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 But they no longer need to rely on those outdated tools.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; …

PTC’s Acquisition of Onshape: Implications for Integrity

Where’s the intersection of PTC’s Onshape acquisition with Integrity?This video is the third of a five part series where Chad Jackson discusses the implications. Other videos to follow will be on ThingWorx and Vuforia.

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.

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.

Integrity and Windchill Integration

PTC recently announced the integration between Integrity and Windchill. Chad Jackson is here to talk about why this is so important.

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.

Aras Innovator’s Engineering Enhancements

As a pure-play PLM provider, you might think that Aras might not be investing heavily in engineering capabilities. That, however, would be incorrect. In this video, Chad Jackson talks about how Aras has invested in simulation and system engineering capabilities for Innovator.

The INCOSE Symposium: Should You Attend?

The International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE) holds an annual International Symposium event every year. Should you go? We give some guidance in this video.
