    INCOSE Hampton Roads April Chapter Meeting (Virtual)

    Presentation by: Dr. Warren Vaneman

    Topic: Model-Based Systems Engineering De-Mystified

    Time: Apr 23, 2020 05:00 PM Eastern Time

    Abstract Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) is an ambiguous concept that means many things to many different people. The purpose of this presentation is to “de-mystify” MBSE, with the intent of moving the sub-discipline forward. Model-Based Systems Engineering was envisioned to manage the increasing complexity within systems and System of Systems. This presentation defines MBSE as the formalized application of modeling (static and dynamic) to support system design and analysis, throughout all phases of the system lifecycle, and through the collection of modeling languages, structures, model-based processes, and presentation frameworks used to support the discipline of systems engineering in a model-based or model- driven context. Using this definition, the components of MBSE (modeling languages, processes, structures, and presentation frameworks) are defined from a language and tool agnostic perspective.

    Biography Dr. Warren Vaneman is a Professor of Practice in the Systems Engineering Department at the Naval Postgraduate School, Monterey, CA. He has more than 30 years of leadership and technical positions within the U.S. Navy and the Intelligence Community. Dr. Vaneman has been conducting research in Model-Based Systems Engineering and System of Systems since July 2011. To enhance his research efforts Dr. Vaneman teaches several courses in Systems Engineering and Architecting and System of Systems Engineering and Integration. Prior to joining NPS, Dr. Vaneman has held various systems engineering positions within the Intelligence Community, including as the Chief Architect of the for a very large System of Systems. Dr. Vaneman is also a Retired Captain in the Navy Reserve, where he was qualified as a Surface Warfare Officer, Space Cadre Expert, and Information Dominance Warfare Officer. He has a B.S. from the State University of New York Maritime College, a M.S. in Systems Engineering, and a Ph.D. in Industrial and Systems Engineering from Virginia Tech, and a Joint Professional Military Education Phase 1 Certificate from the Naval War College.
