Executive Summary
The Systems Engineering Research Center (SERC) research task (RT-48) focuses on a Vision held by
NAVAIR’s leadership to assess the technical feasibility of creating/leveraging a more holistic ModelBased Systems Engineering (MBSE) approach. The expected capability of such an approach would
enable mission-based analysis and engineering that reduces the typical time by at least 25 percent from
what is achieved today for large-scale air vehicle systems. The research need includes the evaluation of emerging system design through computer (i.e., digital) models. The first phase of the effort began investigating the technical feasibility of moving to a “complete” model-driven lifecycle and includes four tasks as shown in Figure 1. The key tasks include:
Task 1: Surveying Industry, Government and Academia to understand the state-of the-art of a holistic approach to MBSE
Task 2: Develop a common lexicon for MBSE, including model types, levels, uses, representation,
visualizations, etc.
Task 3: Model the “Vision,” but also relate it to the “As Is” process
Task 4: Integrate a Risk Management framework with the Vision.
