This chapter provides a short overview of systems engineering approaches, activities, and goals and how model-based systems engineering (MBSE) can help achieve them. The chapter makes the distinction between systems and discipline-specific engineering disciplines and then identifies and describes the primary systems engineering activities and their resulting engineering data. Following this, the three primary workflow models (V-Model, Incremental Model, and Hybrid V-Model) are discussed as means for sequencing the system engineering activities.
