Systems Engineer IV - Model Based Systems Engineer (MBSE)
Posted on: September 9, 2020
Business Group HighlightsIntelligence
The Intelligence group provides high-end systems engineering and
integration products and services, data analytics and software
development to national and military intelligence customers.
Serving federal agencies and the Intelligence Community for more
than 50 years, the Intelligence group helps our clients meet their
mission needs by providing trusted advisors, leading-edge
technologies, and innovative solutions.ResponsibilitiesBe part of a
fast-paced, high energy, team as an early adopter and leader in the
digital transformation of systems engineering. To engineer
increasingly complex systems and capabilities, the government is
transforming legacy systems engineering methods and processes.
Central to the transformation is the adoption of Model Based
Systems Engineering (MBSE) as the means to manage complexity,
increase engineering quality, and ultimately drive cost and
schedule efficiencies into the acquisition process.
As an industry leader in systems engineering, Perspecta is actively
hiring MBSE modelers and subject matter experts to drive this
transformation across the government. Perspecta is seeking
candidates who can help lead the transformation through application
of MBSE industry best practices, develop MBSE processes and
methodologies to deliver effective mission solutions, and apply
MBSE experience to modeling mission systems.
Duties and Responsibilities:
- Responsible for participating in the adoption of MBSE in both
customer and company domains.
- Assess engineering artifacts and develop models of mission
systems using a MBSE tool suite that includes DOORS Next
Generation, Rhapsody and other COTS tools.
- Apply systems engineering modeling methodologies to develop
mission models. Demonstrated experience with UPDM or UAF meta-model
frameworks is desired.
- Define and demonstrate the appropriate data standards, data
structures, and supporting COTS, GOTS, and Open Source technologies
required to manage the data needs. These items are technical
resources in the development of customer mission-based models to
support major acquisitions.
- Integrate enterprise tools and develop MBSE-based processes to
support requirements engineering, the customer's ERB process,
CONOPS and architecture development, Risk, Issues and Opportunity
Management boards, schedule management, test and verification
strategy development, and system integration of new initiatives in
support of expanded mission capabilities.
- Facilitate collaborative meetings between the MBSE users and
the tool development team to communicate modeling needs and help
innovate potential solutions.
- Provides technical advice and guidance to senior managers
regarding the creation and implementation of new MBSE methods and
- Requires 8 to 10 years with BS/BA or 6 to 8 years with MS/MA or
3 to 5 years with PhD.
- Must have a current and active TS/SCI with Polygraph.
- BS in engineering, physics, programming or related technical
- Should understand how system requirements, design, analysis,
verification and validation activities are enabled by MBSE across
the digital thread (the engineering lifecycle). Foundational to
MBSE are tools, technologies, and methodologies that can
collectively be called digital engineering.
- The selected candidate should demonstrate experience with
industry MBSE tools and modeling methodologies to successfully
produce systems engineering models.
- Demonstrated knowledge and practical application of UML / SysML
modeling languages and experience applying this common structure to
an MBSE solution.
- Demonstrated proficiency in using a Rhapsody, MagicDraw or
other UML based Architecture modeling tools.
- Knowledge of standard DoDAF architectural frameworks to include
UPDM and/or UAF.
- Experience with systems engineering processes in support of
system life cycle development.
- Basic knowledge of architecture, requirements engineering,
CONOPS development, verification, test and system integration to
accommodate End to End Systems Engineering.
- Experience in MBSE implementation ranging from conceptual to
physical implementations; including Data Modeling, Data Ingest, and
- Demonstrated communication skills especially with tools
developers and senior government officials.
