According to the International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE), we define Model Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) as the formalised application of modeling to support the systems throughout their entire life cycle, encompassing requirements, design, analysis, verification, and validation. We focus on creating 'domain models' as the primary means of information exchange rather than relying on document-based information. In this course, we will cover the fundamentals of MBSE, including but not limited to its definition, the benefits it offers over traditional systems engineering approaches, the valuable tools available for practicing MBSE, and the importance of industries adapting systems engineering. While some basic understanding of Systems Engineering is desirable, it is not essential for this course.

Learning outcomes

Skills/competencies/knowledge that would be gained through this course:

Who should attend

This course is a “Fundamental” level MBSE to get you started on principles and tools and is designed for anyone who is new to Defence Capability Positions or Industry Professionals seeking to gain a baseline understanding of MBSE. The content in this course can be applied to a range of industry sectors with a desire to operate within Defence Systems, including Naval/Maritime Systems, Aviation, Army, as well as Transport, other Government, Logistics, Manufacturing, Information Technology, Security and more. It is desirable that the candidates have some basic understanding of Systems Engineering. However, the fundamentals of Systems Engineering will be covered throughout the course. This course is the first in a suite of courses targeted toward building MBSE competency from Basic to Advanced.
