Abstract ( 211 )
Model-based Systems Engineering is a new trend in the current Chinese industry It adopts model-based approaches to formalize the system development and minimize the risk brought by design changes of the later development phase. The model-based approaches can be used for across domain integrations of the whole life cycle of products. Though MBSE has been widely used in specific domains, such as software, mechanical systems and electric systems, the system-level integration has not been realized. This paper introduces the results of questionnaires about MBSE application in China. The results can be used for current system developers to understand MBSE and its trends.

Abstract ( 125 )
This paper briefly introduced the necessary steps of tailoring during the application of systems engineering. There are two levels of tailoring:organization-level tailoring and project-level tailoring. A practical tailoring strategy is proposed, cutting unnecessary processes/activities and tasks at first, then adjusting or calibrating in accordance with precise needs. On the basis of references of mature methods, some mistakes and traps are listed to be avoided. At last, in the light of tailoring strategies, a series of domain cases are analyzed from the view of systems engineering application. These research results could be reference for the proper application of systems engineering in the new domains.

Abstract ( 100 )
Landing ship is an important transport equipment in amphibious warfare. Aiming at the complexity of its motion law, a maneuvering model of landing ship based on MMG is established in deep and shallow water. When a landing ship is sailing, the thrust of the propeller is the main force, which is used to overcome the resistance of the water and maintain the maneuvering motion of the ship. Therefore, the hydrodynamic model of propeller is an important component of landing ship motion modeling. On the basis of the special maneuvering model of landing ship, the model of propeller force in maneuvering motion of landing ship is emphatically introduced.
