Introduction to Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE)
This introduction to MBSE from Vitech, now a Zuken company, explains the elementary principles of MBSE in a manner designed to benefit the newcomer and experienced practitioner alike.
It covers the model, language, behavior, process, architecture, and verification and validation. It is a call to the consideration of the foundational principles behind those concepts.
This guide to MBSE is suitable for use by a systems engineer new to the practice of “model-based” systems engineering, an experienced systems engineer who has been introduced to “model-based” concepts in an ad hoc fashion or by any professional knowledgeable of systems thinking and practice.
What will you learn from this book?
What is a System?
- Systems exists wherever these three parts are present: parts, relationships, and a purpose.
What is Systems Engineering?
- Systems engineering is concerned with the design, building, and use of systems composed of concrete entities such as engines, machines, and structures. It is equally concerned with business systems, which are composed of processes.
What is a Model?
- Models are common to human experience as aids for understanding the way the world works.
What is Model-based Systems Engineering?
- Model-based systems engineering (MBSE) is fundamentally a thought process. It provides the framework to allow the systems engineering team to be effective and consistent right from the start of any project.
