Answering Key Questions About Digital Transformation of Systems Engineering

Course Description:

What is Model-based Systems Engineering (MBSE)? How will it improve my project products and processes? Why is it worth the investment? These and other key questions are explored in the 1-day Essential MBSE course. This course is tailored for project managers, engineering team member and systems engineers preparing to undertake digital transformation in their organizations. Participants will leave with the knowledge and background to more critically evaluate MBSE implementation in their organizations and with the foundation to pursue more advanced MBSE training if needed. This course is designed for project managers, systems engineers, payload principle investigators, subsystem engineers or project managers who are participating in, or responsible for, digital transformation in their organization. 

At the end of this course you will be able to:
✦ Define model-based systems engineering (MBSE)
✦ Explain the MBSE value proposition across the project lifecycle.
✦ Recognize and explain the use of SysML as well as other commonly used systems engineering diagrams and artifacts.
✦ Describe the purpose of ontologies, modeling languages and architectural frameworks and give examples.
✦ Identify various use cases for MBSE artifacts
✦ Use MBSE artifacts to evaluate Project Maturity and Issues
✦ Explain how models can be re-used, integrated and extended
✦ Discuss MBSE adoption challenges within organizations
✦ Embark on more advanced, hands-on MBSE training
