Monterey Phoenix Behavioral Modeling Immersion Workshop – Member Only Event

Virtual Workshop: May 18th, 2022, 11:00 AM ET
Monterey Phoenix Immersion Workshop – Member Only Event (Members of Lifecycle Modeling Organization have access to exclusive webinars and workshops.)

Members can join us Wednesday, May 18th, 2022 11:00 am ET for a systems engineering workshop taught by Naval Postgraduate School Associate Professor, Dr. Kristin Giammarco.

This is an immersive workshop designed to engage participants on how to create least restrictive system behavior models using Monterey Phoenix (MP). This is a 2-hour practitioners’ activity, so bring your own mission, system, or process and prepare to model with coaching in breakout rooms.


If your work deals with mission-critical behavior, you may be concerned about what could go wrong that won’t occur to you – or anyone – until it’s too late. Or if you work with business processes (don’t we all), you may be frustrated by excessive inefficiencies due to exception-cases not considered when the process was initially designed. Scenarios that could cause things to break down are difficult to expose before seeing examples of those breakdowns (too often, during real operations). Now, we can generate synthetic example “event traces” that expose what we know, and also some of what we (or a decision-maker) did not previously realize could happen. At this immersion workshop, you will see how Monterey Phoenix (MP) can be used to help find potential gotchas before they get you (or someone else), reducing risk and saving costs in dollars, resources, and even lives. These are not always technical flaws but are often overlooked assumptions you didn’t realize were being made and missed requirements you didn’t know were needed until seeing them manifest from generated MP event traces. Workforce members from every career background are able to learn how to do this. MP is Navy-developed, open-source, and free to use.

About Your Instructor

Dr. Kristin Giammarco is a founder of the Lifecycle Modeling Language.  She is an Associate Professor in the Department of Systems Engineering at the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS), where she teaches courses in system architecture and design, system integration, systems software engineering, and model-based systems engineering. She conducts research in the use and development of formal methods for systems architecture modeling as well as system and software behavioral modeling and architectural patterns with students and colleagues within and outside of NPS.  Dr. Giammarco is a member of INCOSE, the Lifecycle Modeling Language Steering Committee, and the International Society for Systems Pathology.  She holds a Ph.D. in Software Engineering, an M.S. in Systems Engineering Management, and a Certificate in Advanced Systems Engineering from NPS and a B.E. in Electrical Engineering from Stevens Institute of Technology.
