Model-Based Engineering (MBE) at NASA Goddard
Wednesday, February 24, 2016
Building 3 Auditorium - 11:40 AM
(Coffee and cookies at 10:30 AM)
Practitioners across NASA, industry, and academia are, through a formalized application of modeling to systems engineering, supporting systems requirements, design, analysis, verification, and validation activities across the project lifecycle and are already using Model-Based Engineering (MBE) to support research and flight projects in order to enable the next group of practitioners to begin modeling their own systems. This talk will give a general overview of what MBE is, how it is used across NASA, industry and academia, and will describe the next steps to bring this technology to NASA Goddard missions and projects.
Kris Romig is currently an Associate Branch Head in the Instrument and Payload Systems Engineering (IPSE) Branch at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC). IPSE provides systems engineering support to in-house and out of house GSFC instruments and hosted payload projects through all phases of the project lifecycle. The IPSE Branch is also responsible for all systems engineering training, and tools and methods development at GSFC. One of Mr. Romig's areas of focus within the branch is in the development and coordination of Model Based Systems Engineering tools and capabilities for GSFC.
Previously Mr. Romig worked at NASA Headquarters (HQ) as the Deputy Chief Engineer for the Exploration Systems Mission Directorate (ESMD) in the Office of Chief Engineer (OCE). In this capacity Mr. Romig was responsible for providing program lifecycle and systems engineering expertise to human exploration programs and projects such as the Constellation and Commercial Orbital Transportation Services (COTS) programs. Prior to his work at NASA HQ, Mr. Romig spent over nine years working as a propulsion engineer and project manager/systems engineer at the Johnson Space Center (JSC). He supported the Space Shuttle Program and worked to develop cryogenic propulsion component and system level technologies for future exploration missions.
Mr. Romig has a BS in Aerospace Engineering from the Pennsylvania State University, an MS in Space Architecture from the University of Houston, and a MS in Systems Architecture and Engineering from the University of Southern California.
