Tutorial Description

Abstract: Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) formalizes the practice of systems engineering through the use of models. This tutorial introduces the fundamental principles of modeling and its application to system engineering. This tutorial is intended to give students a basic understanding of MBSE and its applications by describing what a system model is, how it is used to enable systems engineering in real-world applications, and the role of tools in MBSE.  The tutorial format is a slide presentation with some class exercises. 

Presenter:  Dr. Mark L. McKelvin, Jr. is an Engineering Specialist in systems and software engineering at The Aerospace Corporation. Dr. McKelvin specializes in the use of model-based engineering techniques to develop solutions to architecture design challenges for cyber-physical and software-intensive systems. He is also a Lecturer in the System Architecting and Engineering graduate program at the University of Southern California, Viterbi School of Engineering where he teaches courses in Model-Based Systems Engineering and Systems Engineering Theory and Practice. Prior to joining the Aerospace Corporation, Dr. McKelvin worked at NASA/JPL as a software systems engineer, electrical systems engineer, and a lead fault protection engineer on a major flight system. His interests are in the application of modeling, analysis, and design of engineered systems, including cyber-physical, embedded, and software systems. He holds a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences from the University of California, Berkeley with an emphasis in Electronic Design Automation.
