Chapter 2. Model-Based Systems Engineering
Chapter 2 summarizes model-based systems engineering (MBSE) concepts to provide further context for SysML without emphasizing a specific modeling language, method, or tool. MBSE is contrasted with the more traditional document-based approach to motivate the use of MBSE and highlight its benefits. Principles for effective modeling are also discussed including a discussion on model-based metrics.
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 ...
