This is the fourth in a series of technical notes describing the application of Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) to the specification, design, procurement and evaluation of an Internet-of-Things (IoT) system. One advantage of an object-oriented modeling language such as SysML is that it becomes simpler to compose a model into a larger context. This section

A crucial thread in enabling model-based systems engineering (MBSE) for next-generation complex systems is to analyze system architecture by means of simulations and verify requirements continuously during design and development phases. The general steps in this iterative simulation-based design approach are as follows: Define system architecture (design model) Create a simulation model Run the simulation

The Internet of Things (IoT) holds enormous promise of new capabilities for users and new opportunities for businesses. It also presents enormous challenges to systems engineers. Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) potentially provides an efficient way to address those challenges, being holistic, integrated, flexible and object-oriented. To explore this promise, Intercax has started a series of

Can you spare 3 minutes to learn about the next generation of systems engineering? Our latest video focuses on real use cases, not technology for its own sake. It describes a realistic world with engineering software tools from multiple vendors, with product data spread out across multiple repositories, and with extended supply chains intent on both

MySQL (Oracle) databases are widely used in the engineering world to store libraries of components that may be used across many diverse projects. This information is very useful for system engineers composing system architecture models (e.g. in SysML) from reusable building block library elements. A simple import of data is not enough to ensure that values of
