The SysML v2 Specialization Kinds

Specialization is an important concept in modeling languages. The upcoming SysML v2 has a solid foundation of different kinds of specializations. This article provides an overview. In SysML v1 (and UML) the concept is called Generalization – just upside down.. It is basically the same, although the details are different.

Should we use SysML Modeling Tools for Requirements Management?

Recently I had an exchange with Fatih Erkan from Philips on the topic of whether SysML tools are suitable for managing requirements. We had a long chat on LinkedIn, followed by a meeting with the Philips MBSE Team (Louis Stroucken, Joshua Shreve, Patric Wender), and thought it would be a good idea to share it…

SysML v2 Modeling Tools

To get an overview of the SysML v2 tool landscape, I have collected the tools in a list.

Definition MBSE Model

An MBSE Model is a model that represents systems and their environments and is based on a modeling language that covers concepts of systems engineering.

Definition of MBSE – Revised

Definition of MBSE: Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) is systems engineering with the formal application of models to make engineering information accessible to machines to support the stakeholders.

Definition of MBSE

There is a lot of information about MBSE available: books, blogs, podcasts, videos, and so on. But how it MBSE defined? MBSE stands for Model-Based Systems Engineering. A good source for systems engineering definitions is INCOSE. They define MBSE as follows: The formalized application of modeling to support system requirements, design, analysis, verification and validation…

SysML v2 Logo

2022 will be an important Year for SysML v2

SysML v2 has been talked about for a very long time. But when is it finally coming?

SysML v2 Lab

The SysML v2 Lab

The SysML v2 Lab is an open service to experiment with the pilot implementation of SysML v2. It is an online lab for the MBSE community to easily try out SysML v2, share experiences or learn from others’ experiences.

SysML v1.6 Reference Card published

It was long overdue, but now I finally did it: I finished the popular reference sheets for SysML for the current SysML version 1.6. You can find them on the download page of the MBSE4U website.

Free the Models

The engineering of the future is digital and collaborative. It’s time to get our models out of the cages of the various tools.

Technically, it doesn’t take that much at all. The key is openness and simplicity. For example, a REST API already enables an unimagined variety of possibilities.
