Capella is a model-based engineering solution that leverages the Eclipse platform to implement an adaptable and extensible workbench. Natively supporting an innovative Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) approach based on both industrial experimentations and system engineers’ feedback, it can be customized to fit the specific needs of many industrial domains.
Made open source in 2014, a vibrant ecosystem as grown with Capella: companies developing complex systems and softwares, suppliers providing offers on the top of Capella, academics with a MBSE topic for research need.
Beyond the Capella workbench solution, the members of this new ecosystem identified the need for a place where they could:
- foster collaborations,
- share investment and best practices,
- leverage Open Innovation to co-develop new MBSE capabilities.
This is precisely the aim of the Eclipse Working Group initiative: to allow organizations to combine the best practices of open source development with the possibility to foster industry collaborations and build a strong ecosystem.
The Capella Industry Consortium (IC) has therefore been created as a new Working Group to develop the Capella ecosystem with vendor-neutral and open governance. The scope of this Working Group focuses on the Capella tool, the add-ons and the underlying technologies.
Five organizations are currently part of the Capella IC: Thales, Artal, Obeo, PRFC and Tecnalia... Read the full article on the original web site
