Undergraduate SE Senior Design and Research Projects

1:30 – 5:00    MBSE and Safety Analysis Workshop: Dr. Bruce Powel Douglass

This workshop focuses on the use of safety analysis in the context of model-based systems engineering to identify and quantify the safety concerns of systems development. A short introduction to basic safety concepts is followed by a more length introduction for Fault Tree Analysis (FTA) with examples of its use. A simple 6-step workflow is introduced for the development of a system safety analysis. Additional topics include cut set analysis, determining safety integrity level, and calculation of hazard likelihood. The workshop is approximately 2 hours of lecture interspersed with approximately 90 minutes of hands on exercises. Attendees are encouraged to bring their laptop and MBSE modeling tools to create models. Rhapsody users can download the free Dependability Profile from the author’s website Prerequisites: knowledge of SE and MBSE practices and any MBSE tool. For those interested in integrating safety design and assessments in systems models. 3 PDUs offered for ASEP, CSEP, ESEP certification.

8:30 – 9:00    Check-In and Continental Breakfast
9:00 – 4:30    Workshop A:  Systems Simulation and Analysis with SysML and Cameo Simulation Toolkit, Safety and Reliability Analyzer Plug-In. Dr. Saulius Pavalkis, No Magic

This tutorial provides a foundation on how to create precise models that can be executed using Cameo Simulation Toolkit plugin. The tutorial is very practical – it is driven by a sequence of hands-on assignments based on an educational case study model, which explains a composite system structural semantics and demonstrates how to build behavioral models (state machines, activities) and execute them. Attendees will also learn how executing models can help to better understand and communicate models, debug complex behavioral models, create functional system prototypes, verify requirements, and perform various kinds of engineering analysis. This tutorial is well balanced covering major capabilities enabling participants to execute models for any system in the future. Cameo Systems Modeler will be installed on laboratory computers in the classroom. Prerequisites: knowledge of SE and MBSE practices and experience using Cameo Systems Modeler tool. 6 PDUs offered for ASEP, CSEP, ESEP certification.

9:00 – 4:30    Workshop B: Introduction to SysML and Cameo Systems Modeler. Randy Skelding, Pratt & Whitney
This tutorial provides an overview of basic SysML diagramming concepts, highlighting notation and mechanics of modeling techniques. An introduction to modeling systems in Cameo Systems Modeler is provided with an example for a simple system – a diver’s flashlight. This course is great for beginners who have knowledge of systems engineering principles and practices, but want to learn how to implement them using the Cameo Systems Modeler MBSE tool and the SysML modeling language. 6 PDUs offered for ASEP, CSEP, ESEP certification.
