Next week, in Seattle, WA, the INCOSE's 25th Annual International Symposium will be held, going back to the city where the symposium got started.
If you are a reader of this blog, you should already be familiar with INCOSE - it is the "International Council on Systems Engineering", a not-for-profit organization with a mission to "share, promote and advance the best of systems engineering from across the globe for the benefit of humanity and the planet."
This is a great opportunity for PolarSys, an Eclipse Industry Working Group dedicated to the creation and support of Open Source tools for the development of embedded (and, dare I say, cyber-physical) systems - especially since the working group has much in common with INCOSE's vision!
In line with INCOSE's Systems Engineering Vision 2020 for Models and Model-based Systems Engineering, there will be an emphasis on our modelling tools:
Papyrus [links: PolarSys | Eclipse] is the PolarSys solution for SysML and UML modeling that features extension and customization capabilities for full integration with the development lifecyle.
We will be showing Papyrus's system engineering side with a demonstration of its SysML capabilities that enables modelers to create complete models that transform into runnable executable code. As well we'll be showing Papyrus for Real-Time [link:Eclipse], our complete "the model is the code" software modeling and development environment for cyber-physical systems,
- Papyrus, because it is open source and by its extensible and configurable nature, is also a prime candidate to be the experimental platform of choice for tools that will support the future of systems engineering, as documented in both INCOSE's Systems Engineering Vision 2020 and Systems Engineering Vision 2025.
I would like to invite you to come to booth B6-B7 at the exhibition hall and allow us to entertain you with PolarSys' solutions! Not only will you be able to learn more about our open source solutions for system engineering, you will also be able to see demos of the tools and engage us around our respective visions of the present and future of systems engineering.
I look forward to meeting you in Seattle!
