Systems Modeling Language: SysML is a general-purpose graphical modeling language that supports the analysis, specification, design, verification and validation of complex systems.

A modeling system is used for engineering systems so systems engineers can communicate with one another whether they speak English or Japanese, Russian or French. SysML has emerged as the de facto standard system architecture modeling language for Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) applications.

Like learning any new language, learning SysML can be challenging. Since SysML is a dialect of its predecessor UML 2 (Unified Modeling Language), if you are fluent in UML 2 you should be able to learn the SysML dialect relatively quickly. On the other hand, if you have only dabbled with UML 1 and have succumbed to UML 1 worst practices, your previous bad exposure to UML 1 may be a liability rather than an asset.

Experts often recommend a multipronged approach to learning SysML. For example, the student may want to start off with basic SysML hands-on training, followed up by expert coaching (mentoring) for on the job training, which in turn is followed up with advanced SysML hands-on training.

It’s also recommended to read voraciously about SysML techniques and best practices to further benefit from the experience (and mistakes) of others.

The payoff for becoming proficient at SysML is substantial. Unlike its predecessor, SysML is much smaller and easier to learn than UML. Since SysML removes many software-centric and gratuitous constructs, the overall language is smaller as measured in diagram types (9 versus13) and total constructs.

Also, SysML expresses systems engineering semantics (interpretations of notations) better than UML. It reduces UML’s software bias and adds two new diagram types for requirements management and performance analysis: requirement diagrams and parametric diagrams, respectively.

Additionally, SysML model management constructs support the specification of models, views, and viewpoints that are architecturally aligned with IEEE-Std-1471-2000 (IEEE Recommended Practice for Architectural Description of Software-Intensive Systems).
