The primer addresses the basic concepts of model-based systems engineering. It covers the Model, Language, Behavior, Process, Architecture, and Verification and Validation. It is a call to the consideration of the foundational principles behind those concepts. It is not designed to present novel insights into MBSE so much as to provide a guided tour of the touchstones of systems design. It is a guide to the new MBSE acolyte and a reminder to the experienced practitioner. It is suitable for use by a systems engineer new to the practice of “model-based” systems engineering, an experienced systems engineer who has been introduced to “model-based” concepts in an ad hoc fashion or by any professional knowledgeable of systems thinking and practice. It is not intended as a comprehensive guide or as practice handbook.

Thank you for sending the copy of the Primer. I already have two copies; however, for the systems engineering staff that I manage, it has been a very informative book to familiarize them with the MBSE process.

What will you learn from this book?

WHAT IS A SYSTEM?

Systems exists wherever these three parts are present: parts, relationships, and a purpose.

WHAT IS SYSTEMS ENGINEERING?

Systems engineering is concerned with the design, building, and use of systems composed of concrete entities such as engines, machines, and structures. It is equally concerned with business systems, which are composed of processes.

WHAT IS A MODEL?

Models are common to human experience as aids for understanding the way the world works.

WHAT IS MODEL-BASED SYSTEMS ENGINEERING?

Model-based systems engineering (MBSE) is fundamentally a thought process.  It provids the framework to allow the systems engineering team to be effective and consistent right from the start of any project.
