Papyrus is an industrial-grade open source Model-Based Engineering tool. Papyrus has notably been used successfully in industrial projects and is the base platform for several industrial modeling tools. As part of Polarsys (the Industrial Working Group of Eclipse), Papyrus has become a PolarSys Solution. In addition, in order to federate the industrial needs and efforts on MBE, a Papyrus Industry Consortium has been setup. Papyrus being open source has become the natural choice in academia for both teaching and research purposes.
The platform has implemented the following standards: UML 2.5.0, SysML 1.1 & 1.4, OCL 2.3.1, fUML 1.1, ALF 1.0.1, MARTE 1.1 (incubation), EAST-ADL (incubation), RobotML (incubation), UML-RT (incubation) and ISO/IEC 42010. Moreover, to address any specific domain, every part of Papyrus may be customized: UML profile, model explorer, diagram notation and style, properties views, palette and creation menus, and much more.
Papyrus therefore enables model-based techniques like model-based simulation, model-based formal testing, safety analysis, performance/trade-offs analysis and architecture exploration. Papyrus is a graphical editing tool for UML 2 as defined by OMG and it targets to implement 100% of the OMG specifications. It provides editors for all the UML diagrams. It also provides complete support to SysML in order to enable model-based system engineering. Specific tabular and graphical editors required for SysML are available.
Furthermore, thanks to Moka, Papyrus can execute models using a rich and extensible animation and simulation framework. Also, as graphical modeling is not always the best way to specify the behavior of executable models, Papyrus provides a textual notation edition with syntax highlight, completion and content assist.
