The present complex engineering systems development usually adopts the Model-based System Engineering (MBSE) approach. According to the MBSE approach, the architecture model will be separately established in all MBSE stages (requirement definition, functional analysis, logical design, physical design) (see Figure 2-1) to describe and guide the design and evolution path of the system at different stages from the top perspective. Traditional SysML-based system architecture design tools have the following application problems:

MWorks.Sysbuilder is a model-based system architecture design tool for complex engineering systems. With system requirements as input and according to the top-down system development process, it covers the design process of conceptual architecture, functional architecture and logical architecture of the system in a graphical, structured and object-oriented manner and, through close integration with MWorks.Sysplorer, helps to realize comprehensive analysis and verification of multiple fields in the early stage of system design.
