How to MBSE Webinar Series

SPEC Innovations’ webinars are back! The “How to MBSE” is meant for those ready to leave behind a document-based approach or experienced MBSE users who want to learn more. This series will provide you with the fundamentals of MBSE and acquire new skills. This series goes through the lifecycle of a product or system starting with the exploration of project requirements. Attendees can peruse the different topic areas and decide which ones they want to join.

“How to Write Requirements”

We kicked the series off with the beginning of the system or product lifecycle: requirements development. In this webinar, we learned how to write, gather, and analyze requirements. This webinar was perfect for those just learning to write requirements or are a seasoned requirements developer and want to learn how to utilize software tools and artificial intelligence to improve your requirements.

This webinar covered:

  1. Gathering your requirements
  2. Baselining and change management
  3. Using AI to manage quality in your requirements
  4. Checking for risk in your requirements
  5. Adding relationships (traced, verified, and satisfied)
  6. Creating reports and matrices

“How to Develop and Simulate Models (with no coding experience!)”

Next in the series, we discussed how to develop and simulate models using scripts. Don’t worry, you don’t need any coding experience to do this. In this webinar, we learned how to develop and analyze models that incorporate cost, risk, performance, and schedule. Using automated scripts, we simulated the models with Monte-Carlo Simulator and Discrete Event Simulator. We also learned how to automatically generate models from the database using requirements documents and other models. This webinar focused on a hands-on demonstration of the model-based systems engineering tool, Innoslate.

This webinar covered:

  1. Creating Action Diagrams with Allocation to Assets
  2. Adding Costs and Resources to the Model
  3. Discrete Event Simulation
  4. Monte Carlo Simulation

“How to Perform Configuration Management”

Throughout the lifecycle, you will be performing a configuration management process. A configuration management process should store, track, and update all data related to the system or product. The key to configuration management is taking a data-driven approach. This approach in turn will reduce your lifecycle’s overall risk and increase maintainability. The webinar host went over a quick summary of configuration management before diving into how you can do this in the model-based systems engineering tool, Innoslate.

This webinar covered:

  1. Importing configuration management guidelines developing
  2. Using Workflows for Configuration Management
  3. Baselining documents
  4. Changing reports with Innoslate’s data history feature
  5. Implementing Model-Based Reviews
  6. Managing complex data

May 26, 2022, 11:00 am ET – “How to Verify and Validate a System or Process”

Does your product or system meet the requirements? Your host will discuss a verification and validation process that has worked for hundreds of our clients to answer this question. Then you will learn how to use a model-based systems engineering tool, Innoslate, to develop your own V&V process document. Then your host will dive into Test Center. Test Center allows for easy test case capture and traceability to requirements and provides the ability to run test cases within one easy-to-use view. Bring your questions because we’ll be answering them throughout the webinar.

This webinar will cover:

  1. V&V process
  2. Test Center
  3. Documents View
  4. Traceability Matrix

June 21, 2022, 11:00 am ET – “How to Develop a Program Management Plan”

SPEC Innovations takes a unique approach with program management called Model-Based Program Management. Model-Based Project Management (MBPM) means that we create models of project processes and other information, capture that information in a database, and verify models using simulation. MBPM will generate all the plans and reports for the project. Reviews of the model can be conducted to determine how well the project is progressing. You can link the project management information with the systems engineering/design information to better understand cost, schedule, and performance.

Using a model-based systems engineering tool, Innoslate, you will learn how to conduct model-based reviews, restrict reviewers, secure information, and enable collaboration with comment summaries. Understand the processes that separate information and how to create workflows for management processes. Bring your questions because we’ll be answering them throughout the webinar.

This webinar will cover:

  1. Program Management Processes
  2. Innoslate’s Program Management View
  3. Application of Model-Based Reviews
