Model Based System Engineering with SysML Training

Level: Foundation

Model Based System Engineering (MBSE) is a megatrend in modern software and systems engineering – the key element in larger engineering transformation initiatives. Model based, not document based, MBSE clarifies understanding, and has been empirically proven to significantly accelerate development projects. This 3-day course provides a solid grounding in MBSE project processes and how to build robust model using SysML notation and diagrams. Attendees will receive solid grounding in MBSE and SysML with the understanding and confidence to participate, and be successful as a modern-day system engineer.

Key Features of this Model Based System Engineering Training:

  • Learning Tree end-of-course exam included
  • After-course instructor coaching benefit
  • After-course computing sandbox

You Will Learn How To:

  • Explain the six goals of Model Based System Engineering
  • Transition through the four pillars of MBSE from Requirements to Structure to Behavior to Parametrics
  • Create and relate all 9 SysML diagrams with understanding of the underlying model
  • Structure the model for testing, validation and requirements satisfaction
