Model based systems engineering is extremely useful for solving complex multi domain problems. It has been used in discrete manufacturing for some time and is now coming to process industries and projects. Specifically, it involves a formalised application of modelling to support system requirements, design, analysis, verification and validation activities, beginning in concept and continuing through the life cycle. With the aim of improving project performance, for example, faster delivery and higher quality for lower cost.
