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

Mettler Toledo AG

„I would recommend Rhapsody anytime – by using Rhapsody I can reach a new level of programming and efficiency.“

Wolfgang Boos

Head Software Development

Bernina International AG

„The architecture must be set up in the right way and in conformity with the requirements of model driven development – right from the beginning! I strongly recommend to seek for the support of an external, experienced Rhapsody specialist as for example supplied by EVOCEAN and to model the architecture together.“

Giovanni Annunzio

System Architect

Commentaire sur nos formation – Rhapsody

Le formateur a été très bien préparé, a une excellente vue d'ensemble et une connaissance approfondie de l'outil et des processus et méthodes environnants (A-Spice).

"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

„In earlier days, we launched one new product model every year – today several thanx to re-use, which also reduces the time needed for testing significantly."

Giovanni Annunzio

System Architect

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

"Die direkte Kopplung von Design und Code mit Rhapsody hilft uns, die Komplexität unserer Produkte einfacher zu managen, da Design und Code langfristig konsistent bleiben".

Andreas Anderegg

Senior Software Engineer

Kern AG

„Even if the change to Rhapsody required at first additional investment and effort – we have never regretted our decision. The fully automatic code generation from the model makes our life easier!“

Andreas Dubach

Head of Development Systems
