Digital Engineering Using MBSE to Develop System Architecture Model

27 May 2024

Apply Now: NASA Application

Deadline: 5/31/2024

The Agency and NASA Goddard Space Flight Center are involved in many efforts which utilize model-based systems engineering (MBSE) and Digital Engineering(DE). This has created opportunities for systems, software, mechanical and aerospace engineers with SysML experience to contribute their skills to these efforts. Specifically, under the direction of the GSFC Astrophysics Line of Business, we have developed a system architecture model (SAM), framework, methods and toolkits over the last couple of years. We have predominantly used MagicDraw(MD) and MD API python to develop SAM. Primary objectives of SAM are to enable System Engineers to capture system information by leveraging digital-threads and produce/deliver design artifacts using SAM. The selected intern will work on different aspects of SAM development utilizing MagicDraw and python.

Tasks include:

• Capturing Mission Concept of Operations using behavioral model aspect of SAM.
• Managing observatory power modes using SAM.
• Creating the framework on how to create Verification and Validation Models for NASA GOLD Rules and GEVS requirements
• Generating System engineering document from SAM using python scripts
• Producing and maintaining training materials
• Report weekly progress to SE Lead
• Present contributions at end of internship to systems engineering

Knowledge of python is required. Individuals with systems engineering backgrounds and/or knowledge of SysML are preferred. Strongly motivated to learn knowledge gaps and the ability to use collaboration tools like Microsoft Teams and Office 365 is desired.

An understanding of general principles of science, research, and engineering is needed to effectively communicate with researchers and engineers working on MBSE.

Minimum education: undergraduate seniors in systems, computer, science, math or engineering degree program.

Excellent writing skills and presentation are needed. Ability to work independently, be organized, and respond rapidly to requests.
