Abstract:  We have all heard of Model Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) and SysML. It is now time to find out more!

Please join us for a full day tutorial on MBSE and SysML, with hands-on exercises with No Magic’s Cameo Systems Modeler. Prior experience with SysML or Cameo Systems Modeler is not required.

The INCOSE SE Vision 2020 defines model-based systems engineering (MBSE) as the formalized application of modeling to support system requirements, design, analysis, verification and validation activities beginning in the conceptual design phase and continuing throughout development and later life cycle phases. These models provide an efficient way to explore, update, verify, and communicate system aspects to stakeholders, while significantly reducing or eliminating dependence on traditional documents.

During the morning session, the presenters will provide a brief overview of MBSE and the Systems Modeling Language (SysML), a general-purpose graphical modeling language for specifying, analyzing, designing, and verifying complex systems that may include hardware, software, information, personnel, procedures, and facilities. The afternoon session of the tutorial will provide participants with hands-on application of SysML using Cameo Systems Modeler.
