Benchmarking Metrics, Benefits and Current Maturity of Model-Based Systems Engineering across the Enterprise
In 2019-2020, the National Defense Industrial Association Systems Engineering Division (NDIA-SED) and the International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE) collaborated with the Systems Engineering Research Center (SERC) at the Stevens Institute of Technology to benchmark the current state of Digital Engineering (DE) and Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) across government, industry, and academia. The team developed and executed a survey of the systems engineering community to broadly assess the maturity of system engineering’s “digital transformation,” identify specific benefits of MBSE and associated metrics, identify enablers and obstacles to DE and MBSE adoption across the enterprise, and understand evolving and necessary shifts in the systems engineering (SE) workforce. The survey results have now been used to publish a research report on Digital Engineering Metrics.
UPDATE: The summary and full DE Metrics reports have been added to this page.
The SERC-2020-SR-003 Summary Report on Digital Engineering Metrics focuses in on how organizations can categorize and measure Digital Engineering change. This report was developed from the survey data and additional research on enterprise change measurement. The SERC-2020-TR-002 Digital Engineering Metrics full research report includes all of the background research completed in support of the survey data analysis and the metrics recommendations.
The SERC-2020-SR-001 report: “Benchmarking the Benefits and Current Maturity of Model-Based Systems Engineering across the Enterprise,” indexes the findings drawn from the MBSE Maturity Survey. The survey itself was released by the Systems Engineering Research Center, INCOSE and NDIA during late 2019, and closed on February 1, 2020. Thank you again to all participants.
