SysML Model Based Systems Engineering

ME 59700 / 3 Cr. (3 Class)

This course teaches applications of SysML to real life projects and businesses, in order to define, track and visualize various aspects of a system. The coursework is structured around the Object Modeling Group’s SysML used in modeling systems. The Cameo Systems Modeler will be used to for advanced features of engineering analysis – design decision evaluation and requirements verification, check model consistency and track design progress. Several case studies from healthcare and engineering disciplines are studied.
