These systems may include hardware, software, information, processes, personnel, and facilities.
• SysML is a dialect of UML 2, and is defined as a UML 2 Profile (UML customization that defines language extensions via Stereotypes, Tagged Values, and Constraints.)
• SysML is an enabling technology for Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE)
