Towards a Body of Knowledge for Model-Based Software Engineering

Abstract : Model-based Software Engineering (MBSE) is now accepted as a Software Engineering (SE) discipline and is being taught as part of more general SE curricula. However, an agreed core of concepts, mechanisms and practices-which constitutes the Body of Knowledge of a discipline-has not been captured anywhere, and is only partially covered by the SE Body of Knowledge (SWEBOK). With the goals of characterizing the contents of the MBSE discipline, promoting a consistent view of it worldwide, clarifying its scope with regard to other SE disciplines, and defining a foundation for a curriculum development on MBSE, this paper provides a proposal for an extension of the contents of SWEBOK with the set of fundamental concepts, terms and mechanisms that should constitute the MBSE Body of Knowledge. CCS CONCEPTS • Social and professional topics → Software engineering education ; Model curricula; KEYWORDS Model-Based Software Engineering, Body of Knowledge.
