Simulate a SysML Model

You simulate a SysML model from a Parametric diagram, using the Simulation Configuration dialog.

Access:    Parametric Diagram Context Menu | SysML | Simulate Diagram..

How To:

To simulate a SysML model, follow the steps below:

The Parameters panel lists all of the parameters that can be assigned input

Select each of the required parameters and click on the right Arrow button to assign them as input

Parameters designated as input parameters are listed in the Inputs panel on the right.

There must be at least one input parameter assigned for the simulation to execute



Assign a set of values for each of the designated input parameters

For each input parameter, in the Input Values panel select one of the two possible value kinds:

  • Discrete - To enter a constant or a comma-separated range of discrete values
  • Range - To enter a range of values beginning at the From value and ending at the To value; the input values are incremented by the Step value



Specify the classes of output value:

  • Parameters - To output the parameters' data, select the checkbox
  • Variables - To output the data generated within each internal variable, select the checkbox; internal variables are automatically generated by the simulator



Specify how the simulation results are to be reported

The Output Format panel enables you to choose how the simulation outputs the simulation data:

  • Plot To Graph: To plot the results on a 2-dimensional graph, select the checkbox; if you select this option, you must specify an input parameter for the plot's X Axis
  • Title - To enter a title for the graph, type in the title text
  • Output to File - To output the results to a CSV text file, select the checkbox and type or browse ( ... ) for the file name



Click on the OK button to execute the simulation
