Survey invitation: Interactive modelling interfaces for model-based systems engineering

G-SCOP UMR CNRS research lab of the University of Grenoble Alpes

You are invited to take part in research taking place at the G-SCOP UMR CNRS research lab. It is a project funded by the French National Research Agency, conducting research on interactive modelling interfaces for model-based systems engineering invites you to contribute to a 15-minute online survey:

What is the aim of this research?

A system architecture is an abstract description of the entities of a system and the relationship between those entities. This research concentrates on the systematic and formalized application of modelling to support Systems Engineering, which is becoming the de facto approach to define the architecture of engineered systems. Architecture definition for engineered systems relies on conceptual modelling languages, which are claimed to be domain-independent and, consequently, convenient to support the cross-functional activities of system architecture. However, studies point out the lack of acceptance of very abstract symbolic and highly codified diagrammatic Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) representations because of the difference in abstraction with user’s mental models and the difficulty of integrating notational non-experts in the engineering design activities.

The goal of this survey is to evaluate the influence of iconic or symbolic and 2D or 3D representations on the quality of Model-Based System Engineering (MBSE) visual notations for the definition of a system architecture. 


Where will the results of the research study be published?

The results will be published in the PhD manuscript of Haobo Wang and a research paper. Both will be available on the University Grenoble Alpes open-access research repository, PerSCiDO. It is also possible to have the results published in open access on the project page.
