Developing Complete and Validation Requirements

Presenter: Ronald S. Carson, PhD, INCOSE Fellow

 
Biography

Dr. Ron Carson is an Adjunct Professor of Engineering at Seattle Pacific University, an Affiliate Assistant Professor in Industrial and Systems Engineering at the University of Washington, a Fellow of the International Council on Systems Engineering and a certified Expert Systems Engineering Professional.

He retired in 2015 as a Technical Fellow in Systems Engineering after 27 years at The Boeing Company. He is the author of numerous articles regarding requirements analysis, failure modes and effects analysis, and systems engineering measurement. His current interests are in quantitatively incorporating sustainability considerations in systems engineering methodologies and education. Dr. Carson has a PhD from the University of Washington in Experimental Plasma Physics, and a BS from the California Institute of Technology in Applied Physics.

Abstract
Requirements development has evolved from user requirements elicitation to complex simulation using MBSE. In this presentation Dr. Ron Carson will describe the current best practices in requirements development and validation and show the evolution of good requirements development. References to and summaries of his many INCOSE conference papers will be provided to show this evolution, including anomaly handling and completeness criteria, structured requirements, quality measurements, and the use of MBSE to facilitate good requirements development and validation.

Geographic Information System (GIS) - Mapping the Way to a Sustainable World - A Digital Transformation

Presenter: Bill Meehan, PE, Director, Electric Utility Solutions, Esri

 
Biography

Bill Meehan is the author of four books: Geographic Information Systems (GIS) for Enhanced Electric Utility Performance, Modeling Electric Distribution with GIS, Empowering Electric and Gas Utilities with GIS and Power System Analysis by Digital Computer. His blogs have been widely read. He has lectured extensively and taught courses at Northeastern University and the University of Massachusetts. Bill holds a B.S. in Electrical Engineering from Northeastern University and an M.S. in Electric Power Engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.

Prior to joining Esri, Bill was the vice president of electric operations for a major electric and gas utility. Bill is a registered engineer in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. He currently co-leads the global electric utility solutions marketing practice at Esri, the world’s largest GIS Company.

Abstract
When we first hear the term GIS, we often think of maps. Certainly, maps are the foundation of GIS. However, it is far more. Rather the first word that comes to mind might well be discovery - discover what we have done (for good or bad). It reveals the patterns of our actions. Most importantly it provides a roadmap to a better world. This presentation examines digital transformation and the role of GIS. As we attempt to attack the serious problems of our times – aging infrastructure, climate change, poverty, pollution, inequity, we need to think differently. We must move from an incremental approach to one of innovation. GIS or location technology provides a common framework for looking at every aspect of our world – since nearly everything exists somewhere. GIS is about capturing information, understanding it then sharing it broadly. Thinking differently about GIS will help us map the way to a more sustainable world.

Early System V&V Using SysML Simulation

Presenter: Saulius (Saul) Pavalkis, PhD

Biography

CATIA NO MAGIC - CYBER SYSTEMS Industry Business Senior Consultant and MBSE Transformation Leader.

18 years at Dassault Systems (No Magic) in model based solutions and core R&D team. Currently working as MBSE Transformation Leader. Expert in systems modeling, simulation, MBSE ecosystem, interfaces and integrations, traceability, queries.

INCOSE CSEP, OMG OCSMP, No Magic lifetime modeling and simulation excellence award.

Community author for largest SysML simulation channel (youtube.com/c/MBSEExecution) and MBSE success cases blog (blog.nomagic.com).

Author of multiple papers on MBSE at INCOSE and NDIA. In 2020 got NAVAIR $20M budget for V&V paper implementation.

Representative at INCOSE CAB. Supporting MBSE adoption in A&D, T&M and other domains. Major clients: P&W, Boeing, NASA, BAE Systems, Raytheon Technologies, NGC, FORD.

Abstract
The talk will discuss recent trends in system model execution with SysML to perform early validation, and later architecture and design verification in large and small projects, with demonstration of system simulation, automated requirements verification, test cases specification and automated execution. Saul’s demonstration will feature the Cameo Simulation Toolkit out-of-the-box model execution and analysis capability using integrated evaluation engines and standards, in the context of a satellite model.

NASA perspective on recent trends in executable models: “This is an important development since it requires minimal configuration, can be used earlier in the lifecycle and can evolve as the design matures.”
