We seek contributions that capture lessons learned from practical applications of MBSE in space mission design and development:

ID Specific workshop objectives at operational level
O-1  Successful applications with emphasis on reporting perceived return-on-investment
O-2 Limitations of current MBSE approaches and ways to circumvent or resolve these (e.g. through customization of processes and tools)
O-3 Sustaining MBSE after first adoption (e.g. long term maintenance and model evolution, application / re-use in the next project, identified non-technical and governance aspects [see also tactical and strategic level])
O-4 Leveraging MBSE results to improve the definition and development of other downstream applications and use cases (e.g. simulation, validation and verification, operations)

Experience reports on sharing models and data (“doing MBSE together”)

  • Across projects
  • Across engineering domains
  • Across life-cycle phases
  • With customers
  • With suppliers

Furthermore, we seek contributions that discuss the organizational implementation of the digitalization of engineering processes:

ID Specific workshop objectives at tactical level
T-1 Discuss enablers and hurdles to introduce MBSE in industrial practice also considering non-technical aspects (e.g. change and engineering management, organizational embedding, infrastructure and security, workforce training/evolution)
T-2 Discuss the next “big challenge” to address to improve digital continuity; what is needed to achieve a truly end-to-end digital workflow
T-3 Showcase novel approaches to MBSE that have the potential to significantly improve the state-of-practice in space mission design and development; both innovative approaches from industry and academia are welcomed, but with a clear focus on application potential at scale
T-4 Discuss the role of existing, evolving and emerging standards to address interoperability and semantic modelling to support digital continuity

Last but not least, we intend to address business goals and identify conditions needed to achieve success:

ID Specific workshop objectives at strategic level
S-1 The vision for (model based) systems and software engineering in the next decade; opportunities and challenges, risks and rewards
S-2 Current and future R&D programmes with focus on MBSE, digital spacecraft, big data, machine learning and artificial intelligence
S-3 Collaboration in an international, competitive and heterogeneous market place (e.g. evolution and adoption of standards and tools, legal and contractual aspects, data governance)
S-4 Lessons learned from other application domains dealing with complex system design (e.g. aeronautics, automotive, railway etc.) with focus on potential of knowledge transfer to the space domain
