Chapter 3: Getting Started with SysML
Chapter 3 provides an introduction to SysML and guidance on how to begin modeling with SysML. The chapter provides a brief overview of SysML, and then introduces a simplified version of the language that is referred to as SysML-Lite, along with a simplified example, and tool tips on how to capture the model in a typical modeling tool. This chapter also introduces a simplified model-based systems engineering (MBSE) method that is consistent with the systems engineering process described in Chapter 1, Section 1.2. The chapter finishes by describing some of the challenges involved in learning SysML and MBSE.
