SysML for Systems Engineering: 3rd edition: A model-based approach

What's that coming over the hill? Is it a monster? Is it a monster?

The manuscript for the third edition of Jon and Simon's SysML book, known within Scarecrow since the second edition as 'The Monster' due to its huge size, has been submitted. This will be the first update to The Monster and will be published by the IET in Q3/4 2018.

 
     
 

Contents

This is not a complete rewrite of The Monster, but an update. It will include:

  • Corrections to the errata that found its way into the second edition
  • An update of the core modelling notation to SysML 1.5
  • An update of the ISO 15288 standards model to the latest version
  • An update of various chapters to reflect the frameworks (and tool profiles) described in our book ‘Foundations for Model-based Systems Engineering: From Patterns to Models'
  • New chapters on:
    • The Benefits of MBSE
    • Model Structure and Management
    • Model Maturity
    • Value Chain Modelling

In order to make room for the new material, Annexes C, D and F from the second edition will be removed. Don't worry - we will make the content of these Annexes available on our Knowledge Base once the third edition is published.

The content of the third edition is:

Chapter 1 - Introduction to MBSE
