System Architecting with SysML
$1990 per person
The discipline of systems engineering (SE) is transforming, with much of the design information now captured in graphical models. System Modeling Language (SysML) is the primary tool used to create and retain this design information. Design information in SysML includes operational (stakeholder) definition, technical requirements, architectural analysis/structure, parametric definition, and test information, which together represent nearly the entirety of SE artifacts. An underlying database holds the SysML information so that data from one diagram appears synchronized on other diagrams. The benefits to the system architect are extensive.
This course shows how to architect and maintain a system definition using SysML. The course is filled with graphic examples from SysML models, but it is unlike other SysML courses in that the spotlight is on the system architecting. Students do not work on a computer during class, so that they can focus on the concepts rather than on use of a specific software tool. The course flows through familiar SE processes while teaching how the SysML models and structures support and enhance each task. We cover every SE activity and every SysML diagram, from Use Case and Activity diagrams to define operations; through State Machine, Sequence and Parametric diagrams to define system requirements; to Block Definition, Internal Block, and Requirements diagrams to define architectural structure. By the completion of this course, you will be able to apply SysML effectively in your own work.
In addition to our complete course materials, students also receive a copy of the seminal textbook A Practical Guide to SysML by Friedenthal, Moore, and Steiner.
