Modeling SysML Blocks in GENESYS: Part I

(Part II of this series is available here.) I regularly receive questions from customers wanting to apply GENESYS to their particular systems engineering challenges. Each one is different, and I always love learning about the situation and seeing if I can help. (Just a reminder: we are always here to …

MBSE: Simple, Complicated, or Complex?

After 15 years of practice, there is still a great deal of confusion surrounding model-based systems engineering – not only what MBSE is but also the difficulty of application. Some see MBSE as simple, the only possible way they could imagine engineering a system of any scale. Others perceive it …

Ingesting MBSE Data into GENESYS

The exchange of data between model-based systems engineering tools has been an issue for many years within the systems engineering community. Industry, the International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE), and Object Management Group (OMG) have all recognized this fact and have attempted to solve the exchange issue in many ways. …

Systems Thinking: Schemas, Metamodels, and MBSE

“Metamodel” and “schema” are terms that get thrown around when we talk about systems and modeling of systems. But what do they really mean? “Meta” comes from the Greek and literally means “above” or “beyond,” but has also come to mean “about” or “of,” so a metamodel is a model …
