MBSE with Arcadia (1 day)

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 introductory training will enable you to discover the ins and outs of the Arcadia method and its specific modeling language. 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).

MBSE with SysML (1 day)​​

Systems engineers have been making use of modeling techniques for a long time. The best-known include the functional approaches SADT and SA/RT, which date from the 1980s, but were limited by their low power of expression. The Systems Engineering community therefore wanted to define a more comprehensive modeling language adapted to its common problems: SysML (Systems Modeling Language).

This introductory training will enable you to discover the ins and outs of the SysML modeling language. We will also focus on the need to define a modeling approach, adapted to the context of the company and the type of system to be studied. We will finally see what is the state of the art of SysML modeling tools. A language, an approach, a tool: these are the three pillars needed for the success of the Model Based Systems Engineering (MBSE).

SysML in Practice (2 days)

Model-based Systems Engineering (MBSE) offers significant opportunities for improving productivity and quality. This intermediate training will enable you to discover the ins and outs of the SysML modeling language. We will also focus on the need to define a modeling approach, adapted to the context of the company and the type of system to be studied.
 

Through a guided case study, starting from use case and requirements diagrams, you will discover the block diagrams for structural modeling of complex systems. You will then deepen the sequence diagram, the state diagram and activity diagram for dynamic modeling. You will also learn to use specific SysML diagrams, such as the requirements diagram and the parametric diagram, as well as the important concept of allocation.

SysML in action with CSM or EA (4 days)

Systems engineers have been using modeling techniques for decades. The best-known include the functional approaches SADT and SA/RT, which date from the 1980s, but were limited by their low power of expression. The Systems Engineering community therefore wanted to define a common modeling language adapted to its problems:  SysML (Systems Modeling Language).

This in-depth practical training will show you how to use efficiently the SysML modeling language. Through a case study starting with requirement and use case diagrams, you will discover then block diagrams for structural modeling of complex systems. You will deepen the sequence diagram, the state diagram and activity diagram for dynamic modeling. You will also learn to use specific SysML diagrams, such as the  parametric diagram, as well as the important concept of allocation.

We will mostly focus on the benefits of an efficient modeling tool, through a complete case study performed with Cameo Systems Modeler (NoMagic), or Enterprise Architect (Sparx). A language, an approach, a tool: these are the three pillars needed for the success of the Model Based Systems Engineering (MBSE).
