SysML helpers: help section
eaUtils provides a helping feature when using the systems engineering SysML modelling language in Enterprise Architect.
- Synchronize SysML parts' stereotype to use in Internal Block Diagrams according to the associatd SysML block's stereotype.
Additional SysML related features will be added in the future releases.
eaUtils SysML features can be disabled or enabled [default] via eaUtils general settings.
A training on SysML with Sparx Enterprise Architect tool is available in France: please click on this link for further information in french.
eaUtils SysML stereotype mapping and synchronization/update on SysML parts according to their blocks is useful when SysML stereotypes defined in a UML profile or an MDG technology are used on the Enterprise Architect SysML project.
It is common practice to define and use a specific set of SysML blocks such as hardware and software blocks. The stereotype mechanism can be used to assign default colours and/or add specific properties (tagged values).
The diagram below illustrates the Hardware and Software SysML blocks and parts used in this example.
When using parts within an ibd (SysML internal block diagram), they aren't stereotyped. Assigning the right stereotype can be time consuming; eaUtils SysML Synchronize parts stereotypes is intended to deal with this issue.
eaUtils "clear SysML parts stereotypes" feature has been defined to easily undo the changes carried in eaUtils SysML Synchronize Parts Stereotypes feature.
