EA and SysML for Systems Engineering

This course is aimed at systems engineers who are new to both SysML and Enterprise Architect. It covers the core SysML diagram types and provides delegates with experience of creating and structuring these diagrams within Enterprise Architect.
Duration: 5 days
 

Prerequisites: No prior Enterprise Architect or SysML experience is required.
A background in systems engineering is helpful.
 
Equipment: For on-site course delivery the customer should provide a suitable training room with a projector to connect to our trainer's laptop and a whiteboard or flipchart. All delegates require access to a PC or laptop running Enterprise Architect (edition supporting SysML).
 

For webinar training sessions delegates need access to a PC or laptop running Enterprise Architect (edition supporting SysML) with Internet connection and VoIP (a headset can be helpful for privacy in an office environment).

A trial version of Enterprise Architect is fine for training and can be downloaded from Sparx Systems website: www.sparxsystems.com/products/ea/trial.html

Course Style: 40% theory, 60% practical.
Each module is accompanied by paper and hands-on exercises to allow delegates to apply the theory and become confident using Enterprise Architect.
 
Delegate Handouts: Each delegate receives a folder containing all the course slides and comprehensive theory notes which form excellent reference material. Folders also contain exercises and suggested solutions. Following successful completion of the course each delegate receives a certificate.
Module Key: Teaches concepts and notation

  Teaches practical use of Enterprise Architect
             Covers BPMN, UML, SysML and/or ArchiMate
