Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) is becoming increasingly popular, not only in research but also in industrial companies. However, MBSE approaches (i.e. methods, frameworks, ontologies, and tools) are usually developed at a scientific level, so that they are too generic and formal for a company's internal use leading to acceptance issues in industrial practice. Against this background, this contribution presents a comprehensive user-oriented MBSE methodology tackling this lack of acceptance in industrial practice. Based on ten previously derived fields of action for individual and organizational acceptance of MBSE approaches, a first positive evaluation of the MBSE methodology has been received. In this contribution, a further developed MBSE methodology is presented, which is created in cooperation of partners from research and industry. Assessment of this further developed MBSE methodology with six companies across different industries shows a positive impact on acceptance in comparison to existing MBSE approaches across the identified fields of action. Major improvements are seen regarding the perceived performance and benefit of MBSE, the usability of the modeling tool, and the communication within a development team. ... mehr
