About

2022 Design Sciences Series Workshop, 7-8 Nov. 2022 :

Maritime Institute of Technology and Graduate Studies (MITAGS);
692 Maritime Blvd, Linthicum Heights, MD. 21090.

Theme: Digital Engineering – Model Based Engineering

The ASNE Design Sciences Series of workshops and conferences explore the emerging science of design methods, processes and tools for the successful design of naval engineering projects. Naval ships and systems are increasingly becoming cyber-physical systems as part of a broader trend commonly called the fourth industrial revolution (or Industry 4.0).

The digital engineering of these cyber-physical systems cannot be executed without a digital thread enabled model-based environment which goes well beyond the use of today’s design tools and methods. The complexity of this change demands that product development move away from document-centric practices and rely more on digital model-based processes that encompass all aspects of the engineering activity and the engineered product. With increased systems complexity, product engineering teams now face new challenges characterizing system-level behaviors that cross many knowledge domains.

From automation of traditional practices to large scale machine-to-machine communication, digital products are increasing dependent on a shared representation of data. The requirement for shared data results in the development of a shared ontology. Ontologies are necessary for both machine to machine integration but also for the engineering activity that must agree on an unambiguous product definition and multi-domain characterization to set requirements against and to ensure data quality.

This ontology is typically designed and deployed using descriptive or general modeling languages that include, but are not limited to, the Unified Modeling Language (UML), Systems Modeling Language (SysML), EXPRESS-G, and IDEF.

In the engineering of naval ship products, these modeling languages are increasing being used to define the process of design, the products themselves, and the integration of both into what can be called Model Based Engineering. Model Based Engineering includes Model Based Systems Engineering, Ontology Engineering, Model-Driven Development, Business Process Modeling, and their integration. Human system centric activities like contracting, systems architecting, systems engineering, and product design must be integrated with machine centric data communications needed for software products communicating a shared engineering product.

This workshop will address the use of Model Based Engineering to enable a digital transformation across the product lifecycle of naval engineering projects.
