This dissertation contributes to model-based systems engineering (MBSE) by formally defining an MBSE methodology for employing architecture in system analysis (MEASA) that presents a comprehensive framework detailing the relationship between system architecture products and external models and simulations used to analyze system performance and feasibility. Specifically, the research combines the use of Systems Modeling Language (SysML) products and operational simulation models to support assessment of system requirements for systems engineering. The MBSE MEASA transforms operational needs into preferred system configurations through the analysis of detailed simulation models. The research does this by using designed experiments to generate architecture tradespace visualizations that highlight the impact that system design parameters, system-environment interactions, system operational implementation, and system component interactions have on system performance. The research demonstrates a procedure for iterations of the methodology when analysis suggests potentially impactful design, operational, or environmental variables (as well as potential interactions between those variables). The research develops and analyzes notional architecture products and simulation models of United States Navy mine warfare systems to demonstrate an application of the MBSE MEASA.
