1. New Features

1.1. Inheritance and aggregation of relationships

With this version, No Magic introduces the enhanced analysis of inheritance and aggregation. The newly created derived properties allow for visualizing inherited or aggregated relationships.

Inheritance of relations 

NOTE: The inherited relationships are not created in the model.

Derived Properties for Inheritance:

Derived Property Element and its specializations Inherited relationships
Exhibits Capability With Inherited Node Exhibits
Capability Of Performer
Exhibits Capability With Inherited System Resource Exhibits
Capability Of Performer
Exhibits Capability With Inherited Enterprise Phase Exhibits
Capability Of Performer
Implements With Inherited System Resource Implements
Performs Operational Activity With Inherited Node Is Capable of Performing
Activity Performed By Performer
Performs Function With Inherited System Resource Is Capable of Performing
Activity Performed By Performer
Exposes With Inherited Capability Expose
Desired Effect With Inherited Desirer Desired Effect

 

NOTE: The aggregated relationships are not created in the model.

Derived Properties for Aggregation:

Exposes With Aggregated Capability Expose
Desired Effect With Aggregated Desirer Desired Effect
Implements With Aggregated Function Implements
Implements With Aggregated Service Function Implements

1.2. A new approach to SV-8 / SvcV-8 diagrams

This version presents new approach to the SV-8 / SvcV-8 diagrams. With the Gantt chart representation of the SV-8 / SvcV-8 diagrams, you can now easily analyze:

  • the whole lifecycle of the resource
  • the changes of the resource Version of Configurations over time

1.3. Aggregation / composition of exchanges

Starting with this version, the Operational Exchanges and Resource Interactions are aggregated / composed.

You will be able to see the aggregated / composed exchanges in:

  • Operational Exchange or Resource Interaction Manager
  • Role-based tables OV-3, NOV-3, SV-6, NSV-6, and SvcV-6

2. Enhancements

2.1. Manage your capability structure easily

With this version, CV-3, StV-3, and NCV-3 diagrams have been enhanced. These enhancements consist of

  • the ability delete sub capabilities from the chart
  • the ability to display the  sub capabilities deleted from the chart
  • the ability to display all capabilities deleted from the chart

2.2. Try out the newly enhanced SysML Compliance

The SysML compliance for the activity based diagrams has been enhanced. The dashed Control Flows are now available when the SysML compliance mode is turned on.

2.3. Use Default Measurement values effectively

Define the default values in the specification of the Measurement Set and you will be able to use them when creating the Actual Property Sets. You can use the default values with just one click of the Default Value button in the element Specification window.

2.4. Reuse recommended Actual Property Set values

When creating a Node Role or Resource Role, you can quickly reuse the Measurement Sets of their type (Node or System Resource). For your convenience, the information about the recommended Actual Measurement Sets displays in the Specification window of an element for which you are creating the Actual Measurement Set.

2.5. Experience a quicker way of creating swimlanes

This version introduces you the ability of creating or appending swimlanes by dragging elements from the Containment tree.

Creating swimlanes and setting representative elements will be more convenient and quicker now. Simply drag one or several elements (for example, node, node role, system, project, actual person) from the Containment tree to the diagram and all elements will be represented by swimlanes. The partitions will be created for each of those elements.

You may also drag one or several elements to the existing swimlane. In that case, all elements will be represented by new swimlanes and partitions will be created for each of those elements.

Note that if you want to make the particular preferences, drag elements using the right mouse button. The shortcut menu will appear, where you will be able to select available actions or specify the location of new rows or columns.

2.6. Set the representative elements easily

The Select Swimlane Representatives dialog is a helping hand when creating swimlanes.

When you create a swimlane from the Diagram pallet in the diagram of the particular operational activity, the Select Swimlane Representatives dialog is displayed. This dialog gives you all available nodes and node roles related to that particular operational activity.

Note, that the same is valid when creating function flow diagrams. In that case, the dialog will present all available system resources and resource roles related to those functions.

2.7. Reuse information flows from read-only modules

With this version, No Magic introduces the ability to realize information flows from the read-only modules in your project using associations, connectors, messages, and control flows.

2.8. Modify your tables directly in the generated MS Word reports

From now on, your tables printed to the MS Word report become editable. You may also modify the report template and make your own preferences of what should print in the report.

2.9. Take a look at the Correctness Validation Rules

In the User Guide, you may find the detailed description of the Correctness Validation Rules. Please note, all validation rules have their own unique ID (for example, COR2001, COM2001).

2.10. Other enhancements

  • Coloring in predefined relation maps is now available. You will have the ability to change criteria colors.

relation map

  • All your newly created diagrams and some elements are named automatically. However, you will be able to change these names later.
