In earlier parts of this series, we introduced some ideas about Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) approaches to the development of Autonomous Vehicles (AVs). Our specific interest in this series is the modeling of requirements in combination with functional architecture, software configuration repositories and project management. Part 2 focused on requirements; now we will add functions.

In Part 1 of this series, we introduced some ideas about Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) approaches to the development of Autonomous Vehicles (AVs). Our specific interest in this series is the modeling of requirements in combination with functional architecture, software configuration repositories and project management. With Syndeia, the system engineer has two general approaches by

Of the many tool Syndeia connects, the Simulink interface has attracted some of the greatest interest. Intercax has just released a new video describing this interface for Syndeia 3.1. At seven minutes long, it provides an overview and demonstration of some of the use cases it supports in linking SysML (MagicDraw or IBM Rational Rhapsody)

Intercax introduced the Syndeia interface for Jama Software in May, 2017 and described it in multiple formats, including a blog post and white paper and a webinar. What has been missing is a concise overview to introduce new potential users to the interface features and use cases. We have added an 8-minute video as a resource

Autonomous vehicles (AVs) represent one of the greatest challenges yet to system engineering. Not only are AVs complex systems in their own right, they are potentially part of a larger connected infrastructure of smart roads. Model-based approaches, including SysML modeling, represent a game-changing opportunity to meet that challenge. In this blog series, we shall look

In previous posts, I described multiple types of projects or use cases that system engineers work on and proposed an alternate image to the classic V-model. In Part 3 of this series, I suggested a cyclical spiral of Architecture and Design Synthesis Analysis and Simulation Verification and Validation as a useful representation, what I will
