Chapter Meeting June 9

Early System V&V Using SysML Simulation by Saulius (Saul) Pavalkis, Phd

Location: Virtual (see chapter newsletter for connection information)

Abstract: Webinar demonstrates recent trends in system model execution with SysML to perform early validation and latter architecture and design verification. We will demonstrate system simulation, automated requirements verification, test cases specification and automated execution. We will use Cameo Simulation Toolkit which is integrating pluggable evaluation engines and standards to enable out of the box system model execution and analysis.

NASA perspective on recent trends in executable models: “This is an important development since it requires minimal configuration, can be used earlier in the lifecycle and can evolve as the design matures.”

Full hands-on one day tutorial on system simulation will be provided at MBSE Cyber Experience Symposium at Allen Texas. Reserve your spot at

NTX Meeting: Marguerite Bryan on Hardware-Inclusive DevOps: Applying DevOps Principles and Practices to Cyber-Physical System Engineering

All are welcome to join us for presentations on a variety of SE topics. We meet online and in various locations throughout DFW.

Chapter Meeting - December 10

Hardware-Inclusive DevOps: Applying DevOps Principles and Practices to Cyber-Physical System Engineering

Presenter: Marguerite Bryan

Abstract: DevOps has become the rallying cry of organizations looking to improve time-to-market, quality and other strategic business outcomes. However, much like the Agile Manifesto itself, DevOps surfaced and was developed with a strong software-centric focus. Our more recent frontier is the scaling of DevOps practices to the engineering of large, complex cyber-physical systems composed of hardware, firmware, and software.
In this Hardware-Inclusive DevOps presentation, we will examine the core tenets of DevOps and how they can be applied in organizations building cyber-physical systems. While many of the DevOps principles and practices can be leveraged and applied with minimal adaptation for hardware-inclusive solutions, there are emerging technologies which complement core DevOps practices to specifically address the challenges of applying these principles in the development of cyber-physical systems. Participants will leave with a better understanding of how DevOps practices can be extended to hardware-inclusive systems, and with an action plan for applying these learnings in their organization.
