Introduction In this series, we have been developing a model for an electro-magnetic railgun (Figure 1). To this point, it has primarily been a descriptive model, capturing concept of operation, requirements, architecture and mechanical and electrical design. However, a key benefit of Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) is that it can couple the descriptive models with

On July 9, 2018, Dr. Dirk Zwemer, President of Intercax LLC, gave a presentation at the INCOSE International Symposium in Washington, DC, on “MBSE for Electronic Voting System Security”. The primary objective of the presentation was to support three propositions using the example outlined in Figure 1: Figure 1 Modeling Architecture MBSE can provide a

Introduction In many respects, railway control systems (RCS) can be thought of as a pre-digital progenitor of the Internet-of-Things, a distributed network of sensors, actuators and intelligent control that work together to respond to a variety of situations. While there are many different approaches to RCS, modern systems are increasingly based on Centralized Traffic Control

If we could explore the Total System Model made accessible by the Syndeia MBE platform, what kind of questions would we ask? Syndeia 3.1, released May 2017, offers a new feature to help users try out their ideas in this area. The network of inter-model connections managed directly by Syndeia and the intra-model connections in

Part 1 and Part 2 of this blog series have focused on the SysML models of energy systems (and system-of-systems). In this part (Part 3), we will describe the MBE graphs created when the SysML-based architecture model is connected with discipline-specific models such as CAD models, simulation models, PLM models, requirements model of energy system
