The SysML Plugin contains powerful new features for system and software engineers. These benefits include support of the new SysML 1.5 specification, ability to apply the MagicGrid approach in your models, simplified usage of units, and other meaningful improvements.
We are proud to announce that our tools support the new SysML 1.5 specification as of 19.0 LTR! The main change is the new concept of Abstract Requirement, which allows you to extend the Requirement concept and base it on any kind of model element. For an example, download the new Property Based Requirements.mdzipsample model.
The Property-Based Requirement as a Constraint Block extension.
All new SysML projects use:
100x simplified and filtered ISO 80000 library with only 50 hand-picked basic units.
The new basic US customary, naval and imperial units library (with inch, pound, mile and more).
You can now represent Association Block usages in the Internal Block Diagrams. Simply drag the Association Block from the model onto a Connector to set it as its type and automatically create a Connector Property symbol with a dashed line attached to the Connector.
The Plumbing Connector Property is created after dragging the Plumbing Association Block on the p2 Connector.
Improved Implied Connectors
The implied Connectors functionality is improved as follows:
You can select a solid Line Style of the implied relation in the Symbol Properties dialog.
You can display an implied relation when a Connector is created between a port on one side of the part directly to another part (e.g. the part serves as a communication bus).
When creating a new SysML Allocation Matrix, you can choose Definition or Usage mode. Accordingly, these modes display Allocate relationships either between Activities and Blocks or Actions and Part Properties. By default, the Create SysML Allocation Matrix dialog (see the figure below) appears each time you create a new SysML Allocation Matrix in SysML projects. Differently, when creating a new SysML Allocation Matrix in the MagicGrid project, the usage allocation matrix is created by default. You can change that by specifying the SysML Allocation Matrix Mode option value in the Project Options dialog.
