Model-Based Systems Engineering De-Mystified

Join us August 30th at 2:00 pm ET for a special guest webinar with Dr. Warren Vaneman. Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) is an ambiguous concept that means many things to many different people. The purpose of this presentation is to “de-mystify” MBSE, with the intent of moving the sub-discipline forward. Model-Based Systems Engineering was envisioned to manage the increasing complexity within systems and System of Systems (SoS). This presentation defines MBSE as the formalized application of modeling (static and dynamic) to support system design and analysis, throughout all phases of the system lifecycle, and through the collection of modeling languages, structures, model-based processes, and presentation frameworks used to support the discipline of systems engineering in a model-based or model- driven context. Using this definition, the components of MBSE (modeling languages, processes, structures, and presentation frameworks) are defined. The current state of MBSE is then evaluated against a set of effective measures. Finally, this presents a vision for the future direction of MBSE.

Innoslate’s Ontology Webinar

Live Webinar June 6th at 2:30 pm EST

Everyone talks about “data-centricity,” but what does that mean in practical terms. It means that you have to have a well defined ontology that can capture the information needed to describe the architecture or system you work with or want to create. An ontology is simply the taxonomy of entity classes (bins of information) and how those classes are related to each other.

You’ll learn a relatively new ontology, the Lifecycle Modeling Language (LML). LML provides the basis for Innoslate’s database schema. In this webinar, we will discuss each entity class and why it was developed. Dr. Steven Dam, who is the Secretary of the LML Steering Committee, will present the details of the language and how it relates to other ontologies/languages, such as the DoDAF MetaModel 2.0 and SysML. He will also discuss the ways to visualize this information to enhance understanding of the information and how to use that information to make decisions about the architecture or system.

Join us live on July 6th at 2:30 pm EST.
