Our Goal

The IEEE SMC Technical Committee on Model-Based Systems Engineering (TC-MBSE) was formed to foster and promote formal modeling approaches, languages, and methods that enable complex socio-technical systems engineering. The committee pursues various thrusts within the complex, socio-technical systems engineering rubric, including potential synergies among modeling paradigms, related translations and transformations, and methodologies, methods, processes, and tools, and modeling and meta-modeling languages and techniques. The TC supports organization of conferences, learning materials, best practices, tutorials, sessions, webinars, special issues, and other educational resources related to MBSE. We intend to make these resources accessible to systems engineers, with a view to encourage them to adopt and use state-of-the-art systems engineering methods to support and advance formal, yet intuitive development and evolution of complex socio-technical systems and systems of systems. The TC is involved in international standardization efforts and will serve as a source of professional knowledge on state-of-the-art best practices and on emerging trends in MBSE, with the objective of becoming a center of excellence in MBSE and related concerns.

Recent Activities

  • Encouraging participation of TC members in continuing to organize the International Conference on Model-Based Systems Engineering series under IEEE SMC auspices
  • Organizing sessions on MBSE in the IEEE SMC annual conferences
  • Continuing ISO standardization MBSE activities in TC184/SC5
  • Establishing collaboration with INCOSE MBSE Initiative, pairing the academic focus of IEEE SMC Society with the complementary industry focus of INCOSE (an idea welcomed by and directly supported by INCOSE leadership; INCOSE MBSE Initiative champions are members of the TC on MBSE)
