Abstract : System modelling has been an enduring method of enquiry supporting systems analysis and design synthesis in systems engineering for decades. New generation systems modelling tools provide sophisticated modelling capability, coined Model-based Systems Engineering (MBSE). The underpinning fundamentals of systems engineering and MBSE are scrutinised in the context of the current Defence capability development process and enterprise architecture initiatives. The capabilities, relevance, and utility of new generation MBSE tools and methodologies are then examined, contrasting Defence and industry perspectives to reveal potential implications for Defence. Potential benefits to Defence are highlighted together with potential issues of concern. Related aspects of software engineering, enterprise engineering, enterprise architecting and operations research are also clarified to assist unravelling some of the complexities and interdependencies between the respective professional disciplines.
