Presentation Abstract

Leveraging Alf for SysML, Part 1: Better Simulation Modeling

  • Speaker: Ed Seidewitz - Model Driven Solutions
  • When: Day 1 : Sunday May 19th
  • Alf is the OMG-standard textual language specifically designed for specifying executable behavior in the context of graphical, executable UML and SysML models. It is the best alternative to using complicated activity diagrams or scripting languages not designed for use in models. This tutorial provides a hands-on introduction to the Alf Plugin for MagicDraw, which fully supports the use of Alf in SysML models created using Cameo Systems Modeler and executed using Cameo Simulation Toolkit.

    Come to Part 1 and learn how to take advantage of Alf to create better SysML simulation models more easily than ever before. Using the integrated Alf Editor, you will create detail behaviors for blocks in the context of state machine, activity and operation models. And this session provides all the foundation necessary for the more detailed look at trade study modeling in Part 2 on Wednesday.

    Prerequisites: Knowledge of SysML and experience with MagicDraw or Cameo System Modeler is presumed. Experience with Cameo Simulation Toolkit may be helpful but is not required. No prior knowledge of Alf is assumed.
