SysML for Systems Engineering

This course is designed for systems engineers who are new to SysML. Delegates are taught how to create the core SysML diagram types to analyse requirements and create static and dynamic design models. Practical exercises help to reinforce the theory.
Duration: 3 days
Prerequisites: No prior SysML experience is required.
A background in systems engineering is helpful.
Equipment: For on-site delivery the customer should provide a suitable training room with a screen or projector to connect to our trainer's laptop and a whiteboard or flipchart. All exercises are completed on paper therefore no PCs or laptops are required.
For webinar delivery delegates require a PC or laptop with an Internet connection (a headset can be helpful). If you wish to test your environment join a test WebEx meeting:
Course Style: 50% theory, 50% practical.
Each module is accompanied by targeted exercises to allow delegates to apply the theory and become confident with new concepts and notation.
Delegate Handouts: Each delegate receives a folder containing all the course slides and comprehensive theory notes which form excellent reference material. Folders also contain exercises and suggested solutions. Following successful completion of the course each delegate receives a certificate.
Module Key: Teaches concepts and notation

  Teaches practical use of Enterprise Architect
             Covers BPMN, UML, SysML and/or ArchiMate
