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

As we enter a new decade of technological advancements, Jama Software asked select thought leaders from various industries for the trends and events they foresee unfolding over the next 10 years.In the second installment of our 2020s Predictions series, they feartured predictions from Dirk Zwemer, President at Intercax, a global innovator in the field of model-based systems

The value of building a Digital Thread goes well beyond the point-to-point integrations from which it is built. It lies in the ability of all project members to find and access the information they need in any tool, database or repository where it resides. This capability must accommodate real development projects with millions of model

The emphasis in this blog series has been on “Requirements by Geometry”, the integration of requirements, architecture and 3D mechanical CAD models using MBSE. However, after publication of the first three parts of this series, readers expressed interest in the SysML models used in the example, so we are making them available, along with a
