This Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) course and the Digital Thread courses featured earlier in this specialization bring together the concepts from across digital manufacturing and design, 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.
Students will 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.
Students will be able to explain the value and expectations of systems engineering and model-based systems engineering, and the underlying motivations and opportunities represented by a model-based enterprise. They will develop the knowledge necessary to perform a baseline assessment of an organization’s potential to leverage MBSE.
Main concepts of this course will be delivered through lectures, readings, discussions and various videos.
This is the ninth course in the Digital Manufacturing & Design Technology specialization that explores the many facets of manufacturing’s “Fourth Revolution,” and features a culminating project involving creation of a roadmap to achieve a self-established DMD-related professional goal.
Course 9 of 10 in the Digital Manufacturing & Design Technology Specialization.
Who is this class for: This course is for 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.
