SysML Explained

Learn SysML from an expert:

SysML – the systems modelling language – is a central part of modern MBSE. The language is powerful and flexible, but also requires a lot from its users and other stakeholders. SysML Explained gives you the fundamentals of creating a model describing your system-of-interest including requirements, stakeholders, system contexts, use cases, and domain blocks. In this course, you will also learn the basics of describing and analyzing your business and operations using SysML.

To train your skills in visualizing your system-of-interest from different perspectives, you will in the course use SysML to create common architectural views in systems engineering. For example, we discuss the physical, logical, product-oriented, and functional views. The course contains many practical examples and ample opportunities to get help and guidance from real experts.

SysML Explained is equally suitable as a first standalone introduction to MBSE, or as a module in the Nordic MBSE School. The course is conducted in partnership with oose.

Our introduction course in SysML is targeting you who has some previous knowledge in systems engineering but would like to learn more about the fundamentals of SysML, and how to apply SysML to describe and analyse business, requirements, and architecture. SysML Explained is also suitable as a dedicated course in the SysML notation focusing on what you can do with the language, and how to manage and understand SysML’s limitations and challenges.


The course introduces SysML and gives you a deeper understanding for how SysML can be applied to describe and analyse business, requirements, and architecture. SysML Explained is a module of the Nordic MBSE School but also suitable as a standalone introduction to SysML.
