Switching from document-centric engineering to Model Based Systems Engineering (MBSE), Systems Engineering (SE) has significantly evolved in terms of standard practices for the design of complex, interdisciplinary systems. MBSE consists in a top-down, model based approach to describe the entire system focusing on different points of view that cover at least structural and behavioral descriptions. Over the past decade, the need to perform an engineering analysis in the early steps of the system's life cycle has opened avenues for joint use of MBSE and Multidisciplinary Design Analysis and Optimization (MDAO). MDAO is fully dedicated to Analysis and Optimization: the model is restricted to a single aspect of the system that is described in details in a formal language that will be the input of the associated computing tool. This paper surveys and categorizes MBSE and MDAO approaches for better understanding of how MBSE and MDAO can be associated in a systems engineering project. Lessons learned from this literature survey will be used in the framework of French project Concorde project. One major expected achievement of the project is to design and implement a methodology to populate parts of the MDAO modeling approach directly from the MBSE one, applied to a UAV case study.
