State machines are very powerful modelling tools and engineers use them in their daily tasks for maybe 60+ years regardless of the product domain. They are used for very diverse analysis needs and at any level of a product hierarchy.
It seems to me that there is a case for state machines to be better integrated in the Arcadia methodology with the rest of the modelling concepts.
So far from what I can see through the use of Capella, as I don’t have access to a conceptual data model for Arcadia, State Machines can be specified for:
- Operational Analysis level: an Operation Entity; a Class
- System Analysis level: a System Component; a Class
- Logical Architecture level: a Logical Component; a Class
- Physical Architecture level: a Physical Component; a Class
I would like to be able to add state machines to Functions and Capabilities (regardless of the level they exist).
Is it possible to configure this with Capella?
