To model Systems using SysML in Enterprise Architect, you work through the following steps:

Create a Systems Engineering model to develop your system
Create a Requirements model to define the systems requirements and expectations
Create an Operational Domain model, which describes the environment that the system operates within, and the entities it interacts with
Create Constraint models to describe the systems operating characteristics using parametric models
Simulate the parametric models to verify their correctness and obtain the desired characteristic
Design the system's composition using SysML Blocks and Parts
Implement the embedded software using UML Classes and behavioral models
Create a Library of reusable SysML blocks, representing subsystems that can be reused on other projects, and other common Type definitions
