Just as technology drove engineers to develop and implement systems engineering more than 60 years ago, the increasing complexity of today's systems is driving academia and industry to find better methods to design successful solutions. Traditional systems engineering is no longer enough to completely understand and communicate user needs, required system integrations, and design solutions.
Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) represents the next generation methodology for system design and verification. MBSE truly allows multi-disciplinary, parallel engineering design to occur. This paper will explore why traditional systems engineering must evolve to MBSE, the current state of MBSE, and the challenges that still need to be overcome before it can be fully instantiated throughout academia and the engineering community as a standard for systems engineering (SE).
