Modern systems, from automobiles, consumer electronics, to network-centric defense systems are becoming more complex and increasingly contain larger proportions of software. These changes drive the need for a formal modeling language for systems and improved methods of communication between system and software engineers. This is what OMG SysMLTM is all about.
What is OMG SysMLTM?
SysML is a graphical modeling language which is based on the OMG’s Unified Modeling Language (UML). SysML supports modeling of a broad range of systems including hardware, software, data, personnel, procedures and facilities. SysML is a key enabler of Model-Driven Systems Engineering and is supported by the International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE).
EmbeddedPlus’ SysML Toolkit is an add-in product to the IBM RSDP. It provides SysML language support and related features to IBM Rational Software Modeler/Architect (RSM/RSA) and Rational Systems Developer (RSD).
