This ebook; Model-Based System Architecture (PDF) combines the emerging discipline of systems architecting with model-based approaches using SysML. The early chapters of the ebook provide the fundamentals of systems architecture; discussing what systems architecting entails and how it benefits systems engineering. Model-based systems engineering is then defined; and its capabilities to develop complex systems on time and in very feasible quality are discussed. The remainder of the etextbook covers important topics such as: architecture patterns; architecture descriptions; viewpoints; perspectives; views and their relation to system architecture; systems architecting processes; agile approaches to systems architecting; the roles of a system architect; their team; and stakeholders; architecture frameworks; variant modeling techniques; and architecture assessment. The ebook’s organization allows experts to read the chapters out of sequence. Novices can read the chapters sequentially to gain a systematic introduction to system architecting.
Model-Based System Architecture advantage:
- Covers architecture frameworks; including the System of Systems; TOGAF®; Zachman Frameworks; and more
- Provides comprehensive coverage of the Functional Architecture for Systems (FAS) method created by the authors and based on common MBSE practices
- Includes a consistent example system; the “Virtual Museum Tour” system; that allows the authors to demonstrate the systems architecting concepts covered in the textbook
Model-Based System Architecture is a comprehensive reference for systems engineers and system architects in technology companies. This ebook will also serve as a reference to students and researchers interested in functional architectures.
