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.
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
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.
Are you a systems engineer that wants to be able to see a CAD model or check out the system-level impact of design changes? Maybe you’re a CAD designer who wants to receive requirements in a clearer, more efficient format? Interfacing SysML and CAD models covers a myriad of potential use cases. Syndeia 2.0 introduced
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
