SysML 101 - Model-Based Engineering Fundamentals: Understanding SysML Models

Course Description

Get started in the context of model-based engineering (MBE) in general and model-based systems engineering (MBSE) in particular. Learn the essentials of OMGTM SysML, a general-purpose modeling language for developing complex systems composed of hardware, software, information, personnel, procedures and/or facilities. We cover key concepts in a tool-independent manner with a focus on how to read and understand SysML models that other people have created.
