Software engineering and technology (MPSOF), MSc
Background: Model Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) is widely used in large scale projects within the embedded systems domain with benefits being shared understanding and improved communication. The transition to MBSE is however not as easy as a flip of the switch. A common and major challenge is effective adoption among developers. Aim: The goal of this thesis is to create a framework which provides recommendations for how to introduce MBSE by finding and addressing areas of particular concern for system engineering companies. Method: In order to accomplish the goal, and answer the research questions, a literature review and a case study were conducted. The literature review consisted of two parts, a systematic literature review, and an additional literature review with a broader scope. The case study consisting of eleven interviews at two different Saab AB locations that have introduced an MBSE approach. The literature review and case study were then synthesized in order to achieve the goal. Results: A framework was created by synthesizing the literature review and case study. The framework provides recommendations for introducing MBSE into projects. The framework is also presented on a timeline, helping practitioners practically apply the recommendations. Conclusions: The created framework reduces risks discovered during the literature review and case study. A limitation of the framework is that it has not been assessed in an industrial project. It should in the future be tested in a real setting.
