Abstract:  Get ready to hit the ground running in this fast-paced, interactive tutorial!  We’ll explore the capabilities of the SysML tool Cameo to analyze key aspects of our solution space.  We’ll build a real-world model together, click-by-click, that will help us identify and analyze viable alternatives. We’ll then use simulation to select the most attractive design alternative to carry forward.  We will demonstrate key MBSE concepts and a robust, efficient process to explore full capabilities of SysML.  You will leave with  practical model-building experience that you can deploy immediately on the job. All participants will receive a student copy of Cameo System Modeler.
