About this companion site

Welcome to this companion site for the 2nd Edition of A Practical Guide to SysML This site includes:

  • A link to tutorials that are based on this book
  • PowerPoint slides for all the figures in the book and the notation tables from the Appendix
  • Example models from Chapters 3, 4 16 and 17 of the book in both Magic Draw and HTEML

Official OMG SysML website

Refer to the official OMG SysML website for updated information on SysML, including specification status, tool vendors, publications, and a discussion group.

MBSE Tutorials

This link includes tutorials based on materials from our book that includes:

  • Model-based Systems Engineering with the Systems Modeling Language (SysML) - Tutorial
  • Model-based Systems Engineering with the Systems Modeling Language (SysML) - Course
  • Model-based Systems Engineering using the OOSEM - Tutorial

The SysML material is an introductory course to SysML, which primarily focuses on the basic feature set required by OCSMP certification. The OOSEM material is based on the MBSE method described in Chapter 17 of the 2nd Edition (Chapter 16 of the 1st Edition). The material may be periodically updated to reflect updates to the SysML and OOSEM material.

Figures from the Book in PowerPoint

SysML Models from the Book

The models from Chapters 3, 4, 16, and 17 from the 2nd Edition are included below in both Magic Draw v17.0 format (mdzip) and in HTML. A diagram called the Figure Map is included in each of the models to provide a simple way to navigate the model. If you do not have a Magic Draw, just download the HTML files to your desktop, unzip the file, and put in a separate folder. Then select the index file to access the model in HTML.
