The Importance of Architecting our Modeling Environment

Systems engineers and systems architects have many architectures of which they need to be aware: there’s the architecture of the system-of-interest (or system under design), the architecture of the larger system in which the system-of-interest must operate (the context system), and the architecture of the enabling system (the enterprise or …

Modeling SysML Activities in GENESYS

Modeling behavior in SysML can be painstaking and difficult to communicate to a broad range of stakeholders. Fortunately, GENESYS makes it easy to use SysML constructs in a way that facilitates a comprehensive and consistent behavioral model and makes it easier to discuss with a broad range of stakeholders. What …

The most alert and knowledgeable readers will have already noticed a contradiction in the title. While “control” is a traditional engineering concept and focus, its meaning in the realm of complexity can best be described as “eroded.” Even that is probably a generous description. A more accurate title statement would …
