Future Directions for MBSE with SysML v2

16:30 - 17:30 hours

Model-based systems engineering (MBSE) has evolved over the last several years in response to the need to deal with growing system complexity and increased enterprise agility. MBSE is an approach to systems engineering where information about the system is captured in a system model. This approach can provide a more complete, consistent, and traceable system design than a more traditional document-based approach where information about the system is captured in a variety of documents, informal diagrams, and spreadsheets.

SysML v1 was adopted in 2006 and has been a key enabler of MBSE. Since that time, much has been learned about applying MBSE with SysML. The next generation of SysML (v2) is being developed by the SysML v2 Submission Team (SST) to provide capabilities that address the limitations of SysML v1 and enable the evolving practice of MBSE.  This presentation summarizes the future directions for MBSE and how SysML v2 can support these needs.

About Sandy Friedenthal

 Sandy Friedenthal

Sanford Friedenthal is an industry leader and independent consultant in model-based systems engineering (MBSE). He was formerly a Technical Fellow at Lockheed Martin, where 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 lifecycle from conceptual design, through development and production on a broad range of systems in aerospace and defense. 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 now co-leading the effort to develop the next generation of SysML (v2). He is co-author of ‘A Practical Guide to SysML’ and ‘Architecting Spacecraft with SysML’. He also led the effort to develop the Systems Engineering Vision 2035 for INCOSE.
