Release date: 10th December 2012
For the description of the FR (Feature Release) and LTR (Long-term Release - Gibraltar),
please read the article No Magic Introduces New Gibraltar Long-Term Releases.
The Display Parts dialog has been enhanced to support infinite levels of the composition tree, enabling quick selection and displaying of any deep-nested parts in IBD and Parametric diagrams.
Moreover, automatic pathname dot notation will be generated when deep-nested parts are selected without also selecting their owning blocks/parts.
“SysML-Lite is a simplified version of the language to help people get started modeling with SysML, but is not part of the SysML standard. It includes six of the nine SysML diagrams, and a small subset of the available language features for each diagram kind. SysML-Lite provides a significant modeling capability.” -
A Practical Guide to SysML, 2nd Edition, Chapter 3.3.
The standard mode of the System Engineer perspective has been simplified according to the SysML-Lite description to reduce the learning curve of new system engineering team members.
Note: To enable the full set of SysML concepts, open the Select Perspectives dialog (click Options > Perspectives > Perspectives on the main menu), and switch the System Engineer perspective to the Expert mode.
The SysML plugin introduces a predefined set of Relation maps to increase traceability of system requirements and design elements.
The Relation map is a special kind of diagram that automatically updates and renders an elements dependency tree according to predefined dependency criteria.
SysML 17.0.3 adds predefined maps for:
- Activity Decomposition analysis
- Instance Tree traversal
- Nested and derived Requirements
- Structure decomposition (alternative to the Structure tree in the Model Browser)
The following figures depict two examples of the predefined Relation map: the Activity decomposition map and the Subsystem decomposition map.
- QUDV library is updated according to http://www.omg.org/spec/SysML/20120401/ISO-80000-1-QUDV.xmi
- Attributes of ValueType are available in the Specification window and BDD diagram allowing quicker creation of complex data types.
- Enumeration as ValueType is added into the BDD diagram toolbar.
- A Nested Requirement Diagram with the parent requirement displayed can now be created from the New Diagram shortcut menu.
