Capella in action (4d) – Paris (English!)

Cet article parle de : ,

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 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 Capella tool (inside 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).

Duration:

4 days

Audience:

Project managers, architects, system engineers,
wishing to learn how to use efficiently the Capella tool

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!

MBSE ‘Remote’ Training Sessions in May

Cet article parle de : , , , ,

As mentioned in a previous post, PRFC switches its MBSE Training offer to remote sessions throughout the confinement period and until the summer. Do not hesitate to contact us for any intra-company training quote.

For the month of May, we are organizing three one-day MBSE introductory sessions.

One of them will be conducted in English:

MBSE remote Training with PRFC!

Cet article parle de : , , , ,

In this period of confinement and teleworking, the training activity is still relevant, and even more so!

PRFC offers you to carry out remotely all the MBSE training courses corresponding to the new Training Offer for 2020.

For sessions without tool manipulation, arranged under the categories:

  • Seminar ‘Introduction’ in 1 day;
  • Workshop ‘Through practice’ in 2 days;

We will continue to offer them on an inter-company basis, thanks to platforms like zoom or Teams.

Thus, the inter-company session of April 21 concerning the one-day training: MBSE with Arcadia is maintained and will be moderated remotely by Pascal Roques (in French).

Another session will be conducted in English on April 30 by Pascal Roques.

For intra-company sessions, we also offer to carry them out remotely via your preferred platform. Regarding the longer training sessions with tools on Capella and SysML with EA or CSM, they will be run in smaller groups, to ensure sufficient interactivity when handling modeling tools.

Intra-company scheduling can also be much more flexible, since we will plan with you a number of 3.5-hour sessions, not necessarily consecutive, depending on the needs of each client and the requirements of the participants

Do not hesitate to contact us to define together the most suitable modern training solution possible!

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 wishes you the best for 2019, with the implementation of an effective MBSapproach!

Let us do a quick review of 2018 from our side.

2019 seems to start on the same basis with already several Arcadia / Capella courses scheduled on customer site in France, Germany and the United Kingdom …

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…

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:
