Validating Systems Architectures from the Bottom Up

Products are becoming more feature-rich and more complex. Many organizations increasingly rely on systems engineering. In this post, I’ll dive into some common issues with developing systems architectures. I will focus on how to increase collaboration between detailed design and systems engineering teams through a validation step right before detailed design starts.

Two Design Approaches – Will MBSE Design Prevail?

Products are increasing in complexity at an astonishing rate. Smartphones are just one example: today’s devices combine the functionality of yesterday’s phones, cameras, calculators, and pagers and place desktop applications and internet browsers in the palms of our hands. Advancing electrification, mass miniaturization, and IoT-driven digitization are making a vast range of devices smarter and smaller.
To cope with these changes, manufacturers must transform the way they develop complex systems.

This post compares and contrasts the traditional and modern approaches to developing and verifying products.
