Abstract—In system-level design, descriptive system models seem to be insufficient in order to perform a system verification which fulfills various stakeholders’ requirements. This fact is accentuated by the increasing complexity of system engineering projects and, as a consequence, the difficulties to deal with both their coordination and traceability. Even if SysML (System Modeling Language) is considered as a flexible and standard tool for system engineering, using only descriptive models are insufficient for system behavior verifications. To deal with this concern, simulation environments (i.e. MATLAB/Simulink) allow verifying if the system preliminary design satisfies requirements or not. As a consequence, various research works have been centered on combining the potential of both SysML modeling and simulation tools. This paper proposes an integration approach based on meta modeling and model transformations to generate Simulink models from SysML diagrams. This approach is handled by models and modern techniques of MDE (Model-Driven Engineering).

Index Terms—MDE, model transformation, profiles, Simulation, simulink, SysML, system engineering.
