INCOSE-LA Chapter Speaker Meeting: MBSE Three Ways – A Trio of Case Studies to Satisfy Any Appetite

Topic: MBSE Three Ways – A Trio of Case Studies to Satisfy Any Appetite

Abstract: As systems engineers, we possess a unique set of tools that allow us to characterize our worlds.  These insights are very powerful in understanding and improving systems – whether those systems are natural, man-made, or social.  Prepare for a feast of epic proportions crafted from three case studies that showcase the power of MBSE in characterizing and improving our lives.  We begin with an example of how we can effectively manage obsolescence in an engineered system.  Next, we will evaluate the design of a usability engineering development process.  Finally, we’ll see how MBSE was used to characterize the cycle of homelessness, and how this characterization can lead to better implementation of relief efforts.

Speaker: Casey Medina is currently President of Studio SE, Ltd., a systems engineering design and consulting firm and instructor for the Caltech Center for Technology and Management Education.  He has worked in quality and systems engineering roles with JustRight Surgical, LLC, Terumo BCT, Covidien (now Medtronic), and Zed, Inc.

He has developed products in the areas of automated stem cell growth, patient monitoring, pulse-oximetry, blood collections, electro-surgery, and therapeutics.  He holds 12 patents for medical devices and has another six patent applications awaiting approval.  Prior to designing medical devices, he led the creative development team for Zed, Inc. which produced architectural and interior design products.

Mr. Medina is a lecturer at the Ritchie School of Engineering at the University of Denver and the School of Engineering at the University of Colorado and has worked with teams at Dublin City University.  He has trained hundreds of individuals on best practices in requirements engineering, model-based systems engineering (MBSE), system architecture, human factors design, verification and validation, and risk management. Mr. Medina has a BS in mechanical engineering from the University of Denver.

When:  Tuesday March 9, 2021 from 5:30 PM to 8:00 PM PST

Over the course of the year, INCOSE-LA hosts a series of engaging events for the systems engineering community. See our Roadmap for these events, which include conferences, speaker meetings, tutorials, and workshops. So, don't miss out on these opportunities!

We accommodate two different types of Conferences: Conference on Systems Engineering Research (CSER) and mini-conferences. CSER is our biggest conference event, bringing together practioners and researchers from all around the world to one central location to voice their thoughts and ideas on the subject of systems engineering. CSER subjects can range from system architectures to systems of systems. On the other end of the spectrum, mini-conferences are an abbreviated version of CSER. We host intimate one-day mini-conference events, which include a few keynote speakers, technical presentations, and a panel discussion.

Additionally, we offer Speaker Meetings, Tutorials, and Workshops. Each product is designed for a specific purpose and audience. Speaker Meetings are dynamic, educational technical presentations that can be broadcast through the web to reach a broader audience. Tutorials are skill-enhancing sessions for the participating members, who wish to expand their current systems engineering skill set. Workshops are intense sessions designed to reinforce the methods and concepts of systems engineering and empower the creative minds to transform the gained systems engineering knowledge into practice.
