AHP uses a 9-point scale to evaluate a large number of alternative solutions against each other with respect to a single criterion at a time. It accommodates …

Modeling SysML Blocks in GENESYS: Part II

This week I’ll continue the discussion and describe how GENESYS deals with the SysML relationships of composition, references, generalization, and dependencies on a Block Definition Diagram, or BDD. Blocks …
