Model Based System Engineering (MBSE) is a megatrend in modern software and systems engineering – the key element in larger engineering transformation initiatives. Model-based, not document-based, MBSE clarifies understanding and has been empirically proven to significantly accelerate development projects.

This 3-day course provides a solid grounding in MBSE project processes and how to build robust models using SysML notation and diagrams. Attendees will receive a solid grounding in MBSE and SysML with the understanding and confidence to participate and be successful as modern-day system engineers.

This course helps prepare for the OCSMP and APMG Certifications.
