MIT Presents: "The Maturation of Model-Based Systems Engineering"
Model-based systems engineering promotes the use of modeling and models as focal design artifacts to enhance the rigor and robustness of systems engineering activities throughout the various phases of a system's life cycle—with an emphasis on the early, conceptual phases. The Object Management Group's Systems Modeling Language (SysML) and Object-Process Methodology (OPM) are the two conceptual modeling languages currently in use. In this presentation, MIT Visiting Professor Dov Dori will: highlight the working principles of OPM, with examples from various domains; explain the differences between OPM and SysML; and present the upcoming ISO 19450 OPM standard. Produced by MIT.
