Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) is moving from traditional Systems Engineering (SE), focusing on managing documentation, to Model Based Systems Engineering (MBSE), focusing on a system model (All Partners Access Network, n.d.). As NAVAIR transitions to an MBSE standard, controlling the Configuration Management (CM) of a fleet of a single series of aircraft in varying states of engineering change incorporations will be critical. Traditional systems engineering and configuration management are both text document focused disciplines that have existed since the end of World War II. The method chosen to conduct the research was by performing a case study on MBSE as related to configuration management challenges with different aircraft variants as the SE methodology transforms from document based to model based at NAVAIR.
