Chapter 2. Model-Based Systems Engineering

Model-based systems engineering (MBSE) applies systems modeling as part of the systems engineering process described in Chapter 1 to support analysis, specification, design, and verification of the system being developed. A primary artifact of MBSE is a coherent model of the system being developed. This approach enhances communications, specification and design precision, design integration, and reuse of system specification and design artifacts.

This chapter summarizes MBSE concepts to provide further context for SysML without emphasizing the specific modeling language, method, or tools. MBSE is contrasted with the more traditional document-based approach to motivate the use of MBSE and highlight its ...
