Part 1 and Part 2 of this blog series have focused on the SysML models of energy systems (and system-of-systems). In this part (Part 3), we will describe the MBE graphs created when the SysML-based architecture model is connected with discipline-specific models such as CAD models, simulation models, PLM models, requirements model of energy system

Consider a healthcare facility with independent software systems for each department. A system engineer is tasked with developing a message exchange system between the departments based on the HL7 Version 2 standards. She begins by describing the interfaces and content exchanged between departments based on SysML interface blocks. The flow properties of these interface blocks are typed

In Part 1 of the blog series on Syndeia-JIRA interface, we described how Syndeia can connect to and browse JIRA repositories, and generate and connect SysML blocks from JIRA issues so that the block’s value properties mirror the issue characteristics like status, last update, etc. In Part 2, we showed how a multi-level SysML structure (e.g.

Introduction Every system development project has both product-specific and project-specific considerations: Product-specific includes product requirements (market, technical, regulatory), product function and hardware and software design Project-specific includes organization structure, project requirements, and product development methodology The intersection of these two domains is often the Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) which captures the product-specific tasks in the

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

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

Healthcare, in the US and globally, faces a challenge: how to offer a broader range of preventative, diagnostic and therapeutic services to a greater number of consumers without a proportionate increase in cost or decline in quality. Systems Engineering can help address this challenge, but only if we accept that healthcare involves a wide range
