OpenMBEE provides a platform for modeling that utilizes the Model Management System (MMS) that can be accessed from rich SysML desktop clients like MagicDraw, light-weight web-based client like View Editor, mathematical computation programs like Mathematica, and any other tool that can utilize RESTful web services. It provides infrastructure for versioning, workflow management, and access control. OpenMBEE facilitates multi-tool and multi-repository integration across engineering, computing, and management disciplines. OpenMBEE provides the core allowing tracking relations between heterogeneous data sources in a linked data architecture. System models are constructed, queried and rendered following the view and viewpoint paradigm.
MDK is a plugin for MagicDraw that's primary purposes are to sync SysML models with the MMS and implement the DocGen language, which allows modelers to dynamically generate documents in a model-based approach using the view and viewpoint concept.
MMS is a version control system for structured data. It exposes model information through RESTful web services that can be used for CRUD operations, branching, and tagging of the model repository.
VE is designed to enable users to interact with SysML models within a web-based environment. It implements the MMS REST API to provide a web environment to create, read, and update model elements, including Documents and Views.
TMT is currently being developed by the TMT Observatory Corporation. The TMT SysML model provides an industrial scale application of OpenMBEE and system-level behavior simulation. The main objective for the TMT related analysis is to provide state-dependent power roll-ups for different operational scenarios and demonstrate that requirements are satisfied by the design as well as mass roll-ups and duration analysis of the operational use cases. The model is built with an approach to model-based systems analysis with SysML that is both rigorous and automated. The approach’s rigor is established with a modeling method that is an extension of INCOSE’s Object Oriented Systems Engineering Method (OOSEM).
