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 […]

Model Lifecycle Management

Today  there  is  increasing  recognition  of  the  potential  MBSE brings to system life cycle processes with the increasing complexity of systems and the  demands  of  the  global  marketplace.  In  order  for  the  practice  to  realize  this potential,  system  modeling  and  MBSE  must  be  part  of the  larger  model  based engineering  effort,  and  integrate  with  other  […]

MBSE in Telescope Modeling: European Extremely Large Telescope - World’s biggest eye on the sky

The most ambitious project of the European Southern Observatory’s (ESO) is the construction of the European Extremely Large Telescope (E-ELT) which will be by far the world’s largest optical and near-infrared telescope, and will provide images 15 times sharper than those from the Hubble Space Telescope. Such a project poses continuous challenges to systems engineering […]

Collaboration between Simulated Model and External System: Controlling LEGO Mindstorms with Cameo Simulation Toolkit

This paper shows the use of opaque behaviors containing JavaScripts to enable the communications between the simulated model of the controller and the external device, which is LEGO Mindstorms configured as ShooterBot. The controller model has been designed with MagicDraw SysML plugin and will be executed by Cameo Simulation Toolkit. During model execution, the mock-up […]
