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.
