Arcadia in Practice (2 days)

This intermediate training will enable you to discover the ins and outs of the Arcadia method and its specific modeling language, through a guided case study.

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 Model Based Systems 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 decided to make it public, through the open-source Capella tool (inside the Eclipse community).

This intermediate training will enable you to discover the ins and outs of the Arcadia method and its specific modeling language, through a guided case study. We will also focus on the benefits of a workbench adapted to the method, through examples and demonstrations of the associated Capella tool. A language, an approach, a tool: these are the three pillars needed for the success of the Model Based Systems Engineering (MBSE).
