Model-based Software Engineering (MBSE) is now accepted as aSoftware Engineering (SE) discipline and is being taught as part ofmore general SE curricula. However, an agreed core of concepts,mechanisms and practices — which constitutes the Body of Knowl-edge of a discipline — has not been captured anywhere, and is onlypartially covered by the SE Body of Knowledge (SWEBOK). Withthe goals of characterizing the contents of the MBSE discipline,promoting a consistent view of it worldwide, clarifying its scopewith regard to other SE disciplines, and defining a foundation for acurriculum development on MBSE, this paper provides a proposalfor an extension of the contents of SWEBOK with the set of funda-mental concepts, terms and mechanisms that should constitute the MBSE Body of Knowledge.
