Value Focused Thinking (VFT) and Multiobjective Decision Analysis (MODA) in Systems Engineering Tradeoff Analysis

Presented by Terry Bresnick Executive Principal Analyst -Innovative Decisions, Inc. (IDI)

The objective of the tutorial is to link the concepts of Value Focused Thinking (VFT) and Multiobjective Decision Analysis (MODA) to the Systems Engineering Decision Management Process. The course will address in a VFT/MODA context the key components of tradeoff studies to include framing the problem, developing objectives and value measures, generating alternatives, weighting criteria, analyzing the model, and communicating results.

Mr. Bresnick has had more than thirty-nine years of experience in applying the techniques of decision analysis, operations research, and systems engineering to complex problems of government and industry. He holds a B.S. in Engineering from the U.S. Military Academy, an M.S. in Statistics and the Degree of Engineer in Engineering-Economic Systems from Stanford University, and an M.B.A. in Decision Sciences from George Mason University. Earlier, as an officer in the U.S. Army, and currently, as a consultant in the private sector, Mr. Bresnick has demonstrated his expertise in the areas of decision analysis, risk analysis, strategic planning, resource allocation and budgetary analysis, evaluation of competing alternatives, cost-benefit analysis, and business area analysis. He has been an Assistant Professor of Systems and Decision Analysis at the U.S. Military Academy, and is an adjunct instructor of Decision Modeling at the University of Arkansas. Mr. Bresnick is a registered Professional Engineer in the State of Virginia, a Certified Analytics Professional (CAP), a Certified Financial Planner (CFP), and is a Fellow and Board member of the Society of Decision Professionals. Mr. Bresnick was awarded the David Rist Prize by the Military Operations Research Society for his work on an innovative military application of decision analysis.
He is a co-author of the recently published Handbook for Decision Analysis.

 

Essential Model-Based Systems Engineering – Applied and Practical

Presented by David Long, Founder and President of Vitech Corporation

Combine the key concepts of model-based systems engineering (MBSE) with the essentials of their practical application. This tutorial is designed to help you leverage model-based techniques to better meet the engineering challenges of analyzing stakeholder needs and defining system solutions. It addresses the rational for a model-based approach supported by the corresponding methodology, language, and representations.

The tutorial follows a practical top-down system analysis and design example to explore the application of layered MBSE to system definition challenges. The four primary domains – Requirements, Functional Behavior, Architecture and Verification and Validation – are addressed at the architectural level along with the corresponding views leveraged for analysis and communication. The emphasis throughout is on the process for defining and solving the systems engineering problem in an integrated, model-based manner. From the initial problem scoping and boundary definition through the testing of the candidate solutions, this tutorial covers the thinking process which engineers, architects, and analysts use to design and construct solution systems.

08:45-09:00 Welcome
09:00-10:30 An Introduction to MBSE – an overview of systems engineering and model-based systems engineering to establish context, scope, terminology, and applicability. MBSE is compared and contrasted with other SE approaches, establishing the rationale and benefits for transitioning the state of the practice. MBSE Concepts – the basic concepts of MBSE with a focus on the centrality of language to the model. Detailed consideration is given to the importance of language in describing the relationships which bind the elements of the model together with the various ways of representing the model for communication and understanding among the multidisciplinary teams who create and use the systems
10:30-10:45 Coffee Break
10:45-12:30 Why MBSE – the case for transitioning from traditional document-centric approaches to model-based approach. The value of MBSE will be discussed as well as how to tune MBSE for quality, cost, and schedule objectives.
12:30-13:30 Lunch Break
13:30-15:00 An Applied Process for MBSE – a layer-by-layer approach for implementing MBSE to the definition and solution of a problem. The advantages of this critical enabler are explained along with a sample vignette to identify and then discuss in detail the engineering practices and techniques involved (e.g., requirements capture, risk identification, use cases and threads). This section consists of integrated lecture, sample walkthrough, and discussion blending concepts, models, approaches, and representations. The vignette provides and demonstrates a model-based analytic framework that later can be readily applied by participants in capability analysis and system definition activities.
15:00-15:15 Refreshments
15:15-16:45 Model-Based Systems Engineering Representations – a detailed and targeted review of specific representations that support the model-based approach. Various representations will be introduced during the walkthrough of the process. In this section, we discuss both SysML and traditional representations, the criteria for diagram selection, and the specific strengths and applications of each representation.
15:15-16:45 Summary – review of the key messages including critical concepts, notable risks, and benefits of MBSE.
15:15-16:45 Q&A
