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
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
InterCAX and Georgia Tech collaborate to provide a lot of MBSE and SysML training. After the introductory course on SysML language, new modelers are inclined to ask, “What next?” They are looking for guidance on how to start using modeling for their own work. They want a process, a methodology, even a template, and these
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
The Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) workshop held at the INCOSE International Workshop in Torrance, CA, USA (Jan 24-25, 2015) hosted a tool vendor challenge in the Model Lifecycle Management track. The challenge problem was the design of a configurable UAV platform that can be used for developing UAVs for different missions, ranging from security and
e are proud to announce SLIM 1.0 beta, the first public release of our SLIM software for integrated model-based systems engineering. SLIM enables systems engineers to develop and manage the high-level architecture of a system/product in SysML and simultaneously connect, communicate, and sync with detailed requirements, parts (bill of materials and CAD), simulation models (MATLAB/Simulink,
