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

The V-model has long provided a metaphor for the classic systems engineering (SE) process, but it is problematic in the Model-Based Engineering (MBE) context: Figure 1 The Systems Engineering V-model It does not reflect much of the work systems engineers actually do. Of the six generic use cases we described in Part 1 of this

Most MBSE methodologies place emphasis on organizing the model correctly before actually modeling the system, but this task should not be approached too narrowly.  First, as we discussed in a previous blog, modeling should encompass both the system under development and the project structure, which includes both process and organization. Model organization should facilitate collaboration
