Enhanced SysML Modeling Options

What’s new in SysML Modeling?

A huge update to the SysML technology making it one of the most compliant and easy-to-use implementations available today.

There have been literally hundreds of changes, modifications, and embellishments to the SysML technology. The result is an implementation that is highly compliant, and a user experience that will both delight and result in great productivity gains.

  • All diagrams are by default displayed in frames.
  • Revised property windows and toolboxes make working with all properties including, parts, ports, and pins much easier.
  • A rich set of patterns for every diagram type provides a starting point and reference model for novices and experts alike.
  • Element compartments are now highly configurable and SysML specific.
  • Parametric and Simulation have been significantly enhanced – from modeling to configuration to execution of Model Parametric Simulation.

Conformance Improvements Compared with Enterprise Architect 13

  • Classifier behavior has now been added and can be set via the Element Details property tab.
  • Behaviors have been updated to correctly display parameters when drawn within a compartment.
  • The casing on multiple compartment names conforms with the SysML1.5 specification.
  • Bound references can now display the binding path when displayed in a compartment.
  • All SysML elements can display the AllocateTo and AllocateFrom compartment.
  • UseCase Extends connector can display a condition by adding a constraint to the connector with the type ‘Condition’.
  • Ports on an Internal Block / Parametric Diagram can display compartments from their classifying object.
  • Port names can now be displayed within the Port if ‘Show Compartments’ is enabled.
  • Inherited properties will now display with the caret (^) symbol before the name.

Enterprise Architect 14 Perspective and Model Patterns Overview

This article will give an overview about Modelling Intent and Diagram features of Enterprise Architect 14 specifically new perspectives combined with impressive array of new model patterns which makes modelling efforts more productive in Enterprise Architect 14.

Enterprise Architect 14

Perspective:

The Enhanced Perspective option in Enterprise Architect 14 is one of the options most beginners who look for in Sparx Enterprise Architect.  Set of modeling technologies will be shown based on user selected perspective. This keeps the Pattern selection, Diagram toolbox, Stereotype selection and new diagram windows minimal. This is one of the most expected features in upcoming release of Sparx Enterprise Architect 14.

Perspective

Pattern selection:

Setting the perspective to Whiteboard displays set of patterns available for whiteboard. This defeats MDG configuration in Sparx Enterprise Architect 13.5 and previous versions

 

Pattern selection

Diagram toolbox:

Setting the perspective brings the toolboxes relevant to technology selected in the perspective. In the below diagram User has selected BPMN perspective. On click of more tools icon displays toolboxes relevant to BPMN

Diagram toolbox

Stereotype selection:

Perspective not only reduces the options in patterns and diagram toolbox but also in stereotype selection option in an element. Setting perspective displays minimal set of profiles on stereotype selection window. In the below screenshot the profiles are listed in the dropdown based on the perspective selection

Stereotype selection

New diagram:

Perspective also affects new diagram selection option in Enterprise Architect 14. Adding a new diagram in Enterprise Architect 14 display minimal diagram types if any perspective set. In the below image BPMN and mind mapping diagrams are shown based on selected BPMN perspective

New diagram

Model Patterns:

Model Patterns

Enterprise Architect 14 Model Pattern looks very impressive than all its previous versions. The patterns listed in Model pattern window based on selected perspective. Also in Enterprise Architect 14 model pattern gives a brief note along with help files for each pattern.
