Adapting the GUI of an Executable System Model to specific Variants using PLE Tool integrations

Product Line Engineering (PLE) is the engineering of a family of related products using a shared set of (digital) engineering assets. In case of physical systems, before the actual production of a product line begins, a whole set of digital artifacts must be maintained to describe the entire family (variants) of products. In the context […]

Application of Model-Based System Engineering (MBSE) Principles to an Automotive Driveline Sub-System Architecture

This paper documents the real-world application of model-based systems engineering (MBSE) methodology and principles to an automotive driveline system. A system model developed in the course of this thesis supports the definition and sizing of the driveline system to best communicate and deliver functional specifications tied to customer requirements. Furthermore, this system model documents, organizes, […]

Real World Application of MBSE at Bombardier Transportation

MBSE is an integrated approach. To get the best solution, large organizations adopt MBSE toolchains in their modeling environment. This process involves choosing the right tools from different vendors, applying client work process, and ensuring their inter-operability in the right way. Today we‘re delighted to share how MBSE is applied to model complex systems of […]

MBSE in Real-Life Space Exploration Projects

Systems engineering techniques have been used in spacecraft design, avionics, and engineering in general for over 60 years. At the moment, space exploration industries face new significant challenges: the largest optical and radio telescopes, missions to mars and exoplanets, reusable rockets, increase of small CubeSat satellites usage, service robots, and other. The constant increase in […]

MBSE with SysML: Automated Consistency with Rapid, Definitive Answers

Lenny Delligatti, the author of SysML Distilled, presents this 26-minute on-demand webinar discussing MBSE ROI. He presents data collected from four aerospace and defense programs. These data provide evidence that there is a higher probability that MBSE will result in a better outcome than the traditional document-based approach. Two roots of MBSE ROI are presented: […]

Model Based Systems Engineering for Astronomical Projects

Model Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) is an emerging field of systems engineering for which the System Modeling Language (SysML) is a key enabler for descriptive, prescriptive and predictive models. This paper surveys some of the capabilities, expectations and peculiarities of tools-assisted MBSE experienced in real-life astronomical projects. The examples range in depth and scope across […]
