INCOSE 2013 MBSE Workshop – Usability Breakout Session


  • David Lempia – Moderator: Day 2 Libraries
  • Bjorn Cole – Day 2 Assertions Use Case
  • Ron Lyells – as available
  • Scott Workinger - Facilitator

Objectives of the MBSE-Usability Breakout Sessions:

Day 1:

  • Present the group's work product on Modeling Libraries from 2012
  • Get Feedback and encourage dialog and engagement about future usability work on modeling libraries.
  • Get contact information from interested individuals

Day 2:

  • Engage with people who are interested in specific projects, such as:
  • Guidance Document for developing and managing modeling libraries
  • The Use Case: Making Assertions (We will invite presentations on perspectives regarding the assertions use case in 2013, similar to the libraries usability presentations in 2013.)
  • Other (No limits here: What’s your idea?)…

Agenda for MBSE-Usability Breakout Sessions:


  • 15:30 - 17:00 Discussion of Recommendations in Paper: Emerging Usability Patterns in the Application of Modeling Libraries
  • 15:30 - 15:35 Introduction: - Scott Workinger
  • 15:40 - 15:55 Using a Library to Build a Fine-Grained Simulation Model - David Lempia
  • 15:55 - 16:10 Libraries and Domain-Specific Modeling - Bjorn Cole
  • 16:10 - 16:25 MBSE Libraries for Automotive Engineering - Judy Che
  • 16:25 - 16:40 Library Templates to Support Learning and Modeling Efficiency - George Sawyer (Scott Presenting, George attending via telephone.)
  • 16:40 - 16:55 Practical Application of a Geographically Dispersed Modeling and Simulation Environment - Ron Lyells
  • 16:55 - 17:00 Summary and Preview of Sunday's Breakout Session - Scott Workinger
  • 17:00 - 17:30 General Discussion (This part occurs after the regularly scheduled meetings end; however, we’re expecting it to be very interesting…)


  • 14:00 - 15:30 Planning for MBSE - Usability Efforts in 2013
  • 14:00 - 14:15 Opportunities for 2013: Outline & Discussion of the Opportunities, for instance:
    • Creating a Guidance Document for Establishing Modeling Libraries
    • Sharing Perspectives on Making Assertions About Designs [Here,we're looking for individuals to present a perspective, based upon their personal experience, similar to the presentations on Libraries in 2012 that led to the Libraries Paper]
    • Other?… [The attendees own the agenda. What people want to work on determines which way we go. The two items above will be strongly recommended. But other interests may emerge.]
  • 14:15 -15:15 Breakouts: (Each individual goes to his or her preferred breakout.)
    • Guidance Document for Modeling Libraries (At least one of us is of the opinion that this should be the chief focus of the group in 2013. That could be an outcome, if the group supports it.) – Leader: David Lempia
    • Making Assertions about Designs – Leader: Bjorn Cole
    • Other?… [What ever arises in the discussion above becomes the list of breakouts. Generally speaking, we probably want at least 5 people to a breakout but popular breakouts will probably attract more.] – Leader: Who wants to step forward?
  • 15:15 - 15:30 Outbrief of individual breakout groups so that we can assemble them into our report to the overall MBSE audience.
  • 15:30 - 15:45 We get 15 minutes to present the MBSE-U breakout results to the overall MBSE group.
