Chapter 15. Water Distiller Example Using Functional Analysis

This chapter contains an example that describes the application of SysML to the design of a water distiller system using a traditional functional analysis method. This method is familiar and intuitive to many practicing systems engineers. The example was originally developed by the International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE) to support the initial evaluation of the SysML specification. Chapter 16 demonstrates the application of SysML to a more complex problem using the object-oriented systems engineering method. The following approach is used to address the problem:

  • Stating the problem

  • Defining the model-based systems engineering approach

  • Organizing the model

  • Establishing requirements ...
