Tutorial Objectives:

This introductory course should provide the student with an understanding of:

  • Benefits of model-based approaches for systems engineering
  • SysML diagrams and language concepts
  • The role of SysML in a model-based SE process

Tutorial Description:
The Object Management Group Systems Modeling Language (OMG SysML™) is a general purpose graphical modeling language for specifying, analyzing, designing, and verifying complex systems that may include hardware, software, information, personnel, procedures, and facilities. In particular, it provides graphical representations with a semantic foundation for modeling system requirements, behavior, structure, and constraints that support a broad range of engineering analyses. SysML represents a subset of UML 2.0, with extensions needed to satisfy the requirements of the UML for Systems Engineering RFP. For more information on SysML, including articles, tool vendor and related links, and the specification, go to

This tutorial provides an introduction to how SysML can address the needs of the systems engineer and includes:

  • background and motivation
  • an overview of the SysML diagram types and language concepts
  • A class exercise to help solidify the student's understanding of the language

Prerequisites: Background in systems engineering. Exposure to UML is helpful, but not required.

Students should download the 'Model-Based Systems Engineering with SysML' Tutorial from the APL Technology Transfer website:

Please download this prior to the class and bring a soft copy on your computer if you wish. Each participant will need to acknowledge the EULA for using this material.
