IBM Rational Rhapsody Model Based Systems Engineering Workflow

Within a span of three days, you learn the Harmony workflow for model-based development and you use the Rational Rhapsody Systems Engineering toolkit to follow the workflow through the hands-on development of a model. The automation features of the Systems Engineering Toolkit drastically reduce the time it takes to build large complex models while the formal systematic approach ensures a robust design. You are guided through the Systems Engineering workflow and you follow the workflow in Rhapsody. The workflow includes best practices for building models in the Requirements Analysis, Functional Analysis, Design Synthesis and handoff phase. The workflow used to create models is explained and experienced through a hands-on exercise using the Systems Engineering toolkit.
