We released Cradle-7.1.1 on 7th June 2016, an update to the Cradle-7.1 release that added SysML to the MBSE notations available in Cradle's integrated modelling tools. Cradle-7.1.1:
Full details are in the release notes installed with the Cradle-7.1.1 installation. You can download the release notes here.
Security Codes for Cradle-7.1 will work with Cradle-7.1.1. If you have a single-user Cradle-7.1 system, such as Cradle-SE Pro, then you can also upgrade to Cradle-7.1.1.
If you install Cradle-7.1.1 anywhere, please install it everywhere!
3SL will be attending the INCOSE International Symposium held in Edinburgh in the UK between 18th and 21st July 2016. Full details of the event can be found here.
If you are able to travel to Edinburgh, we will be delighted to meet you during the event at our stand B4. Further details can be found here.
В первой части дается введение в демо-проект и интерфейс Cradle.
Вторая часть о том, как загрузить готовую схему проекта и о том, какой самой простой схемой разработки и трассировки требований можно воспользоваться
О разработке и трассировке требований в третьей части вебинара "3SL Cradle - быстрый старт". А также лирические отступления на тему, кому не нужен Cradle и ответы на вопросы участников.
В четвертой части о том, как загрузить дополнительные требования заказчика из документа Word.
Пятая часть познакомит вас с тем, как быстро создать Use Cases на основе новых требований заказчика, загруженных из документа. А также как оценить стоимость релиза и настроить свое иерархическое представление исходных требований.
Детализируем проектные решения с помощью моделей - об этом в части 6: как создать UML-модель и связать ее созданными ранее текстовыми Use Cases.
В последней 7-ой части можно посмотреть как генерируется итоговая спецификация требований для разработчиков на конкретный релиз
3SL in the US have posted a series of videos demonstrating the SysML support in Cradle-7.1. This is a single demonstration, split into a series of parts. You can access these videos here.
These videos show how SysML models are built, and how SysML models can be integrated into other information, such as requirements, tests, test cases, defects, issues and risks.
At 3SL we believe that MBSE is an excellent approach to defining the architecture and behaviour of a system (whichever notations you choose to use) but only if it is integrated into all of the other information in your project.
MBSE in isolation is just a collection of pretty pictures!
Trees are a common way to explore the information in a database:
Cradle has a default for the labels of the nodes in these trees. This default uses an item’s Identity, Name, Key, Version and Draft attributes. This label may not be what you want to see, particularly if:
You can control the contents of labels in tree nodes. To do this:
Now when any user sees any items of this type in any tree, the labels for these tree nodes will only contain the information defined by the view.
You can hide items of information by arranging that a user has no access to them.
You can also hide entire item types, so that all items of this type are hidden from some specific users even if, under normal circumstances, they would have read-only or read-write access to the items. For example, you may want all members of a team to have read-write access to each other’s’ information, except that only some users should be able to see items in the CBS (cost breakdown structure).
You can do this with skills by:
Only the users who have the new skill will be aware that the item type even exists in the database. All other users will not see the item type in the Project sidebar, nor in the Item Chooser, nor anywhere else in the UI of any Cradle tool. Also, of course, users without the skill will never see items of this item type in anything that they do in Cradle, including running queries, looking at linked items, publishing reports, generating metrics, graphs or dashboards, or any operations in the CM system.
We need a software engineer to join the Cradle development team in our offices in Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria, UK, to contribute to the specification, design and build of the current and next generation of Cradle products.
If you are interested, please see here where you can download details of the opportunity.
If you have no idea where Barrow-in-Furness is and you are curious, see here!
We propose to start a series of regular, open, webinars in which 3SL staff will be available to answer your questions about 3SL and Cradle. The dates and times of the webinars will be listed in our website and anyone will be welcome to attend. They will be timed to allow as many people to connect as possible, wherever you may be based. The webinars will be in English.
The webinars will be one hour and can include any technical or commercial topics. We may propose some specific topic(s) for the webinar, but the emphasis will primarily be on an opportunity to get answers to your questions.
If you have any opinion on this proposal, please send us an e-mail here.
