The first in the series of ‘Don’t Panic!’ books, ‘Don’t Panic! The Absolute Beginner’s Guide to Model-Based Systems Engineering’ is aimed at Systems Engineers, managers, board members, students and anyone who is seriously interested in using modelling to enhance and improve their existing Systems Engineering activities. The book is not intended to be used as a definitive reference (although everything in this book is based on facts and best practice) but as a gentle introduction into the fascinating and powerful world of Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE).
The book is published by INCOSE UK and was officially launched in June 2017 at their Tutorial Day in Bristol.
‘Don’t Panic! The Absolute Beginner’s Guide to Model-Based Systems Engineering’ is written by Jon Holt (current Technical Director of INCOSE UK) and Simon Perry who, between them, have written 17 books on Model-based Systems Engineering. This book is intended to be used as a primer for MBSE for people who are new to the area. With this in mind, there are a number of key points that the book addresses:
- To nip in the bud bad practice and common pitfalls that the authors have learned the hard way
- To dispel some of the many myths and misconceptions associated with MBSE
- To spell out some of the fundamental MBSE concepts that must be understood
- To alleviate people’s fears concerning MBSE and its adoption in their business
- To highlight some of the many benefits (some obvious, but many not-so-obvious) associated with MBSE
This book is intended to be simple enough to give to anyone with good common sense and a modicum of technical knowledge a clear understanding of exactly what MBSE is and what it isn’t. The book is also intended to be a stepping stone into the more advanced areas of MBSE, such as implementing MBSE into your business, getting involved with the wider MBSE community and generally getting your hands dirty on real projects. The authors have attempted to answer some of the many, many questions and concerns that people have so that you can pre-empt these in your own working practice.
‘Don’t Panic! The Absolute Beginner’s Guide to Model-Based Systems Engineering’ is published by INCOSE UK and is available to buy to anyone with an interest in Model-Based Systems Engineering. It may be purchased through INCOSE UK.
