Title: Report on the Model Based Systems Engineering Initiative in INCOSE including usage of SysML

Report on theModel Based Systems Engineering
Initiative in INCOSEincluding usage of SysML
  • Hans Peter de Koning (ESA/ESTEC, Noordwijk, The
  • With many inputs from INCOSE MBSE Initiative

INCOSE MBSE Initiative Relation with PDE
  • The initiative will be shortly explained using
    the outbrief from the last workshop held January
    2008 in Albuquerque, NM, USA
  • What is the relation with product data exchange?
  • The goal of moving from document-centric to
    model-centric system/product development
    processes (and indeed complete life-cycles)
    necessitates exchanging and sharing data
    electronicly at different levels of granularity
    between disciplines, customers and suppliers,
    software tools
  • MBSE Grand Challenge studies are leading
    exercises in use of SysML and how to connect all
    disciplines at system level providing
    non-confidential real-world examples and
  • Therefore Model Based Systems Engineering and
    Product Data Exchange are natural partners
  • Reliable, high quality data exchange and data
    sharing are essential for MBSE to succeed
  • High profile initiatives like INCOSE's MBSE Grand
    Challenges provide opportunities for PDE to show
    what it can bring and what areas need to be
    better addressed

MBSE InitiativeOrganizational Approach
  • Chair Mark Sampson
  • Deputies
  • Sanford Friedenthal
  • Regina Griego
  • Activity Leads
  • Foster and facilitate integration of MBSE roadmap
    activities across industry, government and
  • Challenge Team Leads
  • Lead challenge teams to promote MBSE, advance the
    state of practice, and share lessons learned

    and vendors.)
  • Many experts in the field
  • Gained insights
  • Breadth of the problem
  • Common cultural/technical issues
  • Opportunities for reuse/reapplication of
    knowledge from other domains

MBSE WorkshopSummary Day 2
  • 35 attendees
  • Excellent progress from IS08
  • 9 Challenge Teams crossing multiple domains
    (complex systems, transportation, space,
    enterprises, avionics, environmental,
  • Collaboration between Academia, Industry, INCOSE
    chapters, Tool Vendors
  • A number of potential Dissertation topics
  • Use challenge teams as an integrating mechanism
    for the activity leads

Next Steps
  • Refine task/activity descriptions
  • Need to organize to take advantage of potential
    synergies (follow on meetings today)
  • Prep for IS08 track
  • Sort out the support infrastructure for the
    initiative (dashboard, telecons, open web access,
  • Maintain momentum

Space Systems MBSE Grand Challenge
  • The Space Systems example problem is "FireSat" as
    explained in "SMAD"
  • SMAD Textbook "Space Mission Analysis and
    Design" ed.3 by Larson and Wertz"the bible for
    space system development"
  • FireSat is one of the running example in SMAD
  • FirsSat is a well-documented space based forest
    fire monitoring mission
  • No IPR or confidentiality issues
  • Initial problem specification written by HP de
    Koning (ESA) available upon request
  • Currently one team is working on development of a
    FireSat system model in SysML
  • Team consists of MIT graduate students and a
    NASA-JPL lead (Chris Delp)
  • As tool they use Sparx Enterprise Architect with
    SysML extension
  • First progress was reported Jan 2008 at INCOSE
    Int'l Workshop in Albuquerque
  • The INCOSE Space Systems WG is looking for
    additional modelling teams
  • ESA? European Universities? Industry? ...
