Q: What types of simulation, execution, and calculation are available for SysML with MagicDraw/Cameo?


There are a number of ways of simulating and executing various aspects of Systems Modeling Language (SysML®), and they are not just novelties! They also really help your models become more robust, logical, and organised.

There is "internal" tool simulation of Activities and StateMachines based on fUML (or variations of it).

Cameo Simulation Toolkit v19SP3: The "hover" feature for showing values of objects may show duplicates if there are redefined value properties.

This page identifies a possible issue, inconsistency, concern, error, or bug!
One of the ways Webel IT Australia helps promote tools, technologies, and languages is by donating a lot of time identifying, tracking, and reporting potential issues, in order to help vendors and developers improve the tools and technologies. In some cases, we also offer workarounds and advice for users. All issues tracked on our public site are offered most constructively and with sincerest gratitude to the tool vendors and technology developers.

OpenModelica zone

If you use the Modelica Language for simulation it's basically a rite of passage to at least try out OpenModelica, although your mileage on various operating systems and versions thereof can vary wildly (you can always ask for the money back that you didn't pay).

Alf zone


Alf - the Action Language for Foundation UML - is a UML-friendly textual "surface language" intended for use together with fUML. Useful for those tasks in Activity and StateMachine diagrams that don't lend themselves to graphical modelling.

HERA particle collider beam dynamics: Maple symbolic worksheet example.
