As an open standard Architecture Description Language (ADL) for Systems Engineering applications, SysML is the Model-Based Language of choice for many MBSE endeavors. However, if you don't choose and apply the other key enabling MBSE technologies properly (Modeling Tools, Model-Based Processes, and Model-Based Architecture Frameworks) your MBSE project will likely achieve poor or mixed results.
