SAFe with MBSE for System Engineers

It is only within the last five years that the Scaled Agile Framework has accommodated Systems Engineering. A focus of the accommodation is on incorporating Model Based System Engineering (MBSE) into the Framework.

Here we introduce a particular way to use MBSE in the context of the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe). We want to iteratively build a model of the system in order to compose the Requirements Specification and identify the Features to be built in successive Program Increments (PIs). That is, it in a nutshell. The model is built in a set of workshops prior to and during each PI.

Workshops are face-to-face meetings, for primarily the Architects and Systems Engineers, that create a shared understanding across customers, users, domain experts, product owners and teams. Along with the System Engineers, these other groups will have representation in the workshops. They record system structure, behavior, and information decisions in SysML using a Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) approach. The workshops align everyone on a common approach to building a solution while discovering and driving work in the agile backlog.


Peter Luckey, a Senior Solutions Consultant at 321 Gang, is a Certified Scrum Master and a Certified SAFe Program Consultant (4.5). He received his master’s degree in computer science from Purdue University. Peter began his professional career in IBM’s Federal Systems Division as a programmer and then became the manager of IBM’s Rational Software Development Environment. Concurrently, Peter worked as an Adjunct Associate Professor at the State University of New York Binghamton teaching software engineering and publishing a number of papers on the subject. Since joining Rational, Peter has been involved in selling and supporting Rational, now IBM, tools and the processes supported by these tools. These processes include topics such as Agile, MBSE, and SAFe. Recently, Peter has also become Certified relative to Polarion/ALM.
