Scientific research results achieved together with partners from industry and academia by the Technical University of Munich show that the introduction of model-based system development of cyber-physical systems into the industrial development process offers a wide range of benefits, but requires a readjustment of the development. This concerns the development method, artifacts, tools and organization. So far, the industrial introduction of MBSE often uses the modeling language SysML as a quasi-standard, which is firmly established in practice by tool providers and standardization organizations. However, the analysis of the introduction projects shows that SysML is currently often used without a consistent development methodology, which (i) specifies which models are created and how these models are interrelated, and (ii) provides a precise understanding of the diagrams. Thus, crucial potential offered by MBSE remains unused, because ultimately the well-coordinated selection of methodology, modeling language and modeling tool is a crucial factor for a successful application of MBSE in industrial practice. The project "SysML Workbench for the SPES Methodology" (SpesML), funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and involving a total of 11 partners from industry and research as well as 2 active associated partners, aims to close this gap and to show ways for a successful implementation of the MBSE methodology in industry.

With the Software Platform for Embedded Systems (SPES), an end-to-end methodology for MBSE has been developed. On this basis, a SysML profile with a precise semantics that can be used for automation such as automated analysis and simulation, is defined in SpesML. This gives the widely used modeling language SysML a methodological foundation and thus opens the way to comprehensive MBSE.

Key messages in the webinar:

  • Challenges in the implementation of MBSE
  • Introduction into basic concepts of the SPES methodology
  • Implementation of initial concepts in SysML within the SpesML Workbench based on Magic Draw
MBSE maturity model as a proven approach for practical MBSE implementation.
