Bridging Systems Engineering and Multi-Fidelity Analytical Models
Presenters: Steve Cash, Alexandre Luc, and Brian Selvy
Systems engineering in all industries has been increasingly turning to Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) to meet market expectations. This helps in designing ever more complex systems while reducing development cost and time, maximizing system performance, and improving product safety. By aligning people, processes, and technology around a single product vision, MBSE promises to dramatically reduce the cost and risk of developing complex systems.
The challenge is connecting systems engineering architectural models to detailed engineering analytics to achieve the full potential of MBSE.
We will discuss an approach to unlock the promise of MBSE by connecting a Vitech GENESYS system model with analysis/simulation models and workflows, assuring that the product vision remains in sync with the underlying analysis throughout the product lifecycle. This allows engineers to validate verify requirements, simulate system behavior, and carry out Multi-Disciplinary Analysis & Optimization (MDAO) to optimize system design at any time during the design process. Rigorous traceability between requirements, design, and analysis results in improved quality.
