The design of a train, plane or satellite is a multidisciplinary activity that requires the intervention of numerous experts in specific and various fields (mechanics, software, electronics, telecommunications, energy, safety, etc.).
To succeed, this type of project requires the implementation of a Systems Engineering approach and effective communication between the experts throughout the project's life cycle: from the definition of the needs to the maintenance, including the design and development phases.
Today, a classic Systems Engineering approach based on textual documentation is no longer adequate due to the increasing complexity of systems and their architectures.
In order to maintain a global and coherent vision, an alternative is to use a model-based approach (MBSE or Model-Based Systems Engineering).
We believe an MBSE workbench should be:
• Adaptable: it should provide specific viewpoints and services well suited to the different steps and stakeholders of your engineering process ;
• Open: it should enable integration and interoperability with third-party tools in order to access all design data and to promote information exchange ;
• Scalable: it should be easily extended and maintained to support the enhancements inherent to Systems Engineering.
Realistic and pragmatic, this approach, which supports an operational industrialization of Systems Engineering, is a key factor in your competitiveness:
Faithful to the Open Innovation principles, Obeo is involved in the development of Capella ecosystem, the Open Source MBSE solution created by Thales. We thus bring unique expertise to create tools, on your behalf, that are sustainable, easy-to-use and adapted to your methodology.
Thanks to our expertise in the Open Source modeling technologies that compose Capella, Obeo is a key partner for a large and successful deployment of this MBSE solution:

The Melody ecosystem is a field-proven modeling solution developed by Thales and Obeo. It offers an environment with a high added-value for engineers working on system, software and hardware architectures.
At the center of this ecosystem is a graphical modeling workbench that provides a focus on functional analysis, (complex) architectures definition and early validation.
To improve collaboration between system designer and safety assurance manager, Alstom has created a specific modeling workbench with Sirius.
Supporting a model-based Systems Engineering methodology defined by Alstom, this tool allows safety engineers to graphically describe their analyses (PHA and SHA) by directly requesting the SysML design model of the system. It strongly couples railway signalling system design with risk and safety studies.
The CNES has defined a model-based approach to generate RTSJ source code, a Java version designed to support both hard and soft real-time application.
In order to easily configure space systems middlewares, Sirius has been used to complement a UML modeling workbench (based on Eclipse) with a DSL dedicated to the communication protocols.
Sirius has been used to create a modeling workbench for the European Space Agency that supports a generic architecture for on-board satellites applications.
This workbench aims to make software development faster in the context of a reduced schedule, to allow late definition or changes to cope with the various system integration strategies.
