At its core, model-based systems engineering (MBSE) seeks to inform decision-making. When applied to critical specialty engineering disciplines, MBSE can have a significant impact on the design, development, implementation and ongoing management of the system.

MBSE for Reliability 


MBSE can be used to develop a comprehensive understanding of a system’s reliability and identify potential issues that could impact its performance. Model-based reliability engineering enables engineers to make informed design decisions and ensure the system remains reliable over its lifetime. 

Develop a Reliability Model

MBSE provides a clear and concise way to communicate. It avoids misinterpretation and misunderstandings stemming from different terminologies and lexicons.

Maintenance Planning

MBSE can also be used to plan for maintenance activities. By modeling the system and its components, MBSE is used to predict maintenance requirements and develop a maintenance schedule that ensures the system remains reliable over its lifetime.

Assess Design Trade-offs

MBSE facilitates design trade-offs to optimize the system's reliability. For example, MBSE can be used to evaluate the impact of different design decisions on the system's reliability, such as the choice of materials, component size, or operating conditions.

Assess System Failure Modes

By using MBSE to model a system, the reliability of the system can be assessed by identifying failure modes and analyzing their effects on system performance.

Verification and Validation

MBSE can be used to verify and validate the system design to ensure that it meets reliability requirements. By simulating the system under different conditions, MBSE can be used to identify design weaknesses and validate the system's reliability.


MBSE can be used to design and model the architecture of a product line to help ensure that the product line is optimized for performance, scalability and reusability.


MBSE can be used to reuse product line artifacts, such as requirements, designs, and tests, across multiple products within the product line reducing development time and costs, as well as improving the consistency and quality of the products within the product line to reduce development time and costs, as well as improve the consistency and quality of the products.


MBSE can be used to manage the configuration of the product line, including the selection and combination of different features and components to ensure that the product line is flexible and adaptable to different customer needs.


MBSE can be used to verify and validate the products within the product line. This can be done by using model-based simulation, testing and analysis, which can be reused across different products within the product line.

MBSE for Product Line Engineering

MBSE provides a tailored framework for capturing system design information for a family of products. MBSE for product line engineering allows engineers to accurately design variants based on the common and variable parts of the architecture. 

MBSE for Cybersecurity Engineering

MBSE provides a powerful capability for cybersecurity engineering, enabling engineers and program managers to design, analyze and optimize the security of a system from the early stages of the design process through the entire system life cycle. 

Threat Modeling

MBSE is used to model potential threats and analyze threat impacts to a system. This analysis provides insight into identified vulnerabilities, how they might be exploited and opportunities for mitigation.

Cybersecurity “Baked In”

Cybersecurity is part of the system design from the beginning, incorporating and integrating security features via MBSE early on in the development cycle results in more effective cybersecurity controls.

Risk Analysis

MBSE is used to identify and model likelihood and severity of risks associated with a system. This analysis is used to prioritize security measures and allocate resources.


The MBSE system model can be stimulated with different threat scenarios to test the designed security of the system. This helps identify weaknesses and deploy a more secure system.

MBSE for Electrical Systems

MBSE provides the capability for robust electrical design within the same context as the system design model. MBSE for electrical design provides a framework for designing, simulating, analyzing, and managing complex electrical system


MBSE can be used to model and design complex electrical systems to ensure that the system is optimized for performance, reliability and cost-effectiveness.


MBSE tools can be used to simulate and analyze the behavior of electrical systems under different conditions to identify potential issues and optimize the design before building a physical prototype.

MBSE for Safety Engineering

MBSE facilitates safety engineering by capturing hazard identification, functional safety assessment and risk analysis within the context of the system design. Capturing this data in the MBSE model enables the refinement of the system design based on safety findings. 

Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment

MBSE models can be used to identify potential hazards, simulate the systems behavior under different operating conditions and analyze their associated risks

Safety Requirements Specification

MBSE models can be used to specify safety requirements for the system, enabling better management of requirements and ensuring that all safety requirements are met.

Safety Certification

MBSE models can be used to support safety assessment and certification processes to provide evidence that the system meets relevant safety and compliance standards and regulations.
