Abstract: This presentation discusses some necessary considerations in selecting MBSE strategy, processes, and tools. These considerations include the variety of organizational products and services, size and complexity of products and services, phases of the life cycle, and organizational knowledge and culture regarding systems engineering, modeling, and complex, data-based-driven tools. Therefore diversity itself is a multi-dimensional function of organizational history and future plans for products, services, and organizational skills. This situation is made more complicated by a desire not to compromise near-term business performance while introducing new organizational capability. Bio:
