A Systems Architecture and Modeling Challenge – Recap of the First Annual World Championships


The Challenge: Solving Fictional Mesa Cerveza’s Power and Water Supply Problem

The first-ever World Championships of Systems Architecture and Modeling was held June 5 in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Participants competed head-to-head with the world’s best systems modelers using the model-based systems engineering tool of their preference to develop a response to a real-world engineering problem.

The event provided individuals and teams a chance to exhibit their skills, creativity, and ability to thrive under time constraints.

Learn about the problem statement: developing a long-term systems solution to the city of Mesa Cerveza’s water and power supply problems. Hear from the individual winner and a judge and learn what it was like to participate.
