Intercax is a leader in helping organizations adopt best practices for Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE). Both by itself and in collaboration with the Georgia Institute of Technology, it has been providing training in MBSE and SysML to working engineers since 2008 in live, onsite and online classes, with 4000+ participants. Intercax is now offering an

I recently had a thought-provoking discussion with a Computer-Aided Design (CAD) expert about Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE).  While I was prepared to show Syndeia’s features for connecting SysML models with NX or Creo, his concerns were more fundamental.  First, he pointed out that our examples in the introductory videos were “trivial” and not how people

Introduction In Part 1, we created a SysML model for an IoT product and the system engineering project for developing the IoT product. This model is represented by the gray blocks in the center of Figure 1. Figure 1 Total System Model architecture However, we must recognize that most of the engineering effort takes place

In Part 1 and Part 2 of this series, we focused entirely on possible visualizations of inter-model connections, i.e. connections created by Syndeia between elements in different tools. But many use-cases require us to trace connections across the system model where the sequences include both inter-model and intra-model connections. Syndeia 3.0 can show many of these,

Consider a healthcare facility with independent software systems for each department. A system engineer is tasked with developing a message exchange system between the departments based on the HL7 Version 2 standards. She begins by describing the interfaces and content exchanged between departments based on SysML interface blocks. The flow properties of these interface blocks are typed

In Part 1 of the blog series on Syndeia-JIRA interface, we described how Syndeia can connect to and browse JIRA repositories, and generate and connect SysML blocks from JIRA issues so that the block’s value properties mirror the issue characteristics like status, last update, etc. In Part 2, we showed how a multi-level SysML structure (e.g.
