Goodbye MBSE Engineers?

As we venture into this new era of digital engineering and AI, it’s not about resisting change but rather adapting and shaping it, ensuring that we harness its potential responsibly.

MBSE and AI – Using the FAS Method

Today, I had a chat with ChatGPT. Since I’m giving an INCOSE webinar on FAS, later on, I tested how well ChatPGT can do FAS. I provided some context in the first prompt but otherwise did not specify anything. The result is amazing. The functional grouping, which is an architectural decision, is not bad. If…

MBSE and AI – A Conversation with the Black Box

Read the blog or watch the video at the end (or both :-)! I remember an inspiring exchange with a visionary about 20 years ago. He told me that he would like to have a black box that would simply implement his ideas for him. Instead of focusing on the actual engineering, you spend most…

MBSE and AI – Let’s talk machine

What impact will AI have on MBSE? I’m pretty sure the impact is big, but what does it mean specifically? What is already going on, what can we expect in the future, and what role does MBSE play in the context of AI? Do we even need MBSE anymore?

SysML v1.7 Reference Card published

What’s new in SysML v1.7

Everyone is looking at SysML v2, but at the same time, a new version of SysML v1 has been released. The SysML v1.7 is very likely the last SysML v1 version. This blog post provides a brief overview of the changes in SysML v1.7.

The SysML v1 to SysML v2 Migration

Many companies in different industries have implemented MBSE with SysML at great expense. And now comes SysML v2. What does this mean for those companies? Does everything have to be rebuilt?

The SysML v2 Specialization Kinds

Specialization is an important concept in modeling languages. The upcoming SysML v2 has a solid foundation of different kinds of specializations. This article provides an overview. In SysML v1 (and UML) the concept is called Generalization – just upside down.. It is basically the same, although the details are different.

Should we use SysML Modeling Tools for Requirements Management?

Recently I had an exchange with Fatih Erkan from Philips on the topic of whether SysML tools are suitable for managing requirements. We had a long chat on LinkedIn, followed by a meeting with the Philips MBSE Team (Louis Stroucken, Joshua Shreve, Patric Wender), and thought it would be a good idea to share it…
