Model-based system engineering is a methodology that focuses on creating and exploiting domain models as the primary means of information exchange between engineers, rather than relying on document based information exchange. In fact, the audience for MBSE artifacts is not just engineers, but also organizational leadership and even the customer, which means systems engineers need to speak each target audience’s native language. In the push to expand implementation of MBSE methods, various tools have been introduced to create the associated artifacts, but to date, no single product offers a comprehensive solution that meets the communication, coordination, and collaboration needs of every target audience. Just as one model does not fit all, one tool does not model all. In this presentation, you will learn how to establish an end-to-end modeling approach that creates views appropriate for each of your audiences.


Charley Patton, CSEP, is a systems engineering lead for Northrop Grumman, which he joined in 2004. He has a B.S. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from the University of Colorado, Boulder, an M.S. in Business Management from SDSU, and several certificates, including a Systems Engineering certificate from UCSD and a Model-Based Systems Engineering certificate from Caltech. Charley transitioned from software engineering to systems engineering the old-fashioned way – his boss  directed him to derive the system requirements because he was the most experienced member of the project team. From this first excursion into systems engineering, he learned increasingly disciplined methods for determining and documenting requirements and architectures; planned and executed system test and deployment activities; eventually joined the ranks of functional management leading a group of mostly software, integration, and test engineers; and even managed a hardware development team for a year. Today he splits his time performing systems engineering lead functions, responding to proposals, executing technical systems engineering  tasks, and trying to get his dachshund to understand the value of properly documented CONOPS.

STEM Event FlyerPlease join us for our 2019 SD INCOSE Science-Technology-Engineering-Math (STEM) celebration event in honor of our San Diego county teachers and students and their STEM projects, sponsored by the generous STEM donations of San Diego corporations, individuals, and INCOSE members! This year’s event will be held at the San Diego Children’s Discovery Museum in Escondido, CA. This museum provides hands-on educational exhibits and programs focusing on science, art, and world cultures for over 100,000 visitors including children, families and school groups annually. Come check it out!

Tickets to the STEM event will include Dinner and Admission to the Museum! Semi-formal dress code is encouraged for this event. The STEM event will include fun hands-on experience with Science, Art and world Culture activities.

A live ‘Superhero’ stage show will be presented by the Fleet Science Center, as well as a Robotics Demo!

Dinner will include freshly-cooked Mexican food, beverages (please let us know if you would like a vegetarian option)





Last year’s Fleet Science Center demonstration!

Special thanks to our following sponsors for this STEM event and for sponsoring the 2018 INCOSE San Diego STEM awards!!!


About the Children’s Discovery Museum:

Since 1999 San Diego Children’s Discovery Museum has been “inspiring children to learn about our world through exploration, imagination, and experimentation.” Today we remain the only hands-on educational children’s museum in North San Diego County, serving children ages 0-10 with interactive exhibits and programs focused on science, world cultures, and art.

“Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning. But for children play is serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood.” – Fred Rogers

Learning through play is the inspiration for all of San Diego Children’s Discovery Museum’s exhibits and programs as we encourage children to explore, imagine, experiment, and discover through hands-on science, art, and world cultures activities. In each area of the Museum, children learn important skills such as problem solving and observation, social and emotional development, cultural understanding, visual and spatial thinking, fine and gross motor skills, and language development.


SPONSORSHIPS: In addition, INCOSE is accepting event sponsorships for STEM grant teachers and students. Please help support STEM recipient school teams – the teacher and 2 students – to attend this event free. You can sponsor a student or teacher for $20 in addition to your own ticket, or sponsor them alone in the event you can’t make the event. Your help is appreciated – thank you!!
