As products have become complex systems that combine hardware, sensors, data storage, software, and connectivity, many engineers are facing new challenges:
How to develop a multidisciplinary system in an environment supporting both hardware and software development.
How to test complex products before they are available in physical form and by this to reduce time to market and the cost.
Model-based systems engineering (MBSE) is an answer to these challenges. MBSE is the formalized application of modeling to support system requirements, design, analysis, verification and validation activities beginning in the conceptual design phase and continuing throughout development and later life cycle phases.
By using logical and functional models (SIL – Software in the Loop/HIL – Hardware in the Loop) new products can be analyzed and tested virtually to avoid unnecessary and expensive prototype costs.
3DEXPERIENCE® on the cloud provides not only a model-based approach sharing models and parameters in a single real-time environment. It’s integrated Systems Engineering platform supports the rapid development of intelligent products, cross domain modeling and simulation of complex systems. The fact that the 3DEXERIENCE runs on the cloud provides unique possibilities. All stakeholders, the client, the multidisciplinary experts, wherever they are around the world, can work and review on the same system, to ensure the system is delivered as expected, in high quality, with the shortest time to deliver.
Product complexity is driving a need to bring multiple people together more efficiently to collaborate and that is accelerating the need to create convergence between the real and virtual worlds... It’s critical because you need to make sure the product you’re putting on the market is the right product and is delivering the right services.
