From the Publisher
What was your objective for writing this book?
I wrote this book to help readers identify the key practices for agile MBSE and to codify ways to perform them. Just throwing together diagrams and engineering information isn’t enough. The models must be engineered to have the right information, organized in the right way, with the optimal level of accuracy.
Simply put, my objective is to provide a set of workflows (recipes) to effectively implement the key practices that lead to the successful use of agile practices for systems engineering.
How can this book help me learn Agile MBSE?
This book focuses on how you can combine MBSE’s capabilities of capturing engineering data in ways that support inspection, simulation, testing, and quantitative analysis along with Agile methods to improve engineering efficiency for software development.
Effective recipes and best practices equip you to successfully use models to implement agile methods for systems engineering and ensure that the models are verifiable, that they’re computable and executable.

What makes the Agile Model-Based Systems Engineering Cookbook different from other books on systems engineering?
Most MBSE books focus more on the language than the process. That’s not particularly bad, as SysML is intentionally process-independent. However, successful MBSE projects use SysML within workflows to develop project work products. Books that do provide process guidance normally do not use agile approaches or either provide large-scale formal overarching processes that describe the entire set of all workflows for systems engineering, while not addressing the details of how to actually perform the individual workflows.
This book assumes a basic understanding of the SysML language but focuses on the core aspects of the MBSE process – individual workflows – meant to achieve smaller engineering objectives or produce specific engineering work products, in an agile way. The book marries the fundamental practices of agile methods with the outcomes and outputs of systems engineering and the practical use of models.
