Systems Architecture Modeling with the Arcadia Method: Practical Guide to Capella shows how to perform systems engineering to yield a greater return on investment than the traditional document-based approach. The CAPELLA workbench is a new Eclipse application implementing the Arcadia method, providing both a modeling language and toolset dedicated to guidance, productivity and quality. Intuitive model editing and viewing capabilities help engineers focus on the design and description of the system and its architecture. This book is the first to help readers discover CAPELLA, with the companion book about Arcadia in the same collection.

Key Features

  • Describes the tooled implementation of the Arcadia method
  • Highlights the toolset widely deployed on operational projects in all Thales domains worldwide (defense, aerospace, transportation, etc.)
  • Emphasizes the author’s pedagogical experience on the methods and the tools gained through conducting more than 80 training sessions for a thousand engineers at Thales University
  • Examines the emergence of an ecosystem of organizations, including industries that would drive the Capella roadmap according to operational needs, service and technology suppliers who would develop their business around the solution, and academics who would pave the future of the engineering ecosystem

About the Author

Pascal Roques

Pascal Roques is a senior consultant and trainer who have been modeling for more than twenty-five years in various domains. He began with SADT and OMT, and then moved to UML (OCUP Advanced Certification) and RUP in Valtech, where he was in charge of the Modeling part of the training catalog. Pascal is now working on his own at PRFC (, mainly in the field of Systems Modeling. He published several books on UML and SysML in French. He is also trainer for Thales University on Model Based Systems Engineering with ARCADIA method and Capella tool. Since 2008, he has conducted over eighty MBSE training courses in France and abroad for more than a thousand Thales engineers.
