Come and learn how to take control of your product and make it target the most valuable business markets, by applying efficient model-based architectural design principles in a Product Line Engineering (PLE) context.

When combined effectively, Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) and PLE can lead to extremely efficient and capable product systems engineering. An integrated approach combining effective processes and practices allow us to yield greater benefits than each of these approaches alone. Along with efficient supporting tools, we are able to obtain the full benefits of Model-Based Product Line Systems Engineering (MBPLSE).

This hands-on tutorial will walk you through the essential practices of systems engineering, architectural design and MBSE in a PLE perspective. The tutorial will also give you an opportunity to demystify model-based approaches thanks to a practical methodology supported by an open MBPLSE solution.
Hugo Guillermo Chalé Gongora
Hugo Guillermo Chalé Gongora is Product Line Engineering Director at Thales in charge of the development and deployment of PLE at Group level.
He has over 18 years of experience in Systems Engineering and Product Line Engineering in Energy, Infrastructure, Automotive, Railway and, most recently, Aerospace and Defence, where he has worked both on the tailoring and on the application of SE, MBSE and PLE to the development of complex systems and products. Over the years, he has been particularly interested in safety-critical systems, formal methods, architecture description languages and autonomous systems.
He holds a PhD on Energy & Thermal Systems, a Master on Energy Conversion and Internal Combustion Engines, and an Engineering Degree on Mechanical-Electrical Engineering.
He is the author of several papers and has been the recipient of best paper awards on MBSE and PLE at the INCOSE Intl. Symposium, the CSDM Conference and the AFIS Conference.
Guillermo is the Chair of the INCOSE PLE International WG, former founder and chair of the INCOSE Automotive WG and member of the INCOSE Transportation WG and the MBSE Initiative.
Stephane Bonnet
Stephane Bonnet is the Design Authority of the Thales MBSE workbench for systems, hardware and software architectural design. He holds a PhD in software engineering.
From 2008 onwards, he has led the development of Capella. In charge of Corporate MBSE and PLE coaching team, he dedicates most of his time to training and coaching activities worldwide, for Thales and other organizations. He accompanies systems engineering managers and systems architects implement MBSE/PLE approaches on operational projects, helping them define their engineering schemes, objectives, and guidelines.
He is animating networks of experts from all Thales domains and business units to capture operational needs and orient the method and workbench evolutions and roadmaps.
He is the author of multiple papers on MBSE and is a member of the SysML v2 Working Group.
Juan Navas
Juan Navas is a Systems Architect with +10 years’ experience on performing and implementing Systems Engineering practices in industrial organizations. He has worked on the design and the procurement of instrumentation & control systems and simulation systems for petrochemical plants, nuclear fuel cycle plants and nuclear power plants.
He has lead projects to improve software and systems engineering performance following Model-Based Systems Engineering approaches. He accompanies systems engineering managers and systems architects implement MBSE/PLE approaches on operational projects, helping them define their engineering schemes, objectives, and guidelines.
He holds a PhD on embedded software computer science (Brest, France), a MSc Degree on control and computer science from MINES ParisTech (Paris, France) and Electronics and Electrical Engineering Degrees from Universidad de Los Andes (Bogota, Colombia).
