Topic - Modeling of Complex Systems Through in SysML In Italian Navy (ITN)
Abstract – In the last two years 2014 - 2015 the General Staff of the Italian Navy has been engaged in the definition of a modernization of
the fleet, which led to the acquisition process of new ITN Ships. During the design development phases, that has led to the definition of the ship/system architecture and user requirements system acquisition, the “traditional” design methodology (based, as usual, on a paper-based approach), has been efficiently supported by a more innovative methodology,
based on “model-based” concepts, derived by Systems’ Engineering culture. This talk aims at disseminating the experience in designing complex systems through SysML In Italian Navy by presenting the Design of the Sensor Management Subsystem of a Combat System of new Multi-purpose patrol High Seas (PPA).
L’intervento sarà arricchito da una dimostrazione del modeling applicato a sistemi
di combattimento eseguita dal C.C. (AN) Nicola Cariello, MARISTAT.

Topic - A new approach to master complexity in model driven Systems Engineering
Abstract - Companies in the Engineer-To-Order (ETO) business are facing various challenges. The competitive pressure is rising, new competitors are emerging, and customers call for higher flexibility and global presence of ETO companies. Engineering is a core activity of the ETO business, defining 50-60% of the total life-cycle cost of the produced solutions, yet causing just 5-15% of the internal delivery costs, engineering is the starting point to tackle complexity.
The talk focuses on discussing an internal initative of Siemens called “Integrated Systems Development”, in which proven systems engineering approaches and new practices are merged to master complexity in ETO and large development projects.

Topic - There’s more than one way to skin a framework
Abstract - Today's architecture modeling environment suffers from being an effort to satisfy milestone decisions. Typically, the architecture effort is separated from the Systems Engineering (SE) leading to a lack of traceability from the systems requirements to the architecture resulting in interoperable systems. Due to the way that the Architecture models are created they generally consist of static diagrams and provide limited analytical support to the decision maker.
Applying the Unified Architecture Framework (UAF), previously known as Unified profile for MODAF and DoDAF (UPDM), using a Model-based Systems Engineering (MBSE) approach moves the architecture modeling effort to one that is an integral part of SE, helping the systems integrator to develop interoperable systems, with traceability to requirements and across views, using one integrated architecture model that enables impact analysis, gap analysis, trade studies, simulations (what-if scenarios), and engineering analysis.
This presentation introduces to the brand new UAF and explores how to leverage MBSE with architecture modeling in an integrated and disciplined approach, enabling the modernization of complex systems (Systems of Systems, C4I systems and heavy industry systems).

Topic - Critical Skills of the Future Systems Engineer
Abstract – INCOSE’s document, Systems Engineering Vision w 2025, highlights the environmental and sociotechnical challenges we systems engineers must deal with in the 21st century. Mr. Thomas will review those challenges with the audience.
Share his perspective on systems trends of the future. And lastly, outline professional development strategies that educators can adopt, and system engineers and follow, to ensure our SE profession delivers maximum value to the organizations it serves.
