We are proud to announce the launch of SLIM 1.0. This is the first major public release of SLIM, following the beta release in Dec 2013. We take this opportunity to thank all our partners and customers who have made this possible.

SLIM 1.0 provides a broad range of capabilities for model-based systems engineering (MBSE). System engineers can develop and maintain a unified model of the system (Total System Model) that includes the system architecture model in SysML connected to requirements, detailed design, and part information in Teamcenter, Windchill PLM systems and MySQL databases. SLIM also provides extensive model transformation, comparison, and sync capabilities, enabling system engineers to reuse existing requirements and part designs managed in PLM systems and databases in developing the system-of-systems architecture model (SysML). Alternatively, system engineers can seed new requirement structures, part structures, and libraries in PLM systems and databases from the SysML architecture model. Compare and sync capabilities make it possible to generate diff tables and bi-directionally sync the architecture model (SysML) with PLM and database model elements, as they all evolve simultaneously in a collaborative multi-repository environment. Integration to Excel – similar capabilities as with MySQL – makes it easy for system engineers to start managing libraries of parts used in their system architecture with a relatively low cost and infrastructure footprint.

SLIM 1.0 is currently available as a plugin for MagicDraw (No Magic) and Rational Rhapsody (IBM) SysML modeling platforms. Both floating and node locked licenses are available. Contact us for SLIM license and pricing information.
