From Manual to Machine-executable Model-based Systems Engineering via Graph-based Design Languages

Benedikt Walter, Dennis Kaiser, Stephan Rudolph

Abstract

Today, Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) is widely used in the successful design of complex systems in various industries. It intends to provide a complete description of the design process of complex systems in form of a V-Model or one of its various extensions thereof (extended V-Model). While already several formal languages like Unified Modelling Language (UML) and Systems Modelling Language (SysML) are used to formally describe the design process and behavioural aspects of the design as well, models in UM- or SysML are still mostly assembled and connected manually. Instead, graph-based design languages based on UML make use of the digital representation of the design process with the additional benefit of a repeatable execution encoded in an activity diagram within a rule set. This allows for a seamless transformation of a formerly mainly manual MBSE-approach towards a fully automated, machine-executable MBSE approach. The article will focus on the impact of graph-based design on that transition from classical MBSE towards machine-executable MBSE. We show this with the example of an automotive dashboard.
