This course offers an in-depth exploration of the Systems Modelling Language (SysML), a standardised modelling language by the Object Management Group (OMG) and an offshoot of Unified Modelling Language (UML) 2. You’ll learn to apply SysML within Enterprise Architect through hands-on examples. SysML, akin to UML, is a versatile language predominantly utilized in systems engineering for delineating complex systems’ structure, behavior, and functionality.

The course adopts a hybrid learning approach to ease you into Enterprise Architect:

  • eLearning: Master the fundamentals at your own pace and setting via our e-platform, ensuring uniform foundational knowledge among all learners. The material spans roughly 6 hours and is outlined here.

  • Live Training: Engage in a 3-day, instructor-led virtual workshop from 9 AM to 4 PM daily.


Designed for engineers and systems engineering practitioners seeking foundational SysML knowledge and its application in Enterprise Architect.

For those with prior SysML or Enterprise Architect experience, this course serves to broaden and enhance your expertise.


  • Comprehending SysML: Acquaint yourself with SysML symbols and their meanings, enabling accurate diagram interpretation.

  • Applying SysML: Gain insight into SysML’s concepts and their relevance, allowing you to articulate intricate systems, document architectures and data frameworks, and craft comprehensive system design models.

  • Navigating Enterprise Architect: Familiarize yourself with Enterprise Architect’s core layout and functionalities for model creation and modification, along with essential SysML modelling techniques.

Additionally, the course addresses these queries:

  • The unique benefits of SysML.

  • Distinctions between UML and SysML.

  • Core concepts of SysML.

  • Appropriate diagram types for various modelling purposes.

  • Structuring models with SysML.

  • SysML’s role in managing requirements.

  • Architecting system structures using SysML.

  • Leveraging SysML within Enterprise Architect for optimal results.


Effective modelling necessitates not only a language like SysML but also a robust tool like Enterprise Architect, coupled with a methodical approach for language application. Practical experience is key to efficient and impactful work.


SysML’s general-purpose nature allows for varied applications. This course zeroes in on using SysML for system analysis and description. Post-course, you’ll be versed in the fundamental aspects of:

  • Use Case Model: Outlines essential system functions.

  • Requirements Model: Connects non-functional requirements to the broader model via textual descriptions.

  • Block Definition Diagram: Maps out system structures, constituent blocks, and their interfaces.

  • Internal Block Definition Diagram: Details the internal configuration and connections of system components.

  • State Machine: Chronicles event-driven system behaviors.

  • Activity Diagram: Sequences specific system functionalities.

  • Sequence Diagram: Chronicles interactions and communications between system modules for particular scenarios.

  • Model Integration: Demonstrates how to synergize the aforementioned models through a practical example.

  • Parametrics Diagram Preview: Introduces the use of parametrics diagrams for mapping out functional interdependencies and limitations.


Enterprise Architect is a multifaceted modelling platform. This course will guide you through its foundational elements. Post-course, you’ll be equipped with knowledge on:

  • Enterprise Architect’s Framework: An overview of the platform’s basic architecture.

  • Key Settings and Configurations: Understanding the essential adjustments and setup options.

  • Models vs. Diagrams: Distinguishing between the structural models and visual diagrams.

  • SysML Model Navigation: Mastering the crucial tracing and navigation techniques across various SysML models.

  • Collaboration Fundamentals: Grasping the essentials of collaborative modelling.

  • Version Control with Baseline: Learning the basics of version management.

  • Documentation Generation: Exploring the capabilities for creating comprehensive documentation.


While SysML doesn’t prescribe a specific methodology, understanding the modelling process is crucial for effectively utilizing the language. This course will demonstrate how to integrate SysML’s diverse diagrams to depict systems’ structure, behavior, and functionality.

Subsequent courses will further enhance and broaden your methodological proficiency.
