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

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

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

Modern engineering uses computer models. A model is a simplified representation of a real object or system that captures some limited aspect of it. For example, a CAD model captures its geometry, a simulation model its behavior, and so on. The most effective models combine a graphical representation, which humans can see and understand, with
