Model-Based Systems Engineering

Maturity Benchmark Survey

This survey is intended to assess the value and effectiveness of MBSE adoption for improving business outcomes. It is also intended to develop a profile of current MBSE use and expectations across the systems engineering life cycle.

WHO IS RUNNING THE SURVEY?

The survey is a joint effort of the International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE) and the National Defense Industrial Association (NDIA) Systems Engineering Division. The survey is supported by researchers at the Systems Engineering Research Center (SERC).

WHO SHOULD PARTICIPATE?

Individuals who are currently working on MBSE implementation in their organization and who have some knowledge of their organization’s enterprise-level capabilities.

WHY SHOULD I PARTICIPATE?

The survey will provide a baseline assessment of the maturity of MBSE capabilities in your organization, based on the soon to be released INCOSE Model-Based Capabilities Matrix. Upon completion of the survey, you will be given an opportunity to download your survey responses as well as copies of the current Capabilities Matrix and Matrix User's Guide. These will not be published by INCOSE until 2020.

In addition to getting these results, overall results will provide critical insights into the progress of MBSE activities in the broader systems engineering community. A final report on the results will provide context for your organization and broad insights to support continuing MBSE maturity in the community.

HOW LONG IS THE SURVEY?

The survey is intended to be comprehensive and capture critical thoughts from practitioners. It will take about 25 minutes.

Respondents can complete a portion of a survey and return later to finish the rest. The incomplete survey will be shown on their dashboard.

HOW WILL MY DATA BE USED?

Data from the survey will be stored by the SERC. The final anonymized dataset (no individually or organizationally identifying information) will be stored by the SERC. The SERC will analyze the data and this aggregated analysis will be provided to INCOSE and NDIA. In addition, a report on the results of the survey will be published by the professional organizations.

HOW WILL MY DATA BE PROTECTED?

Protecting your data is important to SERC. We do not share your data with third parties. We follow generally accepted standards to protect the data submitted to us, both during transmission and once it is received. Most common attacks such as XSS, SQL injection, and CSRF will be detected and handled. Your data will be stored in a private database that can only be accessed by authorized SERC researchers.
