In the context of model-based systems engineering (MBSE), a schema refers to a visual representation or blueprint of how a model captures system components and their relationships. Often used to describe and organize the design of the system model.
The schema provides a high-level overview of the system and its architecture, which can be used for simulations, analysis, and communication among stakeholders.
MBSE schemas can be created using various diagramming techniques, such as block diagrams and activity diagrams. These can serve as a common language for stakeholders to understand and communicate the design of a system model.
