The OCSMP Model Builder – Fundamental examination tests knowledge and skills required to construct a basic SysML model of a system. The examination covers model concepts and organization, basic requirements capture and management, structure and behavior models, parametric models, allocation relationships, and use of stereotypes. Using the knowledge and skills covered at this level plus familiarity with a suitable SysML modeling tool, a holder of the OCSMP Model Builder – Fundamental Certification should be a productive contributor to modeling tasks performed by a Systems Engineering team employing a model-based systems engineering approach using SysML. The OCSMP Model Builder – Fundamental Certification is a prerequisite for the program’s two higher levels, and requires the OCSMP Model User Certification as its prerequisite.
This examination (as well as the others in the OCSMP series) tests your ability to apply the knowledge and skills listed here in the context of a model of a system. As you study, go beyond each individual diagram to understand how aspects that it models can influence or affect aspects of the system represented in other diagram types.
