There are so many overlapping definitions, i.e., Model-Based Engineering (MBE), Model-Based Enterprise (MBE), Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE), Model-Based Design (MBD), Model-Based Definition (MBD), etc. So, how do we make sense of it all?

opportunities, with an additional focus on industry status with regards to their adoption.
