The MagicGrid Book of Knowledge focuses on how practitioners implement MBSE. MagicGrid has been developed to provide a framework that can be easily adopted, implemented, and modified to grow with your modeling and systems engineering practice. This book teaches readers how to use No Magic software to design and optimize the systems and products of today and tomorrow.
Why this book?
Any theory needs practice. An approach becomes useful when it is provided in company with comprehensive instructions on how to use it in practice. The MagicGrid approach for MBSE by No Magic is no exception to this rule. This was the main reason for writing the book.
So this book is for you, if you’re new at MBSE or seek to learn a new MBSE approach. This book is for you, if you wish to learn how to use No Magic software for MBSE in combination with SysML and the new MBSE approach. This book is for you, if you go for comprehensive instructions, illustrated by the case study of modeling an easy-to-understand real-world system.
The book is easier to read if you are familiar with UML/SysML and basic concepts of No Magic software for MBSE; that is, Cameo Systems Modeler or MagicDraw with the SysML plugin installed on the top, generally referred to as the modeling tool.
