The engineers who design production systems are not strangers to complexity. This raises the question: Can systems engineering be applied to the development of production systems? Let’s explore how, by discussing systems engineering and model-based system engineering.
Making the Case: MBSE versus Spreadsheets and Documents
While the set of practices called systems engineering are a boon to cross-disciplinary collaboration, technology has been slow to catch up. Without a new way to collaborate, engineers use tools familiar to them—spreadsheets and documents. But they no longer need to rely on those outdated tools.
CONTACT Software: More Than Another PLM Solution
Do we need another PLM solution in the marketplace? It seems like a pretty crowded field. Why would another solution, like CONTACT Software, really be any different? Let’s table the discussion about whether we need another one and talk about the company first. Organic Product Development First off, CONTACT Software is not a public company; …
Onscale: What is Simulation-as-a-Service?
What are the benefits of OnScale’s Simulation-as-a-Service solution? In this video, Chad Jackson discusses its capabilities and how its’ unique licensing/pricing model enables innovation.
Altair Knowledge Works: Applying Artificial Intelligence And Machine Learning To Engineering Simulation
How does the newly announced Altair Knowledge Works product use Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning in simulation to improve the design process? In this video, Chad Jackson talks about how these technologies can lead to new product innovation, reduced design time, and better product performance.
What’s The Best Way To Share Simulation Results? Let’s Talk About VCollab As An Option
Today’s process of sharing simulation results between analysts, executives, and engineers can be inefficient and time consuming. In this video, Chad Jackson reviews VCollab’s solution.
Insights from Research: Finding and Accessing Information in Engineering
I think we all know that engineers use a lot of different information to make design decisions. And the big question is, how do they find that information, and how do they access it? Well, this year, we conducted some research to look into the answers.
Obeo, Capella, and Arcadia: What are they? What’s the value?
You might know that Obeo, Capella, and Arcadia are all related to systems engineering. But which does what? In this video, Chad Jackson gives an overview of each and why this MBSE toolset has an advantage over others.
Modelon’s Fit in Systems Simulation
One-dimensional (1D) simulations of systems offer a means to digitally troubleshoot behaviors long be building an expensive high-stakes prototype. But how do you model the system without the right components? That’s where Modelon comes in. Chad Jackson provides an overview of this solution in our latest video.
