Modeling & Simulation in the Systems Engineering Process
$1390 per person
This two-day short course, based on two semester-long graduate-level systems engineering courses, provides an overview of the use of modeling and simulation (M&S) in the systems engineering process. After an introduction of key M&S terms and processes, the course presents an overview of the types of models and simulations used across the phases of the systems engineering life cycle, from system needs analysis through system sustainment. Examples are given for several types of systems, including systems developed under the U.S. Department of Defense acquisition process. The course then provides information on advanced M&S topics useful in systems engineering, including markup and modeling languages, interoperable and live-virtual-constructive (LVC) simulation, collaborative simulation environments, M&S asset repositories, and modeling the natural and man-made environments
James E. Coolahan, Ph.D., retired from full-time employment at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (JHU/APL) after 40 years of service. He chaired the M&S Committee of the SYstems Engineering Division of the National Defense Industrial Association for seven years, and teaches courses in M&S for Systems Engineering in the JHU Engineering for Professionals M.S. program. He holds B.S. and M.S. degrees in aerospace engineering from the University of Notre Dame and the Catholic University of America, and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in computer science from JHU and the University of Maryland.
