MBSE with SysML and Eclipse Papyrus

About the Book

This book is a hands-on modeling guide following the Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) paradigm using the open-source tool Eclipse Papyrus and the Systems Modeling Language (SysML).

The book is written for anyone who is interested in learning about MBSE, from beginners to experienced practitioners. It provides an introduction to the fundamental concepts and principles of systems engineering, modeling, and MBSE before focusing on practical applications.

A simple modeling methodology following the MBSE paradigm is used to illustrate how Eclipse Papyrus and SysML can be used to build a model that covers the most important aspects of a system, such as requirements, architecture, and behavior. The book provides step-by-step tutorials on a continuous case study to walk readers through the process of creating a SysML model from scratch and empower them to grasp the concepts and apply them to their projects quickly.
