In this post, we will continue the example begun in Part 4. We are evaluating the Syndeia interoperability platform from Intercax using the criteria for evaluating integration solutions (IS) laid out in the first three parts of the series. In this part, we will focus on technical approaches to integrating models. No particular technical approach

As Model-Based Systems Engineering enters the mainstream, an increasing number of integration solutions (IS) have been proposed, causing some confusion particularly among new adopters. In the first three parts of this blog series, we laid out some of the issues that should be considered in picking an IS for your organization. In the next three

In the previous two posts, I discussed some of the issues affecting the choice of integration solutions for organizations adopting Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) practices, particularly objectives and technical approaches. My assumption is that the ultimate goal of MBSE, to specify the system with a single digital model, requires the enterprise at some stage to

In evaluating the many available integration solutions, the technical approaches taken by each should be subordinate to the user functionality they provide. But, of course, the two are closely related and an understanding of the different approaches can enhance the overall ability to make the best choice. In this section of the blog series, we

As the practice of Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) is advancing, the focus is shifting from the implementation of new tools such as SysML authoring tools to the integration of these tools in the larger systems development process. Increasing numbers of integration solutions are being offered. The purpose of this multi-part blog series is to lay
