Summer Remote Session of “Capella in Action”!

Cet article parle de : , , , ,

If you don’t speak French, or do not want to travel to Toulouse ;-), but you still wish to get trained on Arcadia/Capella, a remote session in English is scheduled from August 18 to 21. It will consist of 7 sessions of 3,5 hours (9:30-13:00; 14:00 -17:30) from Tuesday to Friday morning, through the zoom platform. But take care, there are already only 2 places left …

We take this opportunity to offer a discounted summer rate: €1,990 instead of €2,390 for the complete training. Note: the second registrant from the same company benefits from an even lower price at €1,690 instead of €1,990.

Launch of the PRFC YouTube channel on MBSE!

Cet article parle de : , , , ,

As noted in a previous post, PRFC switched its MBSE training offer into remote sessions throughout the confinement period and until summer.

To continue in this direction, next to videos in French, we have just published a first public video in English on the brand new PRFC YouTube channel:

This video (and future ones) is a short extract from a one-day training course, and prefigures the library of e-learning modules that we are going to produce.

They will be supplemented with quizzes, crosswords, etc. which will be available to PRFC customers.

In short, our ambition is to build a complete ‘blended-learning’ offer on MBSE around Arcadia / Capella and SysML in the coming months …

Stay tuned and subscribe!

MODELS 2019

Cet article parle de : , , ,

This is (more or less) back to school ! 🙂

And it starts strong with the MODELS conference to be held this year in the Center of Munich from September 15 to 20, with a very attractive program.

Last year, we were in Copenhagen in October, with already a program less academic than in previous years, in particular:

This year, there will be an entire day dedicated to Capella, organized by Obeo and Thales, on September 16: the Capella Day Munich 2019!

It will be a unique opportunity to meet industrial users (Framatome, RATP, etc.), tool vendors (Siemens PLM Software, Artal, pure-systems, the Reuse Company, etc.), as well as the best experts on the subject: not to miss…

Germany is increasingly involved in the MBSE since the previous Capella Day had already taken place in Stuttgart in March 2018.

And there will also be two industrial days, the first dedicated to the automotive sector (Germany requires …), the second more general.

PRFC will of course give you a detailed account of the highlights of this conference: stay tuned!

Update of the Clock Radio Capella Model (start)

During my SysML trainings, I have been using for several years now a simple example of a system: the Clock Radio. This is even the main example of my SysML introductory book in French, published by Eyrolles in 2013.

As part of the Clarity project, it seemed natural to do the same exercise with Capella using the Arcadia approach and concepts. I published in 2015 a first version of the model (with Capella 1.0) where I concentrated on the System Analysis level, trying to illustrate the main types of diagrams, but also ensuring the traceability with the operational need expressed in Operational Analysis. Then a second version of the model, with the Logical Architecture level. And finally a third version of the model with the Physical Architecture level and a small example of Viewpoint: Basic Price.

It was high time to update this model, trying to illustrate the new features provided by Capella 1.2.1 and now Capella 1.3.

The first version of the new model is downloadable here. It mainly contains the System Analysis level, because the operational need is very simple 😉 You will find examples of SMCB, SAB, SCDB, SES, SMSM, with several variations of each.

The progressive construction of the model is presented in a small explanatory document. The model and its companion document will be progressively completed with a Logical Architecture level, a Physical Architecture level, then the use of the Requirements add-on and of Property Values ​​…

An example of Exchange Scenario Diagram that was not possible before Capella 1.2.1 is given below. This is a scenario showing how two instances of the same User actor can interact with the Clock Radio.

PRFC was at the MODELS 2018 conference in Copenhagen

Cet article parle de : , , , ,

PRFC had the pleasure of participating once again in the annual MODELS conference (cf. St Malo in 2016) organized this year in the beautiful city of Copenhagen.

20 years already that the first edition, called UML’98, was held in Mulhouse, organized by Pierre-Alain Muller!

To note the significantly more important part of industrial participants than in the past, which is a very good sign for a conference on modeling!

I was mostly interested in the Model-Based Systems Engineering Meeting and in the Industry Day.

The MBSE Meeting started with a very interesting keynote of Ed Seidewitz: SysML v2 and MBSE: The next ten years, Basically the main problem of SysML is its direct filiation with UML… Room for Arcadia/Capella:-)

Then we had a large number of industrial presentations on the MBSE Adoption Challenges:

      

      

The next day, a lot of people in the big Amphi for The Industry Day with some well-known presenters:

As always, diverse and rewarding encounters and an appointment made in September next year at Munich for MODELS 2019!

A new training course: “Capella Reader”!

Cet article parle de : , , ,

I regularly get requests for Capella trainings that would be shorter than the standard curriculum, for people who will not directly work with the tool on the creation of models, but rather as readers of diagrams made by others.

This may be the case for a client working with a contractor that uses Capella, who wishes to understand well diagrams of both Operational and System Analysis levels which are provided to him/her, in order to collaborate efficiently with the contractor. Or the case of a project leader whose architects and system engineers use Capella on a daily basis, and who must validate diagrams done on the project at all Arcadia levels. Or for a specialty engineer who must understand and leverage Physical Architecture diagrams and maybe Logical ones too.

If you are in one of these cases, this new 2-day training is made for you!

Standard content is possibly ajustable according to Arcadia levels concerned and the types of diagrams you’ll need to master.

Do not hesitate to contact us for any special needs and we’ll forward you a customized offer…

CapellaDay 2018 in Stuttgart

Cet article parle de : , , , , , ,

PRFC is proud to have been among the speakers of the first Capella Day in Germany!

This One-day conference on the open MBSE solution Capella took place in Stuttgart, more precisely at Thales premises in Ditzingen, on Tuesday 13th March 2018. It attracted more than 60 participants from various companies, mostly from Germany.

The program gathered both Thales gurus Stéphane Bonnet (Capella Design Authority) and Jean-Luc Voirin (Arcadia father and book author), as well as end-users in ArianeGroup and Thales Deutschland, and tools & service providers (Obeo, Artal, pure::systems and PRFC). The Eclipse Foundation was also present to promote the Capella Industry Consortium

The slides I presented: Guide to Arcadia and Capella successful adoption are available here.

An expanded MBSE training offer for 2018!

Cet article parle de : , , , , ,
The MBSE training offer will become richer and more modular in 2018, distinguishing better from one side ‘Language & Method’, and the other ‘Tool’, with two major streams:
The general scheme is as follows:
  • MBSE with XX training contains 66% theory and 33% group reflection on a case study (without tool)
  • YY in Action training contains instead 75% of practice (with a modeling tool) and 25% of theory illustrated with examples

MBSE with XX training is a strongly recommended prerequisite of the corresponding training YY in Action.

 

This new scheme will enable to gradually enrich the offer with new modules, such as:

 

 

 

or:
