Object Oriented Systems Engineering Method (OOSEM) Training

Systems Strategies & Analysis (SSA) in Collaboration with Sanford Friedenthal is pleased to offer a self-paced video course for learning OOSEM a Model-Based System Engineering (MBSE) method. This Course can be taken by anyone who is interested in MBSE from beginners to advanced users to those who are just curious about OOSEM. The courses are offered in self-paced, online formats.

About Sanford Friedenthal

Sanford Friedenthal is an industry leader and independent consultant in model-based systems engineering (MBSE). He was formerly a Technical Fellow at Lockheed Martin, where he led the effort to enable Model- Based Systems Development (MBSD) and other advanced practices across the company. His experience includes the application of systems engineering throughout the system lifecycle from conceptual design, through development and production on a broad range of systems in aerospace and defense. Mr. Friedenthal has been a leader of the industry standards effort through the Object Management Group (OMG) and INCOSE to develop the Systems Modeling Language (OMG SysML ®) that was adopted by the OMG in 2006. He is now co-leading the effort to develop the next generation of SysML (v2). He is co-author of ‘A Practical Guide to SysML’ and ‘Architecting Spacecraft with SysML’. He also led the effort to develop the Systems Engineering Vision 2035 for INCOSE.

OOSEM is a model based systems engineering method that supports the system specification and design process

  • Flow down of requirements, structure, behavior, and parametrics
  • Provides a way to deal with system design and development complexity using separation of concerns as a fundamental tenet.
    • Black box, white box
    • Logical, physical
    • Distribution
    • Operational system, Enabling systems

Course Content

The course is divided into 13 Modules
  • Module 1 – OOSEM Overview
  • Method
    • Module 2 – Setup Model
    • Module 3 – Analyze Stakeholder Needs
    • Module 4 – Analyze system Requirements
    • Module 5- Define Logical Architecture
