03:00 PM GMT, 10:00 AM CDT, 11:00 AM EDT, 04:00 PM CET
Aujourd'hui, l'ingénierie dirigée par les modèles, ou Model Based System Engineering (MBSE), est pleinement supportée par la notation SysML (Systems Modeling Language).

Cependant SysML est ni un cadre d'architecture, ni une méthode. Cela ouvre des discussions sur la façon de structurer le modèle, quels diagrammes construire, quels artefacts sont à livrer et dans quel ordre. Chaque entreprise gère cette problématique différemment. Il est primordial de conserver la capacité à échanger, la capacité de communiquer avec d'autres équipes, tout en minimisant les frais généraux de personnalisation des outils et en optimisant le besoin en formations spécifiques. En outre, les modèles peuvent devenir difficiles à intégrer et à réutiliser.

Dans cette session, nous analyserons de manière pragmatique quelques bonnes pratiques puis les visualiserons par des exemples dans l'outil Cameo Systems Modeler.

In English

Nowadays MBSE is enabled by Systems Modeling Language (SysML). However SysML is neither an architecture framework nor a method. This opens discussions of how to structure the model, what views to build, which artifacts to deliver and in what sequence. Every company deals with this issue differently. Organizations not complying with the standardized approach end up having differently structured models with different set of views. It results in the loss of capability to inter-exchange, loss of capability to communicate with other teams, overhead in tool customization, and specific trainings need. Moreover, the models become impossible to integrate and reuse.
In this session, we will analyze certain good practices and demonstrate them by examples in the Cameo Systems Modeler tool.

The session demonstrates
  • Les pièges les plus couramment rencontrés en MBSE : comment les éviter ?
  • Rappel des principaux concepts et diagrammes SysML
  • Démonstration des liens entre éléments du modèle dans les différents points de vue
  • Visualisation d’une étude de cas de modélisation simple mais cohérente
 In English
  • Introduces MBSE pitfalls and explains how to avoid them
  • Explains major SysML concepts and diagrams
  • Shows how to trace model elements in different views
  • Shows a consistent modeling case study

The presentation takes about thirty minutes and the question-answer section – about five. The audience are able to submit questions in a written form throughout the webinar.

The session is hosted by Olivier Casse, Independent Consultant and Representative of SysML France Association.

Webinar 1 2016 - Moving from Documents to Models MBSE

Tuesday, 23 February 2016
03:00 PM GMT, 09:00 AM CST, 10:00 AM EST, 04:00 PM CET

Many organizations recognize the value of Model Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) as in the past they experienced a lot of pain in trying to engineer complex systems using documents, spreadsheets, and isolated diagrams. International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE) promote MBSE as the modern approach to Systems Engineering (SE) and they envision that MBSE will become a common practice and a synonym of SE by 2020. While organizations understand potential benefits of MBSE, they struggle in changing their engineering practices from document-based to model-based and establishing a strong modeling culture.

In this webinar, we will suggest an evolutionary process for adopting MBSE, which allows quick wins and minimizes risks. Furthermore, we will share some important lessons learned in supporting organizations on their journey to adopting MBSE, identify common pitfalls to be avoided, and provide recommendations for solving specific challenges such as establishing modeling framework, educating system engineers on modeling languages, methods, and tools, importing data from documents to models, using models to produce document artifacts for specific stakeholders, managing model quality, integrating modeling tool(s) into the overall chain of engineering tools, using models as organizational knowledge base and promoting collaborative approach to model creation, usage, and governance.

The session content is based on working experience of adopting MBSE in many global organizations representing different industries – automotive, aerospace, space, transportation, defense, medical devices, mobile devices, telecommunications and others. Be sure that you will get some new ideas and inspirations for your journey from documents to models!

The session demonstrates
  • Typical engineering practices (V models with documents, regulations, standards)
  • MBSE as promoted by INCOSE
  • MBSE infrastructure: language, approach, and tool
  • Common pitfalls to avoid
  • Evolutionary approach to adopting MBSE
  • Solving specific challenges
  • Recommendations for getting started

The presentation takes about fifty minutes and the question-answer section – about ten. The audience are able to submit questions in a written form throughout the webinar.

MBSE/PLE Webinar : Product Line Engineering Meets MBSE — the Best of Both Worlds MBSE

BigLever Software, Inc.
Thursday, 28 January 2016
9:00AM CST

Product Line Engineering (PLE) has emerged as a game-changing engineering paradigm for enabling significant gains in competitive advantage through the reduction of complexity, efficient management of variation, and automation of production across an entire product line portfolio. BigLever Software’s new generation PLE tools and methods enable a unified featured-based approach across the full lifecycle from portfolio planning, to systems and software engineering, product definition, manufacturing, sales, and service. By providing a “single source of feature truth”, PLE enables a holistic view into the feature variations for a product family — eliminating the need for different variant management mechanisms in multiple tools, facilitating better interoperability across teams, and improving cross-functional alignment between engineering and operational roles.

No Magic and BigLever have joined forces to bring MagicDraw into the PLE Ecosystem, and support the integration of featured-based PLE and MBSE with the No Magic MagicDraw/BigLever Software Gears Bridge™. This webinar will explore the engineering and business impact, and key benefits, of combining PLE’s innovative featured-based variation management capabilities with the powerful visualization, analysis, verification, and validation capabilities of MBSE.

Participants will gain insight into:

  • How integrated MBSE and PLE enables improved communication and collaboration; greater production efficiency, increased product quality, and risk reduction.
  • The ability of MagicDraw to operate seamlessly, efficiently, and effectively as part of the unified PLE lifecycle toolsets used by a growing number of systems engineering organizations.
  • How to use Gears PLE concepts and constructs as first-class systems engineering mechanisms for managing product line diversity in MagicDraw models, as a highly scalable alternative to traditional clone-and-own approaches.
