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?

We are happy to announce the publication of the 3rd edition of "SysML for Systems Engineering: 3rd edition: A model-based approach" (known to many as The Monster) .

 
     
 

Contents

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

  • 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 were removed. Don't worry - we have made the content of these Annexes available on our Knowledge Base.
