The Australian Systems Engineering Workshop, featuring the 3rd Model-Based Systems Engineering Symposium, was held in Mawson Lakes, South Australia between 11 and 13 November 2013.

Our Chief Executive Officer, Shaun Wilson, welcomed participants to the workshop as President-Elect of the host organisation, the Systems Engineering Society of Australia which is the Australian Chapter of the International Council on Systems Engineering. Aerospace Concepts was heavily involved in many aspects of the program reflecting the company’s world-leading Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) capabilities. We presented a range of MBSE-related client work and research:

  • ‘Model-Based Capability in Fire and Emergency Services’ by Daniel Spencer.
  • ‘The Challenge of Review in a Model-Based World’ by Michael Waite.
  • ‘Model-Based Systems Engineering for Capability Enhancement of Systems-of-Systems’ by Dr Nicola Broderick (DSTO), Michael Waite and Dr Matt Tetlow.

Additionally, Alan Smeaton, one of Aerospace Concepts’ Military Subject Matter Advisers, presented ‘Modelling an Expeditionary Airbase Capability System’along with Stephen Passmore from DSTO. Our colleagues from the University of South Australia, Dr Quoc Do and Prof Stephen Cook, presented ‘A Study of a Model-Centric Practice Across the Acquisition Boundary’.

The INCOSE Model-Based Conceptual Design Working Group meeting was held on the final day of the ASEW, Chaired by Kevin Robinson (DSTO) and co-chaired by Michael Waite (Aerospace Concepts), and Quoc Do (Uni SA).
