The purpose of MBSE is to deal with the complexity problem of systems engineering through simultaneously using information, computation and software technologies to bridge the gap between system engineering and individual domain engineering, e.g., embedded, safety, mechanical, etc. Integrate product team (IPT) is a critical enabler for effective MBSE's application risk control while the maturity of MBSE tool chain or model based engineering environment is a vital fact that will strongly affect the enterprise application. Facing the trend of overwhelming digitalization of 4th industrial revolution, we must realize the necessity of integrating MBSE process with PLM/PDM as well as the understanding and reconstructing MBSE in a big context of digital engineering and digital thread.
