SysML Modeling for Embedded Systems Design Optimization - A Case Study

Abstract

Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) with the SysML language allows the designer to include requirement capture and design representation in a single model. This paper proposes a methodology to obtain the best design alternative, from a SysML design, by using multi-objective optimization techniques. A SysML model is extended with stereotypes, objective functions, variability and constraints. Then an integer representation of the problem can be generated and solved as a constraint satisfaction problem (CSP). The paper illustrates our methodology using an Embedded Cognitive Safety System (ECSS) design. From a component repository and redundancy alternatives, the best design alternatives are generated, to minimize the total cost and maximize the estimated system reliability.
