About this book
The book begins with a summary of the background and nature of MBSE. It summarizes the theory behind Object-Oriented Design applied to complex system architectures. It then walks through the phases of the MBSE methodology, using system examples to illustrate key points. Subsequent chapters broaden the application of MBSE in Service-Oriented Architectures (SOA), real-time systems, cybersecurity, networked enterprises, system simulations, and prototyping. The vital subject of system and architecture governance completes the discussion. The book features exercises at the end of each chapter intended to help readers/students focus on key points, as well as extensive appendices that furnish additional detail in particular areas. The self-contained text is ideal for students in a range of courses in systems architecture and MBSE as well as for practitioners seeking a highly practical presentation of MBSE principles and techniques.
- Maximizes student understanding of MBSE with a realistic and feasible approach without excessive treatment of modeling theory;
- Emphasizes system architecture and engineering, including hardware, software, controlled equipment, networking, and other system elements, in contrast to the many existing books that focus largely or entirely on software;
- Reinforces concepts with end of chapter problems;
- Demonstrates how to model and manage both functional requirements and non-functional requirements that define overarching system characteristics such as openness, security, affordability, and ease of use;
- Provides a comprehensive introduction to all important areas of modern Systems Engineering practice, including the Model-Based System Architecture Process (MBSAP), Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA), real-time systems, cybersecurity, and networked enterprises;
- Illustrates every aspect of the methodology with detailed system examples.
