Critical concepts of MBSE are articulated and main obstacles for traditional system engineering approach are analyzed. On the basis of the analysis, two original incentives of the development of MBSE, cost and demand, are demonstrated. Finally, two probable boosters for MBSE's development are proposed as future R&D paradigm transition and AI-based knowledge exploitation technology.
