How should such techniques be adapted to be useful to systems engineers? This paper will show how an Object-Oriented Systems Engineering Method (OOSEM) addresses these questions and how the(More)
This paper describes a concept for a parameter-based representation (PBR) to model complex systems. The representation combines features from both process and object-oriented representations, including IDEFO, data and control flow diagrams, entity relationship attribute (ERA) diagrams, and parameter dependency diagrams. PBR applies and extends many concepts(More)
