The objective of prostep ivip's SysML WF project group is to identify the needs and requirements of industry with regard to both the SysML language itself and SysML tools. Based on use cases that are highly relevant in practice, this project examines in which scenarios and for which purposes SysML is used in industry, to what extent today's solutions and the modeling language support the needs of the users themselves, and what has to be done to achieve full industrial applicability of SysML in the future.
In 2019, focus was placed on laying the foundation for testing the exchange of SysML models based on the use cases. To this end, a generic reference process for exchanging models between OEMs and suppliers, which will form the basis for test cases, was created during the course of the year. These tests serve to identify areas that require improvement and subsequently to derive requirements relating to SysML, the exchange formats used (e.g. XMI, SpecIF) and tools.
In addition, two additional work packages were launched in 2019: "Systematic validation and verification management based on system models" and "The exchange of requirements between OEMs and suppliers, including traceability to affected system architecture artifacts". In 2019, the work packages mainly involved defining the underlying use cases in greater detail and working closely with each other and with the model exchange work package. They also provided input for a common process architecture that covers the entire product development cycle.
In 2020, focus will remain on establishing a common reference process for collaboration over the entire product development cycle and on the further development of test cases. These will then be used to identify the need for optimization and derive functional requirements relating to cross-enterprise model exchange. Another aim for 2020 is planning a technically oriented committee that will deal with the practical implementation of the functional requirements.
