SysML Models from the Book
The models from Chapters 3, 4, 16, and 17 from the 3rd Edition are included below in both Magic Draw v18 .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 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. Alternatively, you can view the HTML directly without downloading the file using the HTML links below.
