Four Potholes on the Road to Successful MBSE

As companies attempt to transform their design processes into a model-based systems engineering (MBSE) environment, they often find that the road to transformation is less than smooth. Many of the bumps and potholes in that road stem from the tendency to pick up on a term without being very rigorous …

Two Sides of the Thinking Coin

As is often the case, it is the neglect of fundamental principles that is at the root of poor performance. Sports coaches often stress the return to fundamentals—the “blocking and tackling”—as the key to improving team performance. This is a recognition of the powerful effect that adherence to sound fundamental …

The Meaning is in the Metamodel

Our quest to transition to model-based systems engineering – and the larger transformation of the development lifecycle to digital engineering – centers on moving from relatively low-fidelity documents to higher fidelity, richer representations. In doing so, we can move from the ambiguity of documents to digital clarity, allowing us to …
