Configuration Management in MBSE

June 17, 2020 – 15:00

Model-driven Systems Engineering (MBSE) is no longer an experimental method today, but has established itself as an accepted standard for covering traceability requirements as well as for describing architecture and design. During a product development cycle the different models go through various iterations of changes and releases. Apart from baselining and variant management, configuration management enables product releases, analyses of design as well as further development happening all at the same time with different configurations. For these purposes, the advantages of versioning systems have been successfully used for decades in the development of the source code.

In general, standards such as IEC 61508 demand the application of configuration management. This refers to all artifacts, including UML models.

Thus, our goal was to reuse these established configuration management processes from software development for all artifacts – also for models. This includes the possibility to work in distributed teams of engineers across organizational boarders by using “base-lining” or “branching”.
In this webinar, we will present requirements and challenges for the modeling tools regarding configuration management and show best practices in the automotive domain.

In this Webinar you will get answers to the following questions:

  • Why is configuration management so important in MBSE?
  • Why do safety projects need strict versioning of models?
  • Why agile development in MBSE relies on proper change management?
  • What is state-of-the-art in versioning of models?
  • What are the best practices here?

We would like to invite you to this exciting webinar!
Stay healthy!
