THURSDAY, APRIL 16 – Demo & Discussion-based Software Training

We will be offering two concurrent training courses. Attendees are encouraged to select their preferred track and adhere to it for the duration of the day. Abstracts are below to provide additional detail and set attendees' expectations.

Introduction to Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) with SysML
Presented by Sandy Friedenthal, SAF Consulting: This 1/2 day tutorial introduces the participants to MBSE with SysML by highlighting some of the system modeling fundamentals, walking through a simple example of a system model, and then introducing some key SysML language concepts. The tutorial then describes an MBSE methodology to perform systems engineering activities including requirements analysis and architecture design using the system model to enable capture, communication, and analysis of the system specification and design.

Taking ModelCenter to the Cloud
Presented by Dr. J. Simmons and the Phoenix Integration Engineering Services Team: This 1 day workshop pulls back the curtain on Tuesday's product demonstration, revealing how the Phoenix Integration team built and published the example workflow to ModelCenter's cloud environment. The workshop begins with tutorials on creating the workflow in ModelCenter Integrate and analyzing the design space in ModelCenter Explore. The activities then shift focus to the cloud to share the workflow with the larger engineering community and other stakeholders. The cloud based tutorials cover publishing and executing the workflow using the standard ModelCenter Cloud interface and conclude with the installation of a custom interface.
