Economical Modeling: Minimizing Effort, Maximizing Modeling Return on Investment (ROI)
System modeling is hard…and without proper guidance and oversight a system model can degenerate into a disjointed collection of artifacts. This discussion will explore lessons learned, overall modeling philosophy, and the culture change and approach for an organization to maximize the benefits from system modeling. It will challenge audience members to reconsider some of their assumptions about systems engineering, the value and role of modeling, and how to maximize the return on their investment of time, resources, and funding. It will also highlight the impact that modeling can have even when undertaken by first-time modelers.
