Capella in Action (4 days)

This in-depth practical training will allow you to discover the ins and outs of the Capella tool and its associated modeling language, through a complete case study carried out using the Arcadia method.

Systems engineers have been making use of modeling techniques for a long time. Based on both Functional Analysis and the SysML language, Arcadia (Architecture Analysis and Design Integrated Approach) is a structured engineering method aimed at defining and validating the architecture of complex systems. After having tested the method internally, and developed an accompanying workbench, Thales has recently decided to make it public, through the Capella tool (inside the Polarsys project of the Eclipse community).

This in-depth practical training will enable you to discover the ins and outs of the Arcadia (Architecture Analysis and Design Integrated Approach) method and its associated modeling language. We will mostly focus on the benefits of a workbench adapted to the method, through a complete case study performed with the open source Capella tool. A language, an approach, a tool: these are the three pillars needed for the success of the Model Based Systems Engineering (MBSE).
