Advanced MBSE + SysML Applied™: Tool-Independent edition

COURSE ID: WS-LSYSA-TI
DESCRIPTION: This advanced SysML workshop, which builds on the Essential SysML Applied workshop, explains how to apply advanced SysML modeling techniques to improve the precision, scalability, and clarity of your enterprise system architectures. The advanced modeling topics include recursive design, architecture patterns, cost/performance trade studies, automating Verification & Validation (V&V), model simulation and execution, system architectures, and large-scale model management. Learning modules are punctuated with frequent Q&A sessions and hands-on practice exercises.

This workshop edition is tool-independent, and teaches the SysML modeling language using whiteboards for hands-on practice sessions, without using any tool-specific techniques. Students who seek integrated modeling tool training may also choose versions of this workshop that are customized for popular SysML modeling tools.

Active Learning Approach & Training Customization Options

HANDS-ON, PROJECT-BASED LEARNING APPROACH: Students actively explore how MBSE + SysML modeling techniques can solve pragmatic real-world problems that they choose to work on during their practice exercises. All learning modules are punctuated with frequent Q&A sessions and hands-on practice exercises.
TOOL-INDEPENDENT & TOOL-CUSTOMIZED VERSIONS: The MBSE + SysML training workshop is available in both tool-independent and tool-customized versions. The tool-independent version uses white boards for practice exercises, whereas the tool-customized version supports popular SysML-compliant tools (Sparx Enterprise Architect, MagicDraw; other modeling tools available on request).
CUSTOMIZATIONS FOR TEAMS & PROJECTS: All training is based on flexible learning modules that can be mixed-and-matched to tailor your hands-on training for your team and project.
COMPLETION & PERFORMANCE-BASED CERTIFICATIONS AVAILABLE: Upon request we offer both Completion Certification and Performance-Based Certification for all Model-Based Engineering training. We can also help you prepare for OMG OCSMP™ Certification. Contact us for details.
DURATION: 2-5 days (= 14-35 training hours; length depends upon optional learning modules selected)
VENUE: Available Onsite or Online.
AUDIENCE: Systems Engineers, System Architects, Software Architects, Software Engineers, Software Developers, Business Analysts, Solution Architects, Project Managers, and others who want to learn how the SysML 2 can improve how they architect, analyze, design, and manage complex systems will benefit from this workshop.
PREREQUISITES: Successful completion of Essential MBSE + SysML Applied™ or equivalent SysML 2 training.
