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

Modern systems are heavily software-intensive. Model-Based Engineering (MBE) must incorporate software configuration management systems (also called application lifecycle management systems or ALM) into the total system model in its goal to bring all system information into a common structure. Syndeia 3.0 offers our first interface into this domain with an interface to GitHub. GitHub is

The International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE) and the Project Management Institute (PMI) have been working together for several years exploring the connection between systems engineering and program/project management (link to INCOSE and PMI Survey), but relatively little attention has been paid to integrating the software tools popular in the two domains. Syndeia is trying

Syndeia 3.0 offers a new option for a DOORS NG interface for MagicDraw and Rhapsody SysML modeling tools. The integration of requirements databases with system architecture modeling (SysML) is of high value to the practitioners in the field of MBE/MBSE. Although several solutions have been offered in the past, they address only the basic use case(s). Syndeia

Since its introduction, Syndeia has supported Model-Based Engineering (MBE). Syndeia has enabled users to create connections between models in different tools and to use those connections to compare and update those models, but it has only displayed the connections in simple tabular formats. Syndeia 3.0 provides some important new options for visualizing the model connections.

One area in the biomedical and healthcare domain where MBSE has made significant progress is in medical device design and manufacture. At the same time, device suppliers use modern PLM (product lifecycle management) and CAD (computer-aided design) like other organizations engaged in complex engineering problems. The first figure below shows the SysML structural decomposition of

This blog post introduces the second installment in our series of notes outlining different scenarios for using Syndeia 2.0 to generate, connect, and compare Simulink and SysML models. Part 1 showed how SysML block and activity structures can be used to generate Simulink model reference structures, including both atomic and multi-signal ports. Part 2 will describe how

Efficiency in healthcare delivery has long been a target of systems engineering and operations analysis effort. Improvements in emergency room care, for example, can lead to better outcomes and better patient experience while reducing the cost of care. In this post, we apply simple parametric analysis to testing medical facility staffing and supply against requirements,
