IOF Systems Engineering Working Group

Get Involved

Overview and Purpose

The Systems engineering WG is motivated by use cases including the systems engineering, system architecture, system lifecycle and model-based systems engineering. The WG is exploring the use of systems engineering domain ontologies built to adhere to a common upper ontology can enable reasoning across industrial domains during the entire system lifecycle.

The initial set of notions considered by the WG includes the following.

  • System lifecycle, phases and workflow
  • Systems engineering items, architecture and system life cycle properties, such as flexibility and evolvability.
  • Systems engineering standards
  • MBSE languages, methodologies and models
  • Model integration and model interoperability using ontologies
