Essentials of IBM Rational Rhapsody V8.1 for Systems Engineers - QQ144G

Essentials of IBM Rational Rhapsody V8.1 for Systems Engineers - QQ144G


This basic course is for systems engineers and project managers.


You should have knowledge of systems engineering.


4 days. Hands on.

Course Objectives

In this course you learn the techniques required to use the Systems Modeling Language (SysML V1.3) and Rational Rhapsody to solve a complex system engineering problem.

Through the use of hands-on exercises creating "real world" applications, you build a strong foundation in SysML and Rhapsody. The process by which models are created is explored through the creation of a "real-world" systems engineering model. You'll learn how to use Rhapsody to build a model of a filling station. The essential SysML diagrams for Requirements Analysis, System Functional Analysis and System Design Synthesis are explored in the exercises.

New in this version of the course is coverage of executable token-based activity diagrams, Metrics views, OSLC-based requirements linking and SysML 1.3 Proxy Ports and Interface Blocks.

Course objectives include:

  • Learn the product in the context of a system engineering process flow to ensure you are comfortable applying Rhapsody at all phases of system analysis and design.
  • Create systems level models with full traceability to oslc-based requirements, impact and coverage analysis.
  • Validate systems models through execution.
