Presentation: SysML v1 was adopted in 2006 and has been a key enabler of Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE). Since that time, much has been learned about applying MBSE with SysML. This presentation describes the directions and approach for the next generation of SysML (v2) to provide capabilities that address the limitations of SysML v1 and enable the evolving practice of MBSE.

Speaker: Sanford Friedenthal is an industry leader in model-based systems engineering (MBSE) and an independent consultant. Previously, at Lockheed Martin, he led the effort to enable Model-Based Systems Development (MBSD) and other advanced practices across the company. His experience includes the application of systems engineering throughout the system life-cycle from conceptual design, through development and production on a broad range of systems in aerospace and defense. He also was a systems engineering department manager responsible for providing systems engineering people, process, and tools to support the programs. Mr. Friedenthal has been a leader of the Industry Standards effort through the Object Management Group (OMG) and INCOSE to develop the Systems Modeling Language (OMG SysML™) that was adopted by the OMG in 2006, and is currently leading the effort to develop the requirements for the next generation of SysML (v2). He is co-author of A Practical Guide to SysML.

Menu:  Summer cookout – burgers and hot dogs, potato salad, coleslaw, dessert, coffee and iced tea. Special Dietary menu available for Vegan, Vegetarian, and Gluten Free. 

Advance Registration for Meal:  $20 for Members, $25 for Non-members, and Students Free

Description: Applying UPDM 2/DODAF/MODAF with MagicDraw is a 5 day course for Unified Profile for DoDAF and MODAF (UPDM 2). The course focuses on implementation of UPDM 2 using core MagicDraw functionality and the MagicDraw UPDM 2 plug-in.

Course: This comprehensive course will help students to quickly improve planning and implementation of complex systems using UPDM 2 standards and the MagicDraw UPDM 2 plug-in. The training approach used assumes that many students have a basic understanding of DoDAF or MODAF and an understanding of how to describe an architecture. This course covers UPDM 2 in terms of the following architectural frameworks: DoDAF 1.0, DoDAF 1.5, DoDAF 2.0 (DM2) and MODAF 1.2 (M3). Contains lectures and hands-on practice on using UPDM2 for architecture development. Includes information on how to build complete and integrated architectures; Presents UPDM 2 and related standards UML 2, SoaML, and SysML where they apply to UPDM 2.
Shows how to implement and customize the DoD Architecture Framework; Covers complete UPDM 2 Models and Views. Presents a concise case study.

Course Materials: Students will receive printed course materials and a Magic Draw 30 day license key. Students must bring a laptop computer to use during the course.

Location:  The Aerospace Corporation 14745 Lee Road, Chantilly, VA 20151; U0025F computer lab classroom
