Northrop Grumman Defines Interfaces Efficiently and Consistently | Using SysML


One of the key aspects of describing systems using SysML is identifying and defining interfaces, both internal and external. SysML provides a multitude of ways to describe interface information. At Northrop Grumman, we’ve identified and deployed an approach that allows us to reuse the same interface information on multiple types of diagrams, thus ensuring consistency across the design.

This presentation covers the desired results that drove the need for this approach, how the approach was developed, examples of how the interfaces are used on multiple diagram types, and our experiences on different programs. A discussion of how this is deployed using IBM Rhapsody is included.

We have helped our clients:
  • Increase productivity by 25-75%
  • Reduce development costs by 50-60%
  • Accelerate time to market by 20-40%

SAFe provided the agility, visibility, and transparency needed to ensure we could integrate with numerous other efforts, get predictable in our delivery, and ensure timelines are met.
