These Consulting Services focus on assisting Clients achieve their Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) project goals:
  • Architecture, analysis and design. Includes facilitating MBSE skills and best practices for precisely specifying scalable and secure System-of-Systems (SoS) architectures.
  • Business process modeling. Includes facilitating business process modeling skills and best practices, reviewing models and specifications, answering questions, and suggesting alternative solutions.
  • MBSE standards selection and implementation. Agile Modeling standards supported include language standards (UML, SysML, BPMN), interoperability standards (XMI, MOF), and enterprise architecture framework standards (DoDAF/MODAF/DNDF/NAF, UPDM, TOGAF).
  • MBSE process selection and customization. Includes adapting Agile Modeling processes to meet Agile development process team and project needs. Agile development processes supported include Scrum and Extreme Programming (XP); others on request. Agile Modeling processes can also be adapted to support Agile variants of Model-Based Engineering processes, such as Unified Process and Harmony/SE.
  • MBSE modeling tool selection and customization. Visual modeling tools that comply with the relevant Agile Modeling standards are supported (Sparx Enterprise Architect, MagicDraw, UModel, others on request).
  • Project planning and team building. Includes adapting your project planning process to incorporate an iterative, incremental Agile Modeling process.

These Consulting Services focus on evaluating your team's current Model-Based technology needs, and planning for their future needs. Goals include increased alignment of technology and business goals, and improvements in team efficiency and product quality. The major areas of model-based technology assessed include: model-based language usage (e.g., UML2, SysML, BPMN), model-based tool usage (all standard compliant modeling tools), model-based architecture frameworks usage (e.g., DoDAF/MODAF, UPDM, TOGAF), and model-based process applications for both Agile (small-team) and Rigorous (large-team) processes.

Technology assessment activities include, but are not limited to, the following: review of all current model-based technologies being applied, including representative work artifacts; review of all model-based technology plans; interviews with key technical leads and managers; capture of outstanding technology and team issues; and generation of recommendations to improve your team's usage of model-based technologies.

Strategic planning services include, but are not limited to, the following: market assessment, SWOT analysis, vision development, strategy development, action planning, and execution mentoring.
