Of all the use cases potentially supported by Syndeia, links between systems engineering and project management are among the most intriguing. With Syndeia 3.0, a new interface to JIRA’s issue tracking repository offers a window into some of these possibilities. JIRA, widely used in agile software development, is organized by project and issue. As well as

As a project moves from architecture definition to component design, new software tools, such as mechanical computer-aided design (MCAD), become part of the engineering process. The impact of component design decisions needs to be continuously evaluated at the system level. The Syndeia interface for PTC Creo supports a number of use cases from either MagicDraw

In Part 1 of this series, we explored how Syndeia 3.0 generates global displays of connections between various engineering software tools. While these global displays (e.g. Figure 1) provide a snapshot of graph complexity, some very important use cases require us to trace out chains of individual connections and identify those model elements that may

Intercax, an IBM Partner since 2010, joined with IBM and some of its other partners on the Queen Mary to present recent advances in Continuous Engineering. Dr. Dirk Zwemer, President, Intercax, demonstrated how Syndeia, working with IBM Rational Rhapsody, DOORS NG and other tools, could enable rapid development of an IoT product. Watch our demonstration

The Object Management Group (OMG) held its Technical Meeting in Chicago last week, Sep 12-16, 2016. We had the opportunity to present Syndeia at the Systems Engineering Domain Special Interest Group (SE DSIG) meeting on Sep 13. In the presentation, we dived into the motivation and the technical philosophy behind Syndeia – to build a Total System Model that
