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...

Capella Industry Consortium

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...

Why Capella? Taking on the Challenges of Complex Systems Engineering

In a world moving at an ever faster pace, Capella is an open and field-proven approach to address increasing complexity in systems architecture and solve the limitations of traditional engineering practices that are primarily driven by documents. Launched in 2007 by Thales, this initiative resulted in the definition of Arcadia, an engineering metho...
