MagicDraw – MapleMBSE – MBSE Made Easier – Maplesoft

MapleMBSE for MagicDraw

MapleMBSE is an Excel-based tool that provides a tight integration with MagicDraw, and synchronizes with Teamwork Cloud to ensure that models are always up to date.

Why Choose MapleMBSE for your Next Project?

Here are just some of the ways that MapleMBSE streamlines the management of project requirements when using MagicDraw

Easy-to-use Excel-based UI for Systems Engineering

MapleMBSE gives you an intuitive, Excel®-based interface for easily entering system definitions without having to be an expert in your company’s MBSE tool.

  • Task-specific views for requirements list, functional requirements matrix, use cases, and more
  • Easily work with your model by using familiar Excel features such as hiding columns, sorting lists, and autofill
  • MapleMBSE is automatically populated with all of the relevant information from the SysML model
  • All changes made within MapleMBSE are automatically synchronized with your primary systems engineering tool


Using Excel-based workflows with MagicDraw

Allows all stakeholders to contribute to the Systems Engineering process

With MapleMBSE, you don’t need to be a systems engineering expert to contribute to the process. Task-specific views are excel-based and show each stakeholder only what they need to see.

  • Stakeholders using MapleMBSE only see the information relative to their task, reducing clutter and making engagement easier
  • Get buy-in easier with an Excel-based interface already familiar to virtually every stakeholder
  • Tasks can be completed entirely within MapleMBSE, removing the need for stakeholders to use their primary MBSE tool
  • A live connection to your primary SE tool allows systems engineers to easily collaborate with other stakeholders


Giving all stakeholders task-specific views that are synchronized with Teamwork Cloud

Simplifies information-entry, reducing risk of errors

MapleMBSE allows you to use natural language and numerical inputs to reduce errors associated with the complex entry mechanisms of MBSE tools.

  • Stakeholders can work using a simplified Excel-based interface that automatically detects certain errors
  • Use Excel features like autofill, spellcheck, and equation checking to ensure simple errors are prevented
  • Users can lock model elements to prevent further changes, and locks are synchronized between MapleMBSE and your primary tool
  • Automatic detection of duplicates to reduce the risk of simple errors propagating in your model definitions


Using MapleMBSE to simplify information entry for MagicDraw

Offers rapid customization of model views and data integration

Because every systems engineering project is different, MapleMBSE allows you to provide customized model views that best suit the task at hand.

  • Standard task views can be fully customized to suit your organization’s practices
  • Using SysML, systems engineers can create custom model views for each stakeholder within their organization
  • Customized model views are automatically synchronized with your primary SE tool
  • Maplesoft Engineering Solutions provides consultation and services to create custom deployments of MapleMBSE


Providing customized SE workflows for interacting with Teamwork Cloud models

MapleMBSE: By the Numbers

Reduce the risk of both simple and complex errors by using MapleMBSE with Magic Draw.

The benefits of using MapleMBSE have also been demonstrated by researchers. Using MapleMBSE resulted in higher productivity and fewer errors compared to performing the same tasks using a standard MBSE tool directly. In addition, when errors were made, they were simple errors, such as spelling mistakes, which are much easier to identify and correct.

Researchers observed a 4-fold reduction in errors and the elimination of complex errors with the use of MapleMBSE.
