A recommended best practice for any Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) approach is the synergistic application of Model-Based Languages, Model-Based Tools, Model-Based Processes, and Model-Based Architecture Frameworks. After a decade of pragmatic experience applying Systems Modeling Language (SysML) to tough systems engineering problems, SysML has emerged as the de facto Model-Based Language choice for MBSE projects.

The Systems Modeling Language is a general-purpose architecture modeling language for Systems Engineering applications with these characteristics:

  • SysML supports the specification, analysis, design, verification and validation of a broad range of systems and systems-of-systems.These systems may include hardware, software, information, processes, personnel, and facilities.
  • SysML is a dialect of UML 2, and is defined as a UML 2 Profile (UML customization that defines language extensions via Stereotypes, Tagged Values, and Constraints.)
  • The OMG adopted OMG SysML as a standard in 2006 and continues to maintain it.
  • SysML is an enabling technology for Model-Based Systems Engineering(MBSE) applications.

SysML is a popular architecture modeling language standard among systems engineers because of its lingua franca (common language) quality, which improves the precision and efficiency of communications with fellow systems engineers as well as other system and business stakeholders such as mechanical engineers, electrical engineers, software engineers and even clients.

The SysML dialect of UML 2 is particularly popular as it extends the UML standard for software-intensive applications so that it can be applied to systems engineering applications.

The list of reasons systems engineers apply an MBSE + SysML approach to their systems engineering applications are numerous. Here are a few:

  • Capture and manage corporate Intellectual Property related to system architectures, analyses, designs and processes
  • Compare and contrast “As Is” and “To Be” solutions
  • Provide scalable structure for problem-solving
  • Furnish rich abstractions to manage size and complexity
  • Explore multiple solutions or ideas concurrently with minimal risk
  • Detect errors and omissions early in System Development Life Cycle (SDLC)
