Essential MBSE + SysML Applied™: Tool-Independent edition

COURSE ID: WS-LSYSE-TI
DESCRIPTION: This introductory SysML workshop provides students with a solid foundation for applying Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) principles and best practices with SysML, the industry standard visual modeling language for systems engineering applications. The workshop teaches students how to solve practical problems using all SysML diagram types and Allocation Tables. Learning modules are punctuated with frequent Q&A sessions and hands-on practice exercises.

This SysML 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.
VENUE: Available Onsite or Online.
DURATION: 3-5 days (= 21-35 training hours; length depends upon optional learning modules selected)
AUDIENCE: Systems engineers, system architects, software architects/engineers/developers, project managers, and others who want to learn how the SysML can improve how they architect, analyze, design, and manage complex systems will benefit from this workshop.
PREREQUISITES: Systems or software engineering experience in building large and/or complex systems. No other experience or prior training is required.
COURSE AUTHOR & CHIEF INSTRUCTOR: Cris Kobryn is the Founder of PivotPoint Technology and is an internationally recognized expert in architecture modeling languages (UML, SysML, BPMN), enterprise architecture frameworks (DoDAF, UPDM, TOGAF), and Model-Based Systems Engineering tools. Cris has been architecting and designing distributed computer systems for three decades, and is known for successfully leading the UML 1.x, UML 2.0, and SysML international standardization teams. Recently he designed the CyberML™ (Cyber Modeling Language™) to precisely specify Agile enterprise architectures that are scalable and cybersecure. You can learn more about Cris's qualifications as a Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) and Agile Architecture expert on his corporate bio page...
LEARNING OBJECTIVES
• What is Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) and how does SysML enable it?
• SysML’s basic and advanced constructs for modeling requirements, structure, and behavior (includes all nine SysML diagrams + Allocation Tables)
• How SysML can specify large, complex system architectures and the full System Development Life Cycle (SDLC)
• How to trace Requirements and perform Verification & Validation (V&V) on a SysML model
• Practical guidelines for specifying correct, complete, clear, concise, and consistent models
• How you can customize SysML for specific domains, such as aerospace-defense, manufacturing, and communications.
• How SysML work artifacts can be used with Model-Based Systems Engineering processes
• How to select SysML tools and methods
• How to draw SysML diagrams, simulate/execute SysML diagrams, and generate reports using a selected SysML tool: [Optional; for a list of SysML workshops customized for popular SysML tools check out the Tool Training section.]
• How to plan your transition to a MBSE approach
• How to learn more about MBSE and SysML modeling

COURSE SYLLABUS: All Essential MBSE + SysML Applied: Tool Independent edition workshops must include MBSE + SYSML: BASIC and MBSE + SYSML: INTERMEDIATE learning modules.

MBSE + SYSML: MODELING TOOL EVALUATION TECHNIQUES [Module# LS111-TI]
This learning module is popular among MBSE teams who are evaluating SysML-compliant tools for their MBSE projects. The module functions as hands-on laboratory for evaluating popular SysML modeling tools using a pragmatic process that can be tailored for your team and project. The default SysML modeling tools used to illustrate the evaluation techniques are: Sparx Enterprise Architect + SysML plugin, MagicDraw + SysML plugin, and UModel. Other SysML modeling tools may be substituted on request subject to trial license availability, including, but not limited to, Astah SysML, Astah SysML, Visual Paradigm, and Rational Rhapsody Designer.
Topics
• Specifying SysML modeling tool evaluation objectives and requirements
• Defining SysML modeling tool selection criteria
• Assigning relative weights to SysML modeling tool selection criteria
• Identifying candidate SysML modeling tools
• Testing candidate SysML modeling tools
• Finalizing the best choice for your team and project
Duration: 1 or 2 Day Version [This learning module is available in both a 1-day and a 2-day version, where the length depends upon the number of SysML modeling tools being evaluated (usually between 3-5) and how much guidance the MBSE team needs.]

MBSE + SYSML: PROJECT PRACTICUM [Module# LS121]
The project practicum provides an opportunity to apply SysML modeling principles and best practices to solve project modeling problems in a creative and supervised workshop environment. The practicum can be used to facilitate:
• MBSE/SysML model peer reviews
• MBSE/SysML model revisions and extreme makeovers
• Selected sdvanced MBSE/SysML modeling tool techniques including, but not limited to, behavioral model simulation, automated code generation, automated document generation, etc.
Students can identify project modeling problems in advance, or Instructor will work with students to identify them.

: This learning module can be tailored for popular SysML-compliant modeling tools, including Sparx Enterprise Architect, MagicDraw, Visual Paradigm, UModel, and Astah SysML. Other SysML-compliant modeling tools available on request. Contact us for details.
