Model-based Systems Engineering - Challenges and Benefits

by Dr. Jan Meyer (Hella KGaA Hueck & Co.)



The complexity of systems (system of systems) is increasing, which is evident in the automotive domain as well. The document-based approach which was often used for systems engineering is reaching its limit and new approaches are necessary. Model-based systems engineering is increasingly used in development processes to meet this challenge. This talk presents the necessary changes and the possibilities which can be achieved with the model-based approach by means of an automotive Electronic Control Unit (ECU) example, using the Systems Modeling Language (SysML). Furthermore, it will explain why a consistent and complete model is the basis for systems engineering and how automatic model checks can support this approach.

Dr. Jan Meyer worked as a researcher from 2006 to 2011 at the Software Quality Lab (s-lab) of the University of Paderborn. He worked with different industrial cooperation partners on various research projects in the field of model-based and distributed systems and software engineering, especially in the automotive domain. Since 2011, he is working at HELLA KGaA Hueck & Co. in the Processes, Methods, and Tools Department (PMT). He is responsible for model-based system and software architecture using the modeling languages SysML, UML, and AUTOSAR, and also for real-time simulation.
