MBSE: Model-Based Systems Engineering

This Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) course and the Digital Thread: Components and Digital Thread: Implementation courses bring together the concepts from across digital manufacturing and design (DM&D), forming a vision in which the geometry of a product is just one way of describing it. MBSE is where the model resulting from the evolution of system requirements, design, analysis, verification and validation activities is the focus of design and manufacturing. Through this course, participants gain an understanding of systems engineering, the model-based approach to design and manufacturing, the Digital Twin, and a roadmap toward a model-based enterprise. This is the eighth of nine courses in the Digital Manufacturing & Design Technology series that explores the many facets of manufacturing’s “Fourth Revolution,” commonly known as Industry 4.0.

This online course is available on the Coursera platform.

Course Duration: Approximately 4 weeks (2.5-5 hours of effort per week)

Learning Outcomes

  • Perform a baseline assessment of an organization’s potential to leverage MBSE

Intended Audience

Anyone interested in how digital advances are changing the landscape and capabilities of manufacturing, from high school graduates exploring careers to operations managers and business owners hungry for an understanding of the newest manufacturing technologies

Prerequisites

None

Credential Opportunities

  • Continuing Education Units (CEUs): TCIE grants 0.2 CEUs upon successful completion of this course for a fee of $25.
  • Professional Development Hours (PDHs): TCIE grants 2 PDHs upon successful completion of this course for a fee of $25.   

For either a CEU or PDH, a learner must complete a request form. The process entails providing proof of the learner’s Verified Certificate (VC) issued by Coursera.
