SysML Distilled:A Brief Guide to the Systems Modeling Language
The Systems Modeling Language (SysML) extends UML with powerful systems engineering capabilities for modeling a wider spectrum of systems and capturing all aspects of a systems design. SysML Distilled is the first clear, concise guide for everyone who wants to start creating effective SysML models. (Drawing on his pioneering experience at Lockheed Martin and NASA, Lenny Delligatti illuminates SysMLs core components and provides practical advice to help you create good models and good designs. Delligatti begins with an easy-to-understand overview of Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) and an explanation of how SysML enables effective system specification, analysis, design, optimization, verification, and validation. Next, he shows how to use all nine types of SysML diagrams, even if you have no previous experience with modeling languages. A case study running through the text demonstrates the use of SysML in modeling a complex, real-world sociotechnical system. Modeled after Martin Fowlers classic UML Distilled, Delligattis indispensable guide quickly teaches you what you need to know to get started and helps you deepen your knowledge incrementally as the need arises.
