MBSE in Enterprise Architecture Using SysML and UPDM

MBSE (Model Based Systems Engineering) is the future of SE. MBSE helps to improve the productivity of systems developing by moving from document based approach to the modeling. However SysML is neither a modeling methodology nor a framework. Our clients reached the best results using SysML within the Defense Architecture Frameworks. The main identified benefits […]

Meet the Newest SysML-based Document Modeling Solution for MBSE

We’re happy to introduce you to our new plugin that serves the purpose of modeling the structure of documents. Its predecessor, the Model Based Document Generator (MBDG), was developed in 2009 by ESO (European Southern Observatory), ten years after the organization started to implement a “one document” approach. The MBDG plugin for MagicDraw was developed […]

Model Based Systems Engineering for Astronomical Projects

Model Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) is an emerging field of systems engineering for which the System Modeling Language (SysML) is a key enabler for descriptive, prescriptive and predictive models. This paper surveys some of the capabilities, expectations and peculiarities of tools-assisted MBSE experienced in real-life astronomical projects. The examples range in depth and scope across […]
