Overview of IBM Harmony Training for System Engineering Practitioners:

Within three days you will get to know the Harmony workflow for Model Based Systems Engineering and gain practical experience with IBM Rhapsody.

The IBM Harmony Systems Engineering workflow includes best practices for creating models in the requirements analysis, functional analysis, design synthesis and handover phases.  Using the Rhapsody Systems Engineering Toolkit, you will be guided through the systems engineering workflow with practical examples and create your own system model. The automation features of the Systems Engineering Toolkit, which are included in Rhapsody, drastically help you to reduce the time required to create and maintain complex models and the associated formal systematic approach ensures a robust design.

Objectives of this IBM Harmony Training for Systems Engineering Practitioners:

  • Process needs for applying Model Based Systems Engineering effectively
  • Create a project in IBM Rhapsody using the Systems Engineering toolkit and workflow
  • Import requirements into IBM Rhapsody and link Use Cases to System Requirements
  • Capture the Use Case functional flow in Sequence and Activity diagram
  • Define interfaces using Blocks and Ports
  • Describe the system behavior using state machines
  • Define an architecture using Internal Block Diagrams and Block Definition Diagrams
  • Allocate system functionality to architecture by decomposing the black box activity views
  • Verify and validate the model through model execution
  • Define a model-based hand-off

Target audience

  • Project Managers
  • System Engineers
  • Software-level System-Engineers
  • Software Engineers interested in Systems Engineering
  • Systems architects and engineers.
  • Requirements engineers.
  • Interested persons in MBSE or Rhapsody for Systems Engineering.
  • Technical Leaders evaluating new ways of developing software.


  • Systems Engineering experience or interest.
  • Basic know-how of SysML is an advantage but not mandatory.

Course Outline – Topics covered

You will get an effective introduction to Systems Engineering, SysML and Rhapsody. The Topics covered are as follows:

  • Requirements analysis and traceability
  • Use case scenarios
  • Defining Functional flow using sequence and activity diagrams
  • Modeling ports and interfaces
  • Modeling system behavior using state machines
  • Verification and validation through model execution
  • Merging the functional model into an architectural model
  • Allocation of function to structure
  • Hand-off of a subsystem

Customers about our services

Perforce Helix Customer sold to global leading company.

"Perforce Helix Core fully meets our expectations. We have a solution from one source on which we can rely."

Head of Product Development

Bernina International AG

„Thanks to the models we can visualise new functions and dependencies. A picture says more than a 1'000 words and the graphically modelled abstraction makes life much easier for us developers. At the same time, the automatic code generation based on the models takes over a substantial part of our work!“

Giovanni Annunzio

System Architect

Hamilton Medical AG

„Employing our platform strategy and Model Driven Development with IBM Rhapsody® enables us to bring our innovations rapidly to numerous ventilation solutions.“

Gion Durisch

„Starting to use Rational Rhapsody®without coaching or training is not recommended. Understanding the why behind certain processes is essential to working effectively. Training with EVOCEAN was very valuable for me in this regard."

Vitali Mozgovoi

Software Developer

Schindler Elevator Ltd.

„Seamless integration of the development environment is one of our critical success criteria. Model Driven Development with Rational Rhapsody®allows us to generate the code for the target platform direct from the UML model. Integrating the debugger saves us enormous amounts of time in developing complex, embedded real-time applications. Thanks to EVOCEAN's support, today we can use this tool efficiently."

Juan Carlos Abad

Project Manager

Mettler Toledo AG

„Now the advantages of our solid foundation work will have a large impact. A model is easy to adapt and maintain and new functions can be integrated very fast. In combination with the automatic code generation and testing we now will be strikingly faster… with a consistent high quality. Today we save time and money – not least thanks to IBM Rational Rhapsody!"
