Developing Systems On Time And Budget Through Integrated MBSE AND PLM

Product development and manufacturing organizations are facing competing pressures as they look to design and create new products. They are working on shorter timelines with reduced resources. They are also being asked to satisfy increasingly complex requirements for smarter features, which is leading them to incorporate more software and electronics in products, regardless of their specific industry.

Systems engineering approaches, including model-based systems engineering (MBSE), have helped organizations better manage more complex product development. Yet, when manufacturers are unable to connect multiple, disparate MBSE models across engineering domains—and to overarching product lifecycle management (PLM) solutions—they are likely to struggle as they try to integrate systems, resulting in significant delays or cost overruns.

Engineering organizations that integrate MBSE with PLM are in a much better position to manage the design and development of smarter, more complex products. Systems lifecycle management (SysLM), the integrated combination of MBSE models and PLM, provides a collaborative lynchpin for design trade-offs, democratizes design and simulation traceability, and automates digital verification and validation.

This report discusses the following:

  • How complexity is driving systems engineering adoption
  • MBSE across engineering domains
  • MBSE for downstream architecture collaboration
  • MBSE and detailed design traceability
  • MBSE and simulation traceability
