B. SysML—Systems Modeling Language
With John D. McGregor
Although not intended as a dedicated architecture description language, the Systems Modeling Language (SysML) provides sufficient constructs to meet many of the needs of a systems engineer. The engineer can represent the topology of the hardware and allocate software units to those hardware units. It is possible to represent the various architecture views needed to document a software architecture and particularly to show combined views of hardware and software.
SysML is a general-purpose systems-modeling language intended to support a broad range of analysis and design activities for systems-engineering ...
