A Practical Guide to SysML
The Systems Modeling Language
Sanford Friedenthal, Alan Moore, Rick Steiner
SysML is the new industry-standard language designed specifically to support modern systems engineering. I cannot imagine a better way to learn SysML than to read about it from the masters: Friedenthal, Moore, and Steiner led the design of this important new language and now cap that effort with this comprehensive and highly readable guide for both novices and experts.
Bran Selic, Malina Software Corporation
This book is just the ticket you need to get started on the road to adopting standards-based, model-based systems engineering (MBSE) methods. The authors have done an outstanding job in providing detailed coverage of the SysML language and semantics supported through worked examples.
Jeff Estefan, Principal Engineer, NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory
The authors of this book have been involved in SysML development since its inception, and have the understanding necessary to explain it clearly. In particular, the activity diagrams chapter accurately and concisely describes the SysML extensions to UML for functional flow modeling.
Conrad Bock, OMG Lead for Activity Modeling in SysML
- Authoritative and comprehensive guide to understanding and implementing SysML
- A quick reference guide, including language descriptions and practical examples
- Application of model-based methodologies to solve complex system problems
- Guidance on transitioning to model-based systems engineering using SysML
- Preparation guide for OMG Certified Systems Modeling Professional (OCSMP)
Until now, little consolidated information has been available regarding SysML. However, this book changes all that! It provides new users with a comprehensive guide to SysML, including a full description of the language and examples that demonstrate the power of the language. . Additionally, model-based systems engineering methodologies show how to use the language to solve complex systems problems. The book also provides the foundations needed to prepare for the OCSMP certification exams.
About the Authors
Sanford Friedenthal has been an advocate for model-based systems engineering and a leader of the industry team that developed SysML from its inception through its adoption by the OMG. He led the model-based systems development initiative at Lockheed Martin to deploy model-based methods with SysML on to programs.
Alan Moore is an Architecture Modeling Specialist at The Math Works. He has extensive experience in the development of real-time and object-oriented methodologies and their application. Alan was co-chair of the OMG’s Real-time Analysis and Design Working Group and served as the language architect during the development of SysML.
Rick Steiner is an Engineering Fellow at Raytheon. He has been a key contributor to the definition and development of the SysML specification, particularly in the area of allocation and requirements.
