Case study of the Rational Harmony systems engineering process, Part 1
By Mohit Choudhary (email@example.com), Systems Engineer, RealTime TechSolutions
Model-based systems engineering (MBSE) captures system requirements plus the design decisions that fulfill them. It can help validate cost, performance studies, or design choices. This is a case study of IBM Rational Harmony for Systems Engineers, an MBSE method that translates functional requirements into a description of system operations.
