Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) is a key enabler for successful systems development. The Vision 2025 of the International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE) states MBSE will become the norm for systems engineering. You learn and experience the foundations of MBSE and the FAS method in a compact, hands-on online training course.
You will learn the international standard OMG Systems Modeling Language (OMG SysML“) and receive valuable first-hand practices for your daily work. We at oose are co-developers of SysML and actively involved in numerous MBSE projects.
Systems primarily provide functions to their users but are mostly developed component-oriented by engineers. The too-early focus on physical components, for example, the electrical engine, and not on the function, for example, generating power, slows down innovation and prevents synergy effects.
Using the Functional Architectures for Systems (FAS) method, the training course leads you from the system idea, through a use case analysis and requirements, to a technology-independent functional system architecture that is stable over many product generations. Based on this, you make architecture decisions to derive a physical system architecture with concrete components and to detail and model these further. With the help of sequence and state diagrams, you specify system behavior and derive the required interfaces to enable this behavior.
You will apply your newly learned knowledge directly to a practical case study, which you will design and discuss together with the other participants during the training course. Focused on the essentials, you will work with SysML on (digital) flipcharts. You will experience the FAS method using a creative workshop card technique.
As supplementary material you will receive the book „Model-Based System Architecture“ co-written by our trainers Tim Weilkiens and Stephan Roth (Wiley, 2015).
