"SysML based Architectural design"

What do you like best?

Rhapsody provides an elaborate GUI for Systems modelling.

I have been a user for last 4 years and the following aspects interest me:

1.Harmony SE process : we can trace a requirement from concept to code using the exclusive profile meant for SysML

2.Simulink Integration : We can import a simulink model in rhapsody and generate the code from it.

3.Rhapsody Eclipse Integration : Probably the best feature of Rhapsody is that it can be used inside eclipse as a perspective. We can Know the code behind every Model element.

4. Java APIs : Another best aspect is that we can automate practically everything using Rhapsody Java APIs

What do you dislike?

I would say I suggest nothing to improve in it.( read "its costly" )

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use it in Architecture design of Automotive embedded systems and products.

I find it easy to use and modular as it is OO based.

We can make a layman understand the mechanism behind the code using its diagrams (flowcharts and Statecharts,requirement diagrams etc)

"Best Tool for Executable Model Based Engineering"

What do you like best?

I like the executable modelling capability the best. This capability is unparalleled by other modelling tools.

What do you dislike?

It is very expensive, and kind of clunky. It has a lot of functionality, but is complex to use. Sometimes it is hard to find the capability you're looking for.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You can't go wrong with Rhapsody if you can afford the best. It provides robust capability, executable modelling capability, support, and a variety of languages. Model based engineering is the way of the future and Rhapsody is the best tool to provide help with this.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Model Based Systems Engineering. We are able to build executable models of our system, and embed real code to get a running model rather than a model with just static diagrams.

What Other Design solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"clunky but works"

What do you like best?

It is organized in a way that no matter how many updates it still feels the same and familiar. Things work, and their product team is ready to assist if there are any issues.

What do you dislike?

However there is still features that it lacks and or is hard to find. It doesn't take too much time to get started but it takes a lot of time to really get used to it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

activity diagrams showcasing how things are processed and how things are broken down etc

"Makes System development a complete process."

What do you like best?

Not only does the tool suite provide all things needed for the SysML architecture definition, it provides a compatibility (well, yes, IBM tools such as RTC, DNG) which makes development a more structured approach. Additionally this allows interfacing as an MBD tool ahead too.

What do you dislike?

Help needs work on. Starting out and being new to SysML/UML, the tool might not be the best tutorial.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Good tool for development

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Development of ADAS systems on tool. This has provided a structure to a new project which can be reused in other projects.

"It quirky but good"

What do you like best?

Everything flows well when trying to put things together. The connections you can make when analyzing systems if clear.

What do you dislike?

It feels outdated for what is needed from it. It is like and html style that could be improved.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It takes some time to learn how it works but it is possible.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

During system analysis making databases is easy with this product. You can really see how everything connects together

"Good for MBE, but is very dated"

What do you like best?

The ability to drag IER type objects (i.e. messages) from the hierarchy view onto a sequence diagram; requirements diagrams for legacy teams are also very useful. Additionally, importing information from external files is fairly straightforward.

What do you dislike?

The product is extremely dated; Rational Rhapsody Designer is much a better IBM product for modelling.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Look at Rational Rhapsody Designer first.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Transitioning older teams to using MBE w/Rational Rhapsody products. Once teams are synchronized, keeping models updated and having everyone on the same page makes the SE process much smoother.

"IBM Rhapsody"

What do you like best?

I like the fact that you can put action language behind activities to auto generate sequence diagrams. Tool offers ability to create an executable model.

What do you dislike?

Tool is able to generate XMI but the XMI does translate well with other tools.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Rhaosody is more expensive than other UML/SysML tools like Sparx EA and NoMagic MagicDraw so make sure to evaluate your needs to see if the higher price tag makes sense.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We used it to create sysml models including activity and sequence diagrams plus DoDAF diagrams for an Information Support Plan.

"Quick to realize as when you design"

What do you like best?

Quick realisation of requirment into a executable driven requirment.

What do you dislike?

Code generation & cross platform or technology usability

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I was able to realize requirements from a paper based technology to a executable driven requirment which helped my team understand in better way along with executable sequence diagram and state diagram.
