ABSTRACT:  Model Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) can offer significant benefits to organizations responsible for managing increasingly complex enterprises. However, implementing MBSE is not a straightforward task, and there are many pitfalls along the way.
     An incremental approach, built on solid systems engineering architecting principles, focused on supporting major stakeholder decisions, and informed by best practices and lessons learned from previous efforts, offers the best chances of success. Five years of experience in working MBSE efforts at multiple levels have produced many lessons learned and recommended best practices. This report authored by Ryan Noguchi will be briefly summarized in his presentation.
