Modeling SysML Interactions in GENESYS

In last month’s blog, Modeling SysML Activities in GENESYS, I discussed how to model behavior using activity diagrams. What, though, are interactions? Interactions are a UML concept brought over into SysML that can be used as an alternative approach for modeling behavior in SysML. Interactions are distinct from activities and …

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 …

Managing Functional Requirements with GENESYS

Requirements management in GENESYS differs from approaches used by other systems engineering tools, modeling or architecture tools, and databases. In keeping with academic and INCOSE processes, GENESYS leverages the full power of MBSE for requirements management using its systems metamodel as a guide. (See: What is the Difference Between a …

Understanding Interfaces

We’re told risk is at the interface. But, the term “interface” conflates many ideas, and we often focus on the wrong problem. To correct that, we should consider three perspectives on connectivity: logical connectivity, physical connectivity, and behavioral connectivity. Allow me to demonstrate with an example of a multi-point message …
