Abstract:

Model based systems engineering MBSE is becoming increasingly more important in the practice of SE. MBSE methods and tools are used throughout the entire lifecycle to generate systems, software and hardware products, and work towards replacing labor-intensive and error-prone documentation-based processes with model-based methods. To take advantage of model-based techniques to develop systems, it is important to improve human and technology integration to make trades and decide on what is most effective given the present knowledge and future uncertainties, as well as make logical decisions based on the availability of resources and constraints. The Interactive Model-Centric Systems Engineering IMCSE research program will develop the SE methods, processes and tools to improve this interaction, with the goal of accelerating the transition of SE to become a more model-based discipline. The IMCSE research program aims to develop transformative results through enabling intense human-model interaction, to rapidly conceive of systems and interact with models in order to make rapid trades to decide on what is most effective given present knowledge and future uncertainties, as well as what is practical given resources and constraints.
