To the right is a generic model for approaching issues encountered in an operating manufacturing facility. This model is not all inclusive but the beauty of MBSE is that the model is never locked, and this skeleton can have features added or deleted to suit the current subjects being improved. For example, Operations includes the topic of “control logic”. For many applications, this would involve a human intervention, however, networks of sensors/ instruments and programmed logic are very prevalent. This branch can be expanded several levels to incorporate the relevant aspects that suit the problem being solved.
