  • INCOSE-LA Tutorial Series

    Sat, Nov 18, 2017 @ 09:00 AM - 03:00 PM

    Systems Architecting and Engineering, USC Viterbi School of Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Dr. Mark L. McKelvin, Jr., Engineering Specialist in systems and software engineering, The Aerospace Corporation; and Adjunct Lecturer, USC System Architecting and Engineering Program

    Talk Title: Model Based Systems Engineering

    Series: INCOSE-LA Tutorial Series

    Abstract: Model based systems engineering (MBSE) formalizes the practice of systems engineering through the use of models. This tutorial introduces the fundamental principles of modeling and its application to system engineering. This tutorial is intended to give students a basic understanding of MBSE and its applications by describing what a system model is, how it is used to enable systems engineering in realworld applications, and the role of tools in MBSE. The tutorial format is a slide presentation with some class exercises.

    Cost: $25 for INCOSE members and $45 for others.
    Limited to 40 attendees. See the registration link below.

    Directions: The building is located on the east side of Aviation just north of El Segundo Blvd. The entry gate is just past Bimbos Bakery. There is plenty of parking assigned to the building. An Aerospace host will meet attendees at the front door to sign them into the building. For questions prior to the tutorial please contact Fatima Syed at 310-336-2401.

    Biography: Dr. Mark L. McKelvin, Jr. is an Engineering Specialist in systems and software engineering at The Aerospace Corporation. Dr. McKelvin specializes in the use of model based engineering techniques to develop solutions to architecture design challenges for cyberphysical and software intensive systems. He is also a Lecturer in the System Architecting and Engineering graduate program at the University of Southern California, Viterbi School of Engineering where he teaches courses in Model Based Systems Engineering and Systems Engineering Theory and Practice. Prior to joining the Aerospace Corporation, Dr. McKelvin worked at NASA/JPL as a software systems engineer, electrical systems engineer, and a lead fault protection engineer on a major flight system. His interests are in the application of modeling, analysis, and design of engineered systems, including cyber-physical, embedded, and software systems. He holds a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences from the University of California, Berkeley with an emphasis in Electronic Design Automation.
