Undoubtedly, the transportation and mobility industry is experiencing impressive innovation and dramatic change today. Sustainability and safety spur the development of new-to-the-world electric drives, groundbreaking battery platforms, and novel assisted and autonomous systems. Many OEMs and suppliers are turning to systems engineering as a framework for it all. Model-based systems engineering (MBSE) approaches have been …
Developing Mobility Architectures, E/E and Software Systems for the Transportation and Mobility Industry
Aras Innovator: The Advantages of Accessing Simulation Data in Your Product Lifecycle Management Solution
As part of technology-led initiatives, many engineering organizations have adopted both simulation and product lifecycle management (PLM) to help drive and optimize product development efforts. Today, these companies often must rely on a variety of simulation products to meet their needs. Yet, engineering change orders (ECOs), which can come from any step in the product …
The Digital Engineering Approach
Let’s talk about systems development’s full potential, which only results from a comprehensive approach. What are the aspects of a digital engineering approach?
Engineering Co-Design Across Domains
As products get smarter and more interconnected, engineering co-design is more critical than ever. How can you improve your organization’s capacity for co-design?
Requirements Traceability in a MBSE Environment
It’s no surprise that the E/E systems are becoming more complex. Manufacturers are adapting their development approaches to meet the new demands. In this post, we’ll share insights from The Engineering Executives Strategic Agenda Study, the impact complex E/E systems has on processes and product requirements and how to meet and manage these requirements.
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.
Systems Engineering Enables Traceability for Electrical and Electronic Design
Systems engineering practices help organizations mitigate and manage product complexity. When applied to electronics and electrical systems, systems engineering takes on a whole new meaning. Using this approach, teams break down a product’s requirements and functions with a high degree of granularity and allocate them to functions, logical architectures, and physical items. In doing so, they gain traceability that enables them to explore the impact of any design changes on requirements and make the best decisions possible.
This post explores some of the different areas where systems engineering makes a difference and how systems engineering enables traceability.
