Waterloo, Canada; April 26, 2018: Maplesoft™ today announced a new release of MapleMBSE, the software that enables companies to employ a Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) approach to requirements management without requiring every engineer on the project to be an expert in complex MBSE tools. The latest release increases connectivity with Teamwork Cloud from No Magic, enabling engineers to manage their requirements in a collaborative environment.
Using an Excel®-based interface, MapleMBSE makes collaboration on requirements accessible to all stakeholders, not just the MBSE tool experts. It provides streamlined interfaces for each task in the MBSE project, making them significantly easier to perform, and reducing the time and errors that typically come with using a standard MBSE tool. With the new release, collaboration is further enhanced through tighter integration with Teamwork Cloud and its version control tools. With MapleMBSE 2018, multiple users can be working on the same project requirements simultaneously, and Teamwork Cloud will manage the changes and warn of any conflicts. In addition, it is now possible to use branches, which are useful for experimenting with potential changes to the requirements without affecting the current definition, and for creating a starting point for new projects that share many of the same requirements.
Enhanced security in MapleMBSE 2018 also provides more flexibility for collaboration. Connections between MapleMBSE and Teamwork Cloud are now encrypted using a secure SSL connection, so external stakeholders can access the project requirements from outside the company, and the data remains protected at all times.
“Model-based systems engineering allows organizations to create and maintain a tight connection to requirements through every phase of the project, and by using MapleMBSE, companies can work faster, significantly reduce errors associated with the use of standard MBSE tools, and enable wider collaboration,” said Dr. Laurent Bernardin, Chief Operating Officer and Chief Scientist at Maplesoft. “With access to more tools for managing changes, the new release makes this essential collaboration easier than ever.”
MapleMBSE integrates with standard SysML-based MBSE platforms such as IBM®, Rational®, Rhapsody® and Teamwork Cloud from No Magic. MapleMBSE can seamlessly access models by MagicDraw® and Cameo® Systems Modeler through Teamwork Cloud.
