Elaborate on how the SOI fits into the CreationeeringTM paradigm and a biblical worldview. -How does this SOI show evidence of something God created (i.e., biomimicry)? How could this SOI be used in a ministry application? What Scripture passages relate to this SOI or this stage of the project?

Civil Engineering

Reverse Engineering Project: Part 4 – System Analysis Assignment Instructions

Overview

In the Reverse Engineering Project, you will acquire a commercially available product (i.e., the system of interest – SOI), carefully disassemble it, develop a hypothesis concerning the purpose of the SOI (i.e., the Problem Statement), and conduct a thorough analysis of the SOI using the SysML modeling language, Visio modeling tool, and the Wasson MBSE modeling method. As part of the project, you will consider how the SOI fits into the CreationeeringTM paradigm and a biblical worldview.

note: This assignment is not due until Module 12. The Assignment Instructions are placed in an earlier module for you to preview as you will need to begin working on the assignment prior to the module in which it is due.

System Analysis Assignment Overview

In this assignment, you will develop a Wasson MBSE model of your reverse-engineered product SOi. These model viewpoints (stakeholder requirements, system requirements, system operation, system functions, logical structure, and system architecture) should collectively describe the system of interest using the SysML modeling language, Visio modeling tool, and the Wasson MBSE modeling method.

Instructions

  1. Analyze stakeholder needs and requirements.
    • specify stakeholder requirements using a Requirements Table and SysML Requirements Diagram
  2. Analyze system requirements.
    • specify system requirements using a Requirements Table and SysML Requirements Diagram
  3. Analyze system operation.
    • specify system operation using SysML Use Case Diagram
  4. Analyze system functions.
    • specify system functions using SysML Activity Diagrams
  5. Analyze logical structure.
    • specify logical structure using SysML Block Definition Diagram
  6. Analyze system architecture.
    • specify system architecture using SysML Internal Block Definition Diagrams
  7. Prepare a document of your activities based on the Reverse Engineering Project: Part 4 – System Analysis Template.
  8. Export/Upload the completed document as a pdf file.

Recommendations

  1. Refer to the Systems Engineering Handbook, Chapter 4 section on writing good requirements.
  2. Use Visio to create the required SysML diagrams.
  3. Verify traceability between model perspectives (i.e., Requirements, Operations, Behavioral, Physical).
  4. Elaborate on how the SOI fits into the CreationeeringTM paradigm and a biblical worldview. -How does this SOI show evidence of something God created (i.e., biomimicry)? How could this SOI be used in a ministry application? What Scripture passages relate to this SOI or this stage of the project?

Note: These are minimal requirements. To achieve a higher grade on this assignment, you must exceed these requirements. See the grading rubric for further details.

Note: Your assignment will be checked for originality via the Turnitin plagiarism tool.
