Abstract—With the increase of the level of integration and complexity of new systems it is mandatory to ensure system architects collaborate closely with all the disciplines involved in complex system design. Models enable such fruitful collaboration. Like industrial product development, research and technology activities require the use of models to support processes and methods. This holds true even if the development assurance level required is less than the one expected for an industrial program. In this context SAFRAN decided to evaluate the Papyrus open source SysML modeler. During the first stage, the tool has been deployed straight out of the box (with a support to end users), but it faced strong rejection. All the associated issues have been captured so as to specify a customization on top of Papyrus. This customization is based on a SysML profile and is tailored for our specific SAFRAN processes and methods. It required several steps, before the end users fully agreed to use this modeler. In this paper, we show how it is implemented within Papyrus by demonstrating how a toy example of a lightweight quadcopter drone is modeled.
