The Application of Model-Based Systems Engineering – Model Based Matters ep. 1

Model-based systems engineering (MBSE) has transformed how industries approach the design and build process. It has enabled visualization, simulation, and optimization of products before the actual build takes place. These capabilities have made it an integral part of all industries that are dealing with increased product complexity.

This is the first episode of an exciting series on model-based systems engineering. I am Nick Finberg of Siemens Global Marketing, and joining me is Tim Kinman, Vice President of Trending Solutions and Global Program Lead for Systems Digitalization at Siemens Digital Industries Software. Tim will help us understand how model-based systems engineering is impacting the automotive industry.

In this episode, you’ll find out what model-based systems engineering entails and the problems that it helps solve. We’ll explore its real-life application to show the role it plays and the benefits it offers. We’ll also discuss the concepts of systems engineering and systems of systems engineering.

What You’ll Learn in this Episode:

  • What is meant by model-based systems engineering (01:43)
  • What is meant by the word system in an automobile context (02:34)
  • The role of an information management system (07:22)
  • How MBSE handles the security of the devices connected to the internet (09:26)
  • The difference between systems engineering and systems of systems engineering (15:22)
