SysML Training

SysML MagicGrid Framework

SysML is a general-purpose architecture modeling language for Systems Engineering applications that supports the specification, analysis, design, verification, and validation of a broad range of systems and systems-of-systems.

Some of the systems supported by SysML include hardware, software, information, processes, personnel and facilities.

OMG formulated SysML 12 years ago. The aim was to create a simple, yet powerful modelling language for a wide range of applications in systems engineering.

Today, perhaps SysML is best recognized as an enabling technology for Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE).

Most experts in this field believe that MBSE with SysML offers the generic element type requirement, as well as subclasses: business requirement, usability requirement, functional requirement, performance requirement, interface requirement, physical requirement, and design constraint.

SysML is based on its predecessor Unified Modeling Language (UML) and replaces the modeling of classes and objects by block modeling for a vocabulary more suited to System Engineering.

According to the OMG (Object Management Group) there are four sets of viewpoints that are captured in SysML:

  1. Structural – These viewpoints establish the definition of elements: the composition of systems, their properties and organizational grouping.
  2. Behavioral — Viewpoints that describe how these elements function.
  3. Requirements – These viewpoints allow for a systems engineer to create, relate, trace, and analyze the formal requirements within the SoS.
  4. Parametric – These viewpoints allow for the application of constraints on systems via logical and mathematical expressions.

SysML facilitates the description of complex system design, as a hierarchy of interacting system components, while at the same time enables the independent description of each component behavior.

However, in order for the system designer to decide whether a SoS architecture is efficient, non-functional properties, such as performance or cost, should also be taken into consideration.

The term Model-Based Systems Engineering and its acronym MBSE are popular among Systems Engineers who advocate the use of SysML as a standard architecture modeling language for Systems Engineering applications, and who want to distinguish their approach from Model-Driven Development and its variants, which tend to be software centric.

SysML (Systems Modeling Language) is based on UML and replaces the modeling of classes and objects by block modeling for a vocabulary more suited to Systems Engineering. A block encompasses all software, hardware, data, process and even people management concepts.

For systems engineers, Systems Modeling Language (SysML) basically helps in representing system-related information in universally accepted dynamic diagrams. Essentially, SysML extends UML with powerful systems engineering capabilities for modeling a wider spectrum of systems and capturing all aspects of a system’s design.

The advantage of Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) and SysML is the ability to create models/diagrams for the system instead of using documents. When the systems engineer defines or creates something in a diagram, the SysML tool maintains consistency in all the other diagrams in a process called traceability.

Benefits of SysML include:

  • Improved communications
  • Assists in managing complex system development
  • Separation of concerns
  • Hierarchical modeling
  • Other life cycle support (such as training)
  • Improved design quality
  • Reduced errors and ambiguity
  • More complete representation
  • Support incremental development and evolutionary acquisition.

This reliance on diagrams rather than documents has catapulted SysML as the de facto enabling technology and modeling language for MBSE.

In December, SysML 1.6 was published by the Object Management Group (OMG), which describes itself as an international, open membership, not-for-profit technology standards consortium.

A major change in SysML 1.6 is the removal of the constraint that properties typed by a block must be defined as an end of an association. In practice, you can now, for example, create part properties in an internal block diagram without modeling a composition association relationship.

Systems Modeling Language Training Course is an extension to Systems Engineering training providing a comprehensive and practical resource for modeling systems with SysML.

SysML Training

The Systems Modeling Language (SysML) is a visual modeling language useful for Systems Engineering applications supporting the specification, analysis, design, verification and validation of a broad range of systems and systems-of-systems (SoS).

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 (Profile = UML customization that uses Stereotypes, Tagged Values, and Constraints). SysML is an enabling technology for Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE)

SysML for Systems Engineering includes Systems modeling, System Analysis and System Design as essential enabling techniques for systems engineering processes Systems Modeling Language, a subset of UML for Systems Engineering.

SysML Training Course provides technical details of SysML as a systems engineering modeling language. The syntax of SysML is covered and each concept is explained through a number of hands-on practical application workshops and a complete SysML v1.3 Reference Guide.
