Getting Started with Innoslate

  1. 1. innoslate.com specinnovations.com Getting Started with Innoslate® Realize successful, smarter systems with Innoslate the full lifecycle systems engineering tool
  2. 2. The Full Lifecycle in One Tool
  3. 3. One View Automatically Produces Many Views • Functional Views • Physical Views • Requirements Views
  4. 4. View Auto-Generation Gives You • Simplicity: Learn just the LML Action Diagram, LML Asset Diagram, and Requirements View to generate 15+ diagrams and matrices automatically • Accuracy: All diagrams and views are automatically synced with each other to prevent model errors and inconsistencies • Efficiency: Manually create fewer diagrams while automatically generating diagrams difficult to generate manually • Enforce standards: Diagrams in Innoslate adhere to the LML, SysML, and/or best practices to ensure compliance across the project
  5. 5. Getting Started with Innoslate
  6. 6. Innoslate Security • All connections are SSL encrypted in transit • New files uploaded are 128bit AES encrypted at rest • All developers in Northern Virginia • Public cloud provider has the following security certifications: • ISO 27001:2005 • SAS70 Type II • SSAE 16 Type II • ISAE 3402 Type II • Innoslate Enterprise can be deployed locally behind your firewall. • Amazon Gov Cloud • NSERC (SIPR and NIPR) 6
  7. 7. System Requirements • Platform Independent • Works on Windows XP/7/8/RT, MAC OS X, Linux, iOS, Android • Software • Any modern web browser (Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, IE 10 or 11) • No downloads required 7
  8. 8. CONOPS/Use Case Development
  9. 9. Use Cases • Use Case Diagram • Used to list use cases • Action or Activity Diagram • Used to create executable processes • Use discrete event and/or Monte Carlo simulators
  10. 10. Simulate Your Scenario Explore the variation of individual steps to execute the model over many iterations using the Monte Carlo Simulator Watch scenario execute at all levels using the Discrete Event Simulator
  11. 11. Architecture-Based CONOPS Document • Use CONOPS templates in Documents View to create a detailed CONOPS document based on the architecture of your system • Use this living document throughout the lifecycle
  12. 12. Requirements Management
  13. 13. Import Originating Artifacts • Select “Import Analyzer” • Automatically identifies potential requirements vs. statements that provide context 13
  14. 14. Use Traceability Spider Diagram to link between Requirements, Actions and Assets • Shows how a single entity (database object) is related to the rest of the system • Drag and drop new entities and create relationships right from the diagram 14
  15. 15. Generate Specifications from the Model 15 Implements the way to go from MBSE to a specification.
  16. 16. Integration and Test Support
  17. 17. Innoslate Supports the I&T Phase • Documents View has Test Plan templates already available • Test results from other tools can also be captured as Artifacts and traced back to requirements, use cases, and CONOPS • You can analyze and enhance your test processes and procedures using the functional analysis tools available
  18. 18. Build the Asset Diagram to Capture Interfaces 18 Create a classic block diagram … … or add pictures and special lines for concept diagram
  19. 19. Or Use the Internal Block Diagram or Physical I/O Diagram • SysML IBD provides ports and interfaces • Physical I/O diagram shows data flows with physical entities (Assets) • Will automatically set up Conduits between Assets and allocate the I/Os to those Conduits
  20. 20. Program Management • Risk Management • Configuration Management • Issue Tracking
  21. 21. Develop the Project Management Plan in Innoslate • Now the plan elements can be directly related to requirements, risks, decisions, and business processes • Output as MS Word Document 21
  22. 22. Conduct Model-Based Project Management • All modern (last 60 years) business approaches emphasize process modeling • Includes identification of products (deliverables) and resources
  23. 23. Derive the Schedule • Use the processes to develop realistic schedules • Automatically captures simulation results as Artifacts for comparison and documentation • Cost and resource reports
  24. 24. Derive Schedule, Cost, Time, and more
  25. 25. Capture Risks and Conduct Risk Analysis • Identify risks as part of the overall requirements, functional and physical analyses • Trace the sources of risk to these analyses 25
  26. 26. Functional Architecture and Sequence Diagrams
  27. 27. Build an Action Diagram to Easily Model Scenarios or Business Processes • Functional modeling • sequencing and data flow, with allocation and resource modeling explicit • Drag/drop capable • Executable in both Discrete Event and Monte Carlo simulators 27
  28. 28. Or Use the Sequence Diagram • Functional sequencing • Another view from the database, not a separate “drawing” • Can generate from Action Diagram or be used to generate an Action Diagram • Also, drag and drop capable, with sidebar for information on entities
  29. 29. And the IDEF0 Diagram • Classic data flow modeling • Drag and drop • Sidebar enabled • ICOM view also available
  30. 30. DoDAF Architecture
  31. 31. DoDAF Dashboard • Access to all DoDAF products • DM2 Statistics • PES export DM2 = DoDAF MetaModel 2.0
  32. 32. Tool Comparisons Innoslate vs. SysML Drawing Tool • Automatic diagram generation (Develop a few diagrams and automatically generate many diagrams; saving time and increasing accuracy) • Large scalability (Innoslate Cloud - thousands of users around the world across many servers; Innoslate Enterprise - tested for 500 users and 10 million objects) • Complete requirements tool (replace and exceed DOORS capabilities) • Complete simulation capability (simulators in other tools only provide a step logic checker; Innoslate has analytical Discrete Event and Monte Carlo simulators that provide cost, schedule, and performance information) • Real-Time Collaboration (Real time updates, group chat, and project dashboard) • Platform Independent (Works on Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS, Android, Chrome OS) • Availability (Public Cloud @ innoslate.com, NIPRNet on NSERC, SIPRNet on NSERC, Amazon GovCloud, Amazon AWS, Private Server at your data center)
  33. 33. Tool Comparison Innoslate vs. Requirement Tools • Advanced quality analysis (Integrated Natural Language Parsing technology scores and recommends improvements to requirements) • Integrated standard modeling capability (LML and SysML capability integrated; Hierarchy, Tree, Spider, and SysML Requirement diagrams are autogenerated from the document) • Integrated simulation capability (Innoslate has analytical Discrete Event and Monte Carlo simulators that provide cost, schedule, and performance information) • Large scalability (Innoslate Cloud - thousands of users around the world across many servers; Innoslate Enterprise - tested for 500 users and 10 million objects) • Real-Time Collaboration (Real time updates, group chat, and project dashboard) • Platform Independent (Works on Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS, Android, Chrome OS) • Availability (Public Cloud @ innoslate.com, NIPRNet on NSERC, SIPRNet on NSERC, Amazon GovCloud, Amazon AWS)
