SysML is a visual modeling language, derived from the UML, particularly intended for the model based development of software intensive systems. The SysML system modelling language is specified and developed by the OMG (Object Management Group) and is supported by INCOSE (International council for System Engineering). The modelling language particularly enables the systematic application and documentation of design logic.

This one day introductory course intends to provide an overview of the various SysML modelling techniques, using simple examples from the automotive and infrastructure domains. Particular attention is paid to modeling software in conjunction with mechanical and electrical engineering aspects.

This training is available for open enrollment as well as for in-company sessions. For in-company sessions, the Introduction to SysML training can be adapted to your situation and special needs.


After completion of the course, participants will:

  • have basic knowledge of the various diagramming techniques;
  • understand and appreciate the added value of the use of SysML;
  • understand the position of SysML compared to other modelling techniques.

Intended for

This course is intended for software and system engineers involved in the development of complex software intensive system.
