Model-Based Engineering

Rigorous SysML and Custom Diagrams
Generated Instantly

Twenty-first century design and manufacturing depend on digital transformation. That's why model-based systems engineering (MBSE) and diagram automation are taking off. See how we instantly transform your system model definitions into rigorous, customized, user-friendly, and highly interactive visualizations. Watch a video.

Available now! Tom Sawyer Perspectives, Version 8.0, Beta, with MBSE visualizations for the desktop and web, and integration with Teamwork Cloud and MagicDraw.

MBSE SysML Customer Case Study

Global Leader in the Aerospace Industry

Problem: Systems engineers were spending 80% of their time manually rearranging and validating diagrams. Review and update of 75 diagrams required four engineer-weeks of manual effort.

Solution: Tom Sawyer Perspectives was integrated with the customer's systems engineering tool, MagicDraw, to automatically generate SysML-compliant, consistent, readable and semantically rich diagrams.

Result: One engineer produced 400 diagrams in less than an hour—an 800x improvement in productivity. Rigorous diagram generation algorithms built into our software made this increase possible.
