  "abstract": "<p>Model Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) approaches are rapidly spreading among<br>\norganizations and industries due to all their claimed benefits over traditional document-<br>\nbased approaches. Benefits include for instance enhanced design quality of systems, clearer<br>\ndevelopment of system requirements and specifications and improved communications<br>\nwithin the design teams. Currently, MBSE methods and tools are mainly employed to<br>\nsuccessfully develop complex systems, such as aircraft or its components. However, this<br>\npaper proposes to adopt MBSE also in the design of development systems, which aim to<br>\ndesign complex systems. In particular, this paper focuses on the first activities of a typical<br>\nSystems Engineering Product Development process: identification of system stakeholders,<br>\ncollection of their needs and development of system requirements. The main outcome<br>\ndelivered from this paper is an architectural framework, i.e. a guideline for the modeling of<br>\ncomplex systems. More specifically, the architectural framework is still under development,<br>\nand hence the current version focuses on the modeling of stakeholders, needs and<br>\nrequirements of complex systems. The focus of the proposed architectural framework is on<br>\nthe agility for the definition phases of complex systems. In other words, it is developed to<br>\nstreamline, improve and accelerate the definition and modeling of complex systems. Details<br>\nof the architectural framework including the means to represent all the system information<br>\nare provided. In addition, the architectural framework for the development of complex<br>\nsystems is supported by an MBSE development system, currently being addressed in the EU-<br>\nfunded research project AGILE 4.0. The MBSE development system is presented in this<br>\npaper together with an example of its application for the definition of complex systems: an<br>\nhorizontal tail plane for a regional jet aircraft, designed and manufactured within an<br>\naeronautical supply chain consisting of different companies.</p>",
