MBSE Helps NASA Up Its Game

Posted by Novel Engineering on December 27, 2016

The bane of any Project Manager’s existence is miscommunication. When various teams within a project are all using different terminology and different methods for recording and storing information, it creates fertile ground for confusion, delays and added costs. Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) is a powerful methodology designed to solve these problems and offers solutions that project managers and systems engineers in organizations like NASA are using to ensure smooth communication, reduce costs, and stay on schedule. Read on to learn how MBSE helps NASA up its game.
