INCOSE Webinar: "INCOSE Model Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) Initiative"
Date: 20 April 2011
Time: 15:00 UTC / 11:00 AM EDT
Presenter(s): Sanford Friedenthal
General Webinar Details: Webinar 30
The INCOSE MBSE Initiative was established to help enable the Systems Engineering Vision 2020. MBSE was one of 5 components of the SE Vision. This webinar will highlight the MBSE vision, along with the MBSE roadmap and some of the key challenge team and related MBSE activities that the MBSE Initiative has been pursuing. The webinar will also highlight other industry related MBSE efforts, and some general observations about the state of practice.
Sanford's experience includes the application of systems engineering throughout the system life cycle from conceptual design, through development and production on a broad range of systems including missile systems, electro-optical navigation and targeting systems, and information systems. He has been a systems engineering department manager responsible for ensuring systems engineering processes are implemented on the programs, and enhancing overall systems engineering capability. He has been a lead developer of advanced systems engineering processes and methods. Mr. Friedenthal also has been a leader of the Industry Standards effort through the Object Management Group and INCOSE to develop the Systems Modeling Language (OMG SysMLT) that was adopted in 2006. He co-authored the book "A Practical Guide to SysML".
Mr. Friedenthal recently became an independent consultant after a career at Lockheed Martin. As a Lockheed Martin Fellow, he led an initiative to advance the practice of Model Based Systems Development (MBSD) across the corporation. In this capacity, he was responsible for developing and implementing strategies to institutionalize the practice of MBSD across the LM Business Units. This included codifying and piloting the practice of MBSD, developing the tools infrastructure, and providing training. Mr Friedenthal also provided direct model based systems engineering support to multiple programs across the Business.
