This webinar is tailored to address a broad range of attendee knowledge and experience with modeling in general, and Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) and Model-Based Engineering (MBE) in specific. The webinar starts with some fundamental concepts that cut across all types of modeling. It then presents a Cyber Physical System for a telepresence use case developed using the Roomba Create 2 educational platform in order to provide examples of MBE and MBSE models and their relationships. It provides recommendations for modeling practices of processes (What), methods (How), modeling modularity and management, and enabling tools. It finally introduces an example of a recommended modeling pattern, and summarizes with some tips for getting started.
Our presenter is Mark R. Blackburn, Ph.D. Senior Research Scientist with Stevens Institute of Technology, a principal at KnowledgeBytes, and a subject matter expert at Key Performance.
Dr. Blackburn has been the Principal Investigator (PI) on 16 System Engineering Research Center (SERC) research tasks for both US Navy NAVAIR and US Army ARDEC on Systems Engineering Transformation through Model-Centric Engineering. He has also been PI on a FAA NextGen and National Institute of Standards and Technology projects and has received research funding from the National Science Foundation. He develops and teaches a course on Systems Engineering for Cyber Physical Systems. He is a member of the SERC Research Council, OpenMBEE Leadership Team and core member of the Semantic Technologies for Systems Engineering initiative. Prior to joining Stevens, Dr. Blackburn worked in industry for more than 25 years. He has been the Principal Investigator to the National Institute of Standards and Technology on projects dating back to 2000 involving model-based tools.
