System Safety and Cybersecurity within the Model Based System Engineering (MBSE) System Model

by Justin Holmes; William Tecos; Stephen Graham; Bradley Beeson; Micah Speers


Model Based System Engineering (MBSE) offers the ability to connect an ever expanding set of disciplines through the system model into specialty areas, having a dramatic impact early and lasting throughout the system lifecycle. safety and cybersecurity are two such areas that are far too ofien “patched” into a system design versus properly integrated. MBSE and the use of a system model provides a methodology to integrate these areas early in the design process. Addressing system safety and cybersecurity concerns from the beginning stages of development will enforce adoption of principals and best practices throughout the life of the system.
