Speaking to Shephard on 12 January, BAE Systems chief engineer Dr Scott Nowlin said that investment in 'model-based systems engineering approaches' was paying dividends for work such as design assessment, risk management, and configuration management.

Nowlin explained the concepts, saying: 'Digital engineering is mainly aligned with setting up your infrastructure, your framework, to do the great systems engineering that we do [at BAE Systems].

'And then model-based systems engineering is using that digital engineering framework to execute exceptional requirements development and management, exceptional design, work, and sustainment of weapon systems once they're fielded.'
