-NO Chapter Meetings:  System design has been enhanced by the power of Computer-Aided Design (CAD) tools for the past few decades. While these CAD tools have advanced mechanical, electrical, thermal, and other engineering disciplines, systems engineering generally remains a document-centric practice. Recent advances in system modeling are beginning to transition systems engineering to the CAD era. Model-Centric Engineering aims to integrate discipline-specific models with a shared system model. Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) incorporates system requirements, design analysis, and verification and validation activities – across the system lifecycle – within this shared system model. Join fellow C-NO Chapter Members and local MBSE practitioners in an interactive MBSE review session. As a group, we will review NASA-produced overviews of MBSE and system modeling. The MBSE practitioners will answer questions and facilitate group discussion of fundamental MBSE concepts and implementation approaches. The June and July discussions will inform the C-NO Board of Directors toward development of customized, hands-on training in the Systems Modeling Language (SysML) and an MBSE tool. The resulting C-NO Chapter MBSE Tutorial will be scheduled for Fall 2014.

Topics to be Covered:  What we mean by “system models”; what makes a good system model; basics of the Systems Modeling Language (SysML); how to customize SysML for your domain; MBSE methodologies; and examples of how NASA incorporates MBSE within its systems engineering processes.
