INTEGRATING SYSML WITH SIMULINK USING OPEN-SOURCE MODEL TRANSFORMATIONS

Andrea Sindico, Marco Di Natale, Gianpiero Panci

Abstract

The realization of an integrated and automated modelling flow and tool framework joining OMG (i.e. UML, SysML, etc.) and Mathworks (i.e. Matlab, Simulink, etc.) models and technologies is a very attractive perspective because of the possibility of complementing their capabilities and strenghts. In this paper we describe our project for an integrated flow and our initial results, consisting of a transformation workflow to automatically generate Simulink models from SysML models and viceversa. Our proposed process is compliant with the OMG Model Driven Architecture. The transformations have been realized using the TopCased open-source modeling tool and the Acceleo model-to-text generator.
