This talk will discuss three important aspects of model-based system engineering in industrial applications. The first part will focus on modeling. By modeling, I refer to the process of composing a description of a systems behavior. This section will cover the advantages of modeling languages in the process, how different types of modeling fit into the system engineering V process and how choosing hybrid differential algebraic equations as the fundamental basis for behavioral descriptions has an important impact on the model developer's productivity. Next, the topic of simulation will be discussed with an emphasis on how the emerging FMI standard can provide a basis for "system integration" at the modeling level and how changes in computing resources are changing the way we approach simulation. Finally, the talk will conclude with a discussion about deployment of system simulation models to non-expert users. The goal of deployment is to emphasize the importance of accurate, high-quality, high-fidelity models to non-expert users thereby justifying the skills and resources required to produce such models.
