Intercax has released Syndeia 3.2, a major advance in “breaking the silos”, that is, breaking down the barriers between domain engineering tools and their users to make complex systems development faster and more efficient. We talk about MBE (Model-Based Engineering) rather than MBSE (Model-Based Systems Engineering) which can too easily become one more silo in
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
In Part 1 and Part 2 of this series, we focused entirely on possible visualizations of inter-model connections, i.e. connections created by Syndeia between elements in different tools. But many use-cases require us to trace connections across the system model where the sequences include both inter-model and intra-model connections. Syndeia 3.0 can show many of these,
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.
In Part 1 of this series, we connected individual requirements in DOORS NG to requirements and other elements in SysML. Greater challenges arise when we need to map requirement structure and organization between tools, because different tools organize requirements in significantly different ways. SysML tends to organize requirements in simple tree hierarchies using containment relationships.
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
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
Syndeia Demonstration at IBM Continuous Engineering for the IoT Summit, Long Beach, CA, November 16, 2016
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
