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

In Part 1 of this series, we described a multi-arm robot or unmanned ground vehicle (UGV) and the use of Syndeia, the MBSE interoperability platform from Intercax, to transform text-based requirements from a Jama repository into a SysML model in Cameo Systems Modeler (No Magic).  In Part 2, we created an alternate model-based representation in

A regular challenge in developing complex systems is integrating requirements with mechanical design. When requirements governing system geometry are in text form, they are often easy to misinterpret. Sketches and other images may be simpler, but they are not model-based. Our objective is to pass requirements to the design engineer in a clear, model-based way,

When we build a Digital Thread by sharing information between federated models, the question regularly arises, how do we determine which is the master repository for each type of data? Syndeia, the MBSE interoperability platform from Intercax, does not pre-define this. Syndeia is a flexible set of services for connecting, accessing and sharing models between

The phrase “Digital Thread” is ubiquitous in modern engineering, but newcomers may find it hard to find answers to What is the Digital Thread? Are there real commercially-available solutions? How will it benefit my organization? Enterprises have many software tools and databases and system data is distributed across them. At the same time, these organiztions
