Sirius Community Survey 2017 Results

In general, users of Open Source projects like Sirius tend to only interact with the project when they have problems, or once in a while to thank us (which is always greatly appreciated!). It can be difficult to find out who is using the project, how they use it, and what they would like to see in future versions. Last October (during SiriusCon 2017), we released the first ever Sirius Community Su...

Capella Add-ons: Collaborate better + Generate Docs

When Capella was made open source in 2014, feedback was collected from early users and adopters. The feedback showed several topics were important to the open source community. First and foremost, users wanted to learn how to efficiently collaborate on a single Capella model and minimize configuration and version management problems. Second, users wanted to generate their documentation efficiently...

Eclipse Sirius, the technology behind Capella

As the state-of-the-art engineering tool vendors did not provide the appropriate offer, Thales decided in 2007 to develop its own Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) method and workbench. This initiative resulted in Arcadia and Capella. To reduce the complexity and the cost of developing such a custom modeling tool, Thales worked with Obeo to create a new technology that could facilitate the cr...
