General document | Proceedings of the 2012 Model-Based Systems Engineering Symposium, 27 - 28 November 2012, DSTO Edinburgh, South Australia


"...the future of systems engineering can be said to be model-based" according to the International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE) vision for 2020. Within Australia, Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) is emerging on a greater number of projects and across a broader range of organisations.

The 2012 MBSE Symposium explored the innovative application of MBSE methodologies to Concept Engineering. Concept Engineering can be described as the application of systems engineering principles, processes, methods, techniques and tools to the identification and analysis of the needs of capability users and other stakeholders.

The symposium included two keynote presentations and fifteen presentations from DSTO, industry and academia. It also included two workshop sessions that explored the use of capability system models as part of the contracting process.
