This course teaches Model-based Systems Engineering (MBSE) using IBM Rhapsody and SysML. 

This three-day, hands-on class interweaves training in SysML diagram notation for systems engineering with tool-based labs in Rhapsody focused on modeling core structural and behavior diagrams and tracing to requirements. 

At the end of the course, students will have a clear understanding of core notations in SysML such as use case, activity, sequence, block definition, and internal block diagrams and an appreciation of different methods used to construct systems engineering models. Students will understand how to get the best out of Rhapsody and how models are controlled and stored using properties and units. They will come away with a host of tips and tricks for building the different diagrams in Rhapsody. Additionally, students will gain foundation knowledge in how Rhapsody models import or trace to requirements in external sources such as DOORS or DOORS Next.

Overview of SysML Diagrams
• Overview of diagrams and how they relate to each other
• Navigating between elements (e.g., structural elements to behavioral diagrams)
• Appreciation of tables and matrices and their usage
Exploring a Model with Rhapsody
• Rhapsody user interface essentials and how diagrams relate to each other
Use Cases and Requirements
• Appreciation of use case, requirements, and use case step relationships
• An appreciation of activity models for analysis
• Tips for creating diagrams
Rhapsody Profiles and Properties
• Creating a model from scratch, including properties and profiles
• Appreciation of how to set up and use the tool effectively with profiles and properties
Working with External Requirements
Gateway Synchronizer for Requirements Sync (optional/swap-in)
• Understand Rhapsody’s integrations with requirements managed via Gateway synchronizer 
RMM and Remote Resources for Requirements Linking (optional/swap-in)
• Overview of the IBM Jazz platform and remote requirements; OSLC links to Jazz, RTC Eclipse
• Accessing models by web-client for review purposes, etc.
Activity Modeling
• Using activity modeling for system analysis 
• Different ways of viewing traceability to requirements, including diagrams, tablets, and matrices
Tables and Matrices
• Requirement traceability essentials, including matrices, and tables
• Tables and matrices
• Appreciation of more advanced techniques (e.g., context patterns)
Navigating Rhapsody Units
• Understanding how projects are stored and how to open them
Understanding OO Relations for BDD or Class Diagrams
• Understanding relations in UML/SysML: composition, association, generalization, aggregation, dependencies
• Understanding use of composite structure for hierarchical decomposition of systems, including ports, parts, and connectors
• Controlling compartments and associated display options
• Tips for getting diagrams out of Rhapsody quickly and controlling printing
• Interaction Modeling (Sequence Diagrams)
• Sequence diagram modeling for defining interfaces between elements
• Appreciating state-machines and their relationship with sequence diagrams
Ports and Interfaces
• Understanding difference between port types, including pros and cons

Class may be extended one day to cover additional topics, such as state machine modeling, Rhapsody Model Manager, more detail on storage of models, etc.

Systems engineers or software engineers using Rhapsody and SysML to model software-intensive systems. This course teaches SysML rather than UML although the core diagrams do overlap both languages. This course assumes no prior knowledge of SysML or modeling.

Basic understanding of systems engineering and requirements management. 

When does class start/end?

Classes begin promptly at 9:00 am, and typically end at 5:00 pm.

Does the course schedule include a Lunchbreak?

Lunch is normally an hour long and begins at noon. Coffee, tea, hot chocolate and juice are available all day in the kitchen. Fruit, muffins and bagels are served each morning. There are numerous restaurants near each of our centers, and some popular ones are indicated on the Area Map in the Student Welcome Handbooks - these can be picked up in the lobby or requested from one of our ExitCertified staff.

How can someone reach me during class?

If someone should need to contact you while you are in class, please have them call the center telephone number and leave a message with the receptionist.

What languages are used to deliver training?

Most courses are conducted in English, unless otherwise specified. Some courses will have the word "FRENCH" marked in red beside the scheduled date(s) indicating the language of instruction.

Brandon was a great instructor. The virtual course materials and labs provided were very informative.

Labs and the study materials provided for Architecting on AWS course are very easy to understand and explains all the topics required to pass the Associate certification.

The class was very vast paced however the teacher was very good at checking in on us while giving us time to complete the labs.

Course trainer was excellent, content was well organized. However, labs should be instructor lead versus on your own. Much time is wasted for newbees in getting acclimated to tool set, AWS environment, navigating and setting up things to complete tasks. This was my third class and I was barely able to finish most of the labs. (The first 2 classes I only finished one lab exercise for the 2 together.)

Some Labs are very good but some steps it ask to update but its already updated, but overall its very good training.
