Leveraging Simulation Templates & Processes with SysML (EX)
SysML holds the promise of leveraging generic templates and processes across design and simulation. SysML is the Object Management Group's System Modeling Language that supports graphical modeling based on UML2 for specifying, designing, analyzing, and verifying complex systems. This review updates the latest efforts at Georgia Tech to apply this approach in various domains, including specific examples with a top-tier automotive supplier, to enhance modularity and reusability through a unified method that links diverse models. It also highlights the capabilities of SysML's parametrics and usage for physics-based analysis, including integrated CAD-CAE and simulation-based requirements verification.
Keywords: SysML, parametrics, simulation templates, CAD/FEA interoperability, recurring patterns, reusability, modularity, requirements verification, composable objects, COBs, multi-representation architecture, MRA, context-based analysis models, CBAMs
