An Introduction to Model-based Systems Engineering (MBSE) with SysML
Full-Day Training Cost: $299.00

by Sanford Friedenthal

05 friedenthal sanfordModel-based systems engineering (MBSE) formalizes the practice of systems engineering through the use of models. This tutorial introduces the OMG Systems Modeling Language (OMG SysML™) and some of the key language concepts needed to represent the requirements, behavior, structure and parametric aspects of a system. The tutorial also includes an introduction to an MBSE method that leverages SysML to support the specification, architecture design, and analysis of systems.

The tutorial format is a slide presentation with some class exercises. Magic Draw is used by the instructor to demonstrate how the tool can be used to support MBSE, but this tutorial is not intended to provide tool training. The course material is significantly drawn from the book entitled "A Practical Guide to SysML", which the instructor co-authored. This book provides a detailed reference for people who choose to learn more about MBSE using SysML.

Sandy Friedenthal

Sanford Friedenthal is an industry leader in model-based systems engineering (MBSE) and an independent consultant. Previously, at Lockheed Martin, he led the effort to enable Model-Based Systems Development (MBSD) and other advanced practices across the company. His experience includes the application of systems engineering throughout the system life-cycle from conceptual design, through development and production on a broad range of systems in aerospace and defense.

He also was a systems engineering department manager responsible for providing systems engineering people, process, and tools to support the programs. Mr. Friedenthal has been a leader of the Industry Standards effort through the Object Management Group (OMG) and INCOSE to develop the Systems Modeling Language (OMG SysML™) that was adopted by the OMG in 2006. He is co-author of A Practical Guide to SysML.
