Reference: BE-32
Duration: 5 Day(s)


MBDA has developed a Model Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) process, using SysML and UML, based on their existing Systems Engineering Policy.

This course has been specifically designed to teach the concepts of Model Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) within the context of MBDA's Systems Engineering Process and MBSE methodology. It focuses on the practical application of MBSE using the MBDA Architecture Framework.

Delivered in the form of a workshop, this course combines theoretical knowledge with practical application and encourages collaboration between delegates to develop a design solution.

The course uses an MBDA specific example to ensure that knowledge is transferred in a way which will allow the delegates to immediately apply an MBSE approach to their project.
