Course Description

A gentle introduction to MBSE for beginners. This three-day course covers: MBSE in a Slide, evolution of MBSE in your organisation, modelling (what, where, when, how etc.), fundamentals of SysML, key MBSE concepts. Learning is consolidated through a group workshop.

Introduction to Model-Based Systems Engineering
  • What is Systems Engineering?
  • What is Model-Based Systems Engineering?
  • The need for MBSE
  • The MBSE Mantra
  • MBSE in a Slide
  • The evolution of MBSE in your organisation

This introductory module discusses some of the key features of Systems Engineering, introduces the concept of and the need for MBSE, introduces the MBSE Mantra of People, Process & Tools, gives an overview of MBSE in a Slide and discusses the evolution of MBSE in your organisation.

The Art of Modelling
  • The importance of modelling
  • Structural modelling with SysML
  • Behavioural modelling with SysML
  • The SysML diagrams

An essential enabler for MBSE is modelling. In this course we consider what we mean by a model, why, what, where, when and how we model in an MBSE approach.

We introduce the SysML modelling language, cover the two key aspects of modelling: structural modelling and behavioural modelling, and introduce the key SysML diagrams that are the most useful to someone starting in MBSE. The emphasis here is on how to model, rather than deep coverage of the syntax of the language, demonstrating how to build up a true, consistent collection of views that make up a model, rather than just a collection of pictures.

Overview of Common MBSE Concepts

The key concepts associated with MBSE are described and, very importantly, the relationships between the concepts are explored by looking at how the concepts can be modelled based on a consistent Ontology and Viewpoint based approach. This includes covering such topics as system structure, system configuration, system behaviour, interfaces, needs (requirements) and frameworks.

The Workshop

In order to put all of the pieces together and see how the modelling works, a team-based exercise is conducted throughout days two and three of the course, where the participants get to use the concepts & modelling techniques covered on an example.

Target Audience

This course is aimed at anyone who wants to find out more about MBSE, with a view to developing initial skills in MBSE. The course requires no prior knowledge of any specific notations, modelling languages nor tools.


The benefits of this course are as follows:

  • Understand the need for MBSE and the importance of People, Process and Tools
  • Understand the key concepts around MBSE
  • Understand the activities necessary to see your organisation evolve into a mature MBSE organisation
  • Understand the importance of modelling and its role in MBSE
  • Understand what the SysML modelling language is…and isn’t
  • Understand the basics of the key SysML diagrams and can practice in their use
  • Understand how to demonstrate the benefits of MBSE to stakeholders within the business.

An understanding of Systems Engineering.
