The State of Simulation Driven Design

Have we made the transition to using simulation to drive design decisions? Chad Jackson shares some research that says we’re not quite there yet.

MapleMBSE: What is it? What’s the value?

Democratization has long been an issue with MBSE initiatives. Systems engineers develop carefully crafted architectures. Yet, few others downstream participate in the process. Maplesoft now offers an interesting solution for this issue: MapleMBSE. It is an Excel-based solution that offers broad-based access to systems models. In this video, Chad Jackson provides some insight into this tool.
