Is Model-Based Systems Engineering for you?
The discipline of systems engineering (SE) is widely accepted as the best way to manage the difficult product development process for today’s complex, interconnected products and systems. Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) has often been touted as the next best thing, with a 6-year research project showing a 55% reduction in total development costs compared to projects not using MBSE. But what makes MBSE different from SE, and can it really help improve your organization’s product development process? This paper will describe MBSE and the benefits it is intended to provide, whether it is practical for your organization to adopt and, if so, how to get started.
