MBSE to Address Logical Text-Based Requirements Issues

Requirements quality is big problem which causes projects to delay and be out of budget. This means a lot of money in case of complex SE projects (Fig 1). Traditional requirement management toolsquality problem address by using natural language analysis with different rules to check for requirements duplication, overlapping, and bad language. Most of those […]

Building Executable SysML Model – Automatic Transmission System (Part 1)

SysML allow both structural and behavioral modeling of the system. SysML models can be formally interpreted and executed. Ones executed analysis can be performed at system level. Ones we are good with simulation results we can prototype. Using programmable Lego Mindstors NXT for prototyping is an out of the box way to test and demonstrate […]

The Transport for NSW Transport Network Architecture Model

This is one of the best example of system architecture (SA) application. Model is based on The Railway Architecture Framework (TRAK), a general enterprise architecture framework that sets the rules to develop systems architecture models across the aerospace, defense and transport industries, and is based on MODAF. Actual model adopts languages as: Unified Profile for […]

History of Element Changes

Another feature No Magic, Inc. includes in Teamwork Cloud is the ability to track the history of model elements. If you are working with a server project, this allows you to review and compare differences in earlier project versions. A new version of the project is created each time the project is committed to the […]

Adapting the GUI of an Executable System Model to specific Variants using PLE Tool integrations

Product Line Engineering (PLE) is the engineering of a family of related products using a shared set of (digital) engineering assets. In case of physical systems, before the actual production of a product line begins, a whole set of digital artifacts must be maintained to describe the entire family (variants) of products. In the context […]

Smart Port Layout and Style

Creating blocks and defining their ports are one of the most common tasks performed by systems engineers. These elements are reused in the entire model. Therefore, it is very important to maintain the same appearance of the block as defined in a Block Definition diagram, especially when they are used as parts of the system. […]

Custom Metrics: How to Convert List of Elements into Number?

You might already thought about tracking metrics based on model data. However how difficult is to create your own metric? Using MagicDraw metrics capability and structured expression dialog to setup almost any metric logic and calculate it requires no coding. If you already using structured expression dialog to query model for derived properties or smart […]

Total Mass, Cost, and Power Rollups

The rollup calculations are among the most common use cases in systems engineering. System modelers want to calculate total mass, cost, power, or another system dimension, based on individual values of all the parts in the model. During this webinar, you will learn how to perform different kind of rollup calculations in the MagicDraw model with Cameo […]
