3/3/2006 - I-Logix announced that the Object Management Group (OMG) has released the latest version of the Systems Modeling Language (SysML) draft standard, SysML version .99. Owing to Logix's leadership and contributions from leading toolmakers and systems engineers in the SysML Merge Team, the committee created the v.99 substantially based on the v.98 specification.
Until the formation of the SysML Merge Team, there were two competing submissions for SysML: The v.98 specification that the v.99 version is largely based on, and a submission from the SysML Partners. The SysML Partners' submission is no longer under consideration by the OMG. A final task force scheduled for April 2006 is expected to make minor adjustments to v.99, approving SysML version 1.0 with very few changes.
A longstanding contributor to the OMG, I-Logix supports the latest SysML standard in the company's market leading Model-Driven Development (MDD) environment, Rhapsody. The Rhapsody modeling environment now supports all SysML v.99 diagrams and will be fully compliant with the SysML version 1.0 specification when it is released. A free Rhapsody trial download is now available here.
"I-Logix is deeply committed to crafting a SysML standard that will meet the user's expectations for a comprehensive systems modeling language, and our continued efforts and leadership on the SysML Merge Team have resulted in the latest v.99 specifications," Neeraj Chandra, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Corporate Development, said. "Our flagship Rhapsody MDD environment supports all SysML v.99 diagrams, and we are fully prepared to offer SysML version 1.0 compliance when the standard is passed by the OMG."
