Chapter Overview 16 April 2009 North Star Chapter Spring Tutorial Identifies the elements and benefits of a complete, proven system engineering process Demonstrates its applicability and contribution towards project success using vignettes from sample Systems and System of Systems (SoS) applications. Illustrates, using examples from Vitechs CORE systems engineering tool, how the model-based system engineering process supports both document-driven and model- based paradigms for milestone reviews; and also top-down, middle-out, or reverse engineering environments. Discusses how to know when each element of the process has been completed, and how to develop and validate functional and physical architectures using executable architectures.
