Capella – MapleMBSE – MBSE Made Easier – Maplesoft

MapleMBSE for Capella

MapleMBSE is an Excel-based tool that provides a tight integration with Capella, allowing all stakeholders across your entire organization to collaborate in the systems engineering process.

Why Choose MapleMBSE for your Next Project?

Here are just some of the ways that MapleMBSE streamlines the management of project requirements when using Capella.

Easy-to-use Excel-based UI for Systems Engineering

MapleMBSE gives your project stakeholders an intuitive, Excel®-based interface for easily entering system definitions without having to be an expert in systems modeling or Capella.

  • Task-specific views for requirements list, functional requirements matrix, use cases, and more
  • Easily work with your model by using familiar Excel features such as hiding columns, sorting lists, and autofill
  • MapleMBSE is automatically populated with all of the relevant information from the systems model
  • All changes made within MapleMBSE are automatically synchronized with your common model/centralized model/system model/or similar


Allows all stakeholders to contribute to the Systems Engineering process

With MapleMBSE, you don’t need to be a systems engineering expert to contribute to the process. Task-specific views are excel-based and show each stakeholder only what they need to see.

  • Stakeholders using MapleMBSE only see the information relative to their task, reducing clutter and making engagement easier
  • Get buy-in easier with an Excel-based interface already familiar to virtually every stakeholder
  • Tasks can be completed entirely within MapleMBSE, removing the need for stakeholders to use their primary MBSE tool
  • A live connection to your primary SE tool allows systems engineers to easily collaborate with other stakeholders

Simplifies information-entry, reducing risk of errors

MapleMBSE allows you to use natural language and numerical inputs to reduce errors associated with the complex entry mechanisms of MBSE tools.

  • Stakeholders can work using a simplified Excel-based interface that automatically detects certain errors
  • Use Excel features like autofill, spellcheck, and equation checking to ensure simple errors are prevented
  • Users can lock model elements to prevent further changes, and locks are synchronized between MapleMBSE and your primary tool
  • Automatic detection of duplicates to reduce the risk of simple errors propagating in your model definitions

Offers rapid customization of model views and data integration

Because every systems engineering project is different, MapleMBSE allows you to provide customized model views that best suit the task at hand.

  • Standard task views can be fully customized to suit your organization’s practices
  • Systems engineers can create custom model views for each stakeholder within their organization
  • Customized model views are automatically synchronized with your primary SE tool
  • Maplesoft Engineering Solutions provides consultation and services to create custom deployments of MapleMBSE
Validating your Capella Model with MapleMBSE

In this webinar you'll learn about the Query Path Expression (QPE) facility in MapleMBSE, a powerful tool for checking model quality, using custom queries to check consistency and detect model elements that violate rules set for your process.

Simplifying MBSE Tasks with Capella and MapleMBSE

In this webinar, see how to work with a Capella systems model using MapleMBSE. The demonstration will highlight how all stakeholders can collaborate through the systems model using task-specific, Excel-based interfaces found in MapleMBSE.

Fast Requirements changes using MapleMBSE and the Capella Requirements Viewpoint add-on

The latest MapleMBSE release provides support for the Capella Requirements Viewpoint add-on. This short video shows the MapleMBSE interface and workflow.

Working with the Requirements Viewpoint add-on, produced by Thales, MapleMBSE allows bulk updates, makes it easier to manage the status changes of requirements and ensures the SMEs see up-to-date versions of the systems information.
