SysML and Modelica Integration

At the December 2008 meeting in Santa Clara, the Systems Engineering DSIG decided to create a working group to explore the synergies between SysML and Modelica ( This Wiki-page is used to communicate among the working group members.

Implementations of the SysML-Modelica transformation are available open-source on GitHub.

MagicDraw plugin for Modelica has been updated on February 22, 2016 to support OpenModelica 1.9.3 and MagicDraw 18.2 (and earlier versions).

Version History

Model Files of Profile and Examples

For the most recent version of the models, please, refer to the svn repository:

  • Dec 31, 2009: To install the refactored model:
    • In your MD 16.6 installation directory, <install.root>, create the following folders:
      • <install.root>/profiles/OMG SysML-Modelica/
      • <install.root>/modelLibraries/OMG SysML-Modelica/
    • Save the modules above as indicated.
    • You can save the modelica-sysml_profile_and_examples_v0.18.mdzip project anywhere.
  • * A modelica class definition of some kind maps to a SysML class of some «SysML4Modelica::ModelicaClassDefinition» kind.
  • * Modelica class extension maps to SysML class generalization + redefinition.
