Bridging Systems Engineering and Multi-Fidelity Analytical Models using ModelCenter MBSE

Bridging Systems Engineering and Multi-Fidelity Analytical Models using ModelCenter MBSE

System engineers in all industries have been increasingly turning to Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) to meet market expectations. This helps them 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 the gap between systems engineers and engineering analysts that prevents MBSE from achieving its full potential.

We will discuss a new approach to unlock the promise of MBSE by connecting a Vitech GENESYS system model with any analysis/simulation models or workflows, assuring that the product vision remains in sync with the underlying analysis throughout the product lifecycle. This allows engineers to validate 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.

This presentation will use the example of an auto-injector for medication delivery to demonstrate how engineers can use ModelCenter to automate the execution of multiple engineering analysis tools and to create unified and reusable automated simulation workflows.  This includes a description of how the analysis tools are executed, and how data is automatically linked between tools as needed. We will then show how engineers can use ModelCenter MBSE with GENESYS to connect the automated workflows to a system architecture model to ensure an end-to-end requirements traceability.
