Systems Modelling Language (SysML) is a tailored version of the unified modelling language (UML) that meets the needs of today's systems engineering professionals and engineers. It supports the specification, analysis, design, verification and validation of a broad range of systems and systems-of-systems, including hardware, software, information, personnel, procedures, and facilities in a graphical notation.
SysML for Systems Engineering: A model-based approach provides a comprehensive overview on how to implement SysML and Model-based Systems Engineering (MBSE) in an organisation in order to model real projects effectively and efficiently. Topics covered include approach and concepts; SysML notation; diagramming guidelines; process and requirements modelling with MBSE; architectures and architectural frameworks with MBSE; value chain modelling; deploying MBSE; the benefits of MBSE; the 'people', the 'process' and the 'tool'; model structure and management; and model maturity. A detailed case study is included to illustrate the key concepts.
Fully updated and revised to reflect the latest version of the standard (SysML 1.5, released in May 2017), this new edition also includes new chapters on the benefits of MBSE, model management, model maturity and value chain modelling.
