Modelling LANs and VLANS in sysml
« on: August 04, 2021, 01:10:04 am »
Hi All,

In regards to modelling a computer network with subsystems communicating over a LAN and VLAN my idea is to represent each of the LANs/VLANs using an interface blocks that type any ports attached to part properties that represent networked components.

The alternate I guess would be to represent each LAN as a standard block with an in and out port and include an IBD that displays all subsystems connected to both ports to show messages are passed in and out.

I still need to get over the conceptual barrier I'm facing with this one. Please let me know what you think of the above and if you have any anecdotes or know of any exampled networked systems modelled in sysML that would be useful.

Many thanks

Ryan

IITC the EA Example model had a part where that is modeled. I also seem to remember that it wasn't that bad ;-)

Hi qwerty, thanks, the only example model I found was the distiller example. Do you know where I can find this one?

Thanks

Ray
