Abstract:  Brian Moon will present an overview of Applied Concept Mapping and its use cases in systems engineering. Concept maps are a mechanism for organizing and representing knowledge. These maps utilize nodes to capture concepts, and lines or arrows to represent relationships between concepts. Concept maps are used to both capture and communicate the collective understanding of teams.  Concept maps are being applied in an increasing number of domains, in part due to their relatively easy-to-understand syntax (unlike SysML!).

Join the INCOSE Cleveland-Northern Ohio Chapter as we learn the basics of concept mapping and discuss its potential applications to Model-Based Systems Engineering.  Presentation to start at 6:00 PM.
