SysML Plugin 19.0 LTR Documentation

A Subsystem is typically a large, encapsulated block within a larger system.

You can convert any Block to a Subsystem if you decide that the appropriate Block is decomposed. It may be called a system (i.e., Power Subsystem, Brake Subsystem, Lightening Subsystem).


Visibility representation

In SysML, properties and operations of the Block are public. Visibility representation literals, like +, #, ~, -, are not displayed in the Containment tree or in the element symbol on a diagram.

Converting a Block to Subsystem

To convert a Block to Subsystem

  1. Right-click a Block.
