One of the most important tools for a systems engineer is their system model. From
this model, engineering decisions can be made without costly integration, fabrication,
or installations. Existing system modeling languages used to create the system model
are detailed and comprehensive, but lack a true ability to unify the system model by
showing all relationships among all components in the model. Higraphs, a type of
mathematical graph, allow systems engineers to not only represent all required
information in a system model, but to formally show all relationships in the model
through hierarchies, edges, and orthogonalities. With a higraph system model, all
relationships between system requirements, components, and behaviors are
formalized allowing for a "smart" model that can be queried for custom sets of
