How mature is MBSE in your company?
Many companies try to manage the increasing complexity of their products by using model-based systems engineering (MBSE). However, introducing MBSE is a challenge that should not be done in one step. Process improvement frameworks, like CMMI, are of little help as they are too generic and often also too "heavyweight".
We present a maturity model that is specifically tailored to the introduction of MBSE. The model defines a set of capabilities. These capabilities address context, requirements, functional and system modeling, as well as integration and testing. The model is used to assess where a company stands in the introduction of MBSE and in which areas it is worthwhile to advance MBSE. The model considers the goals and circumstances of the company.
