for No Magic

More specifically, the Bridge allows users to:

  • Use PLE mechanisms to manage the diversity for a full product line in a single, consolidated Model Based Engineering (MBE) model, as a highly scalable alternative to cloned copies or one-size-fits-all UML and SysML models.
  • Automatically configure MagicDraw models for different products by making feature choices in a Gears feature profile.
  • Convert MagicDraw model elements and properties into Gears variation points to encapsulate the PLE diversity for that model element or property, without extending or complicating UML and SysML models.
  • Use one or more MagicDraw models – either packages or projects – in a larger collection of shared assets across the full engineering lifecycle for a product line portfolio.
  • Perform integrated PLE operations – such as product configuration, variation point editing and variation impact analysis – directly from MagicDraw menus.
