First Papyrus IC Research/Academia webinar of 2017

If you’ve been following this blog, you already know that I have an Industry Consortium.

And that committee is known to hold very interesting webinars about various aspects of modeling, open source, and, of course, ME!

SE Trends looks at Papyrus-IM!

Earlier this month, The Systems Engineering Trends blog featured an article from my friend Michael Jastram about one of my variants: Papyrus for Information Modeling (or Papyrus-IM for short). You might remember Michael from earlier this year (see here)

For those who do not know, Papyrus-IM is:

Check out some videos he’s made on YouTube:
