My Recent Papers

Model-based Systems Engineering (MBSE) is the Future of Systems Engineering

MBSE is the formalized application of modeling to support system requirements, design, analysis, verification and validation activities beginning in the conceptual design phase and continuing throughout development and later life cycle phases

Grand challenges for systems engineering 2025 includes:

Model-based systems engineering is a standard practice and in integrated with other modeling and simulation as well as digital enterprise functions

Knowledge and investment are lost at project life cycle boundaries and between projects

Assessment of state of systems enginering includes:

Mission complexity is growing

System design emerges from pieces rather than from architecture
