Automated Requirements Verification using SysML

Presenter: Dr. Saulius Pavalkis

Abstract: Systems Modeling Language (SysML) is used to capture systems design as descriptive and analytical system models, which relate text requirements to the design and provide a baseline to support analysis and verification.This session will demonstrate how model of the system, expressed with sufficient precision, can be used to support early requirements validation and design verification, particularly when coupled with an execution and simulation environment. Additionally, we will show how to use test cases and associated verification procedures as combination of inspection, analysis, demonstration, and testing to verify that the designs satisfy the system requirements. The session demonstrates:
  • Representing text-based requirements in Cameo Systems Modeler
  • Requirements traceability, gap and coverage analysis
  • Refining and formalizing requirements
  • Selecting verification method
  • Defining test cases and analysis models
  • Performing automated requirements verification
  • Recording verification results, generating verification reports

Bio: Saulius Pavalkis is the Chief MBSE Solutions Architect at Dassault Systems (Former No Magic, Inc.). Saulius has 15 years of experience working on modeling solutions working as a consultant, trainer, PLM products integration manager, a former analyst in the R&D department core MagicDraw team.

Model Based Systems Engineering Interest Group November 17

Location: Allen, Tx. RSVP required. Send email to Yvonne and Barry to sign up. bpapke @ nomagic . com; yvonne_bijan @ hotmail . com
The agenda will be as follows:
Part 1 – Establish the Process
  • Conduct a group review of one section of the Handbook to establish the process and expectations.
  • Conduct an instructor led development of a model of the section we analyzed.
Part 2 – Prepare for Individual Team Activities
  • Provide instructions on how to install the tools and how license will be sent out along with a EULA for the project.
The Handbook section I propose to start with is Section 4.3 System Requirements Definition Process
