Speed is ever more important in systems engineering and product development. We believe that better visualisation, easier collaboration and focused automation are key to handle the ever increasing complexity in systems and product development and key in becoming better, faster and simpler - thus having more time for innovations. Visualisation helps to understand faster and to make better decisions earlier. Team collaboration and conversation are becoming more and more important as activities are made increasingly parallel and distributed. Last but not least automation is important in order to focus your resources on the high value tasks and of course to ensure quality. Co-Simulation, animation and virtualisation add further to speed up all these dimensions.
Key to every action is fast feedback.
Let us talk - we will gladly listen to your challenges and exchange our experiences and lessons learned.
An effective approach to drive the challenging tasks of improving Systems Engineering in a structured way is the Systems Development Taxonomy (refer to Figure hereafter). This classification has been established based on many different domains, projects and customers. It determines seven practice stages and also helps in laying out a path for the incremental adoption of Model Driven Systems Engineeing (MDSE) within an organization.
The journey starts at Stage 1 with the simple idea and may finally lead to Stage 7 on the other end of the spectrum with the tested and proven model. The importance and value of each of these consecutive 7 stages is given in order to continuously improve the Systems Engineering capabilities.
The System Development Taxonomy is field agnostic: It can be applied on each system development phase and is applicable to every domain – being it mechanical, software, analogue and digital electronic, optics, etc. Let us briefly go through the stages:
We are growing - you have passion and want to make a difference!
You see yourself as a leading consultant driving Modelling (UML/SysML) into the market and would like to lead consulting projects especially in the area of product development, software and systems engineering. At EVOCEAN you can bring in your own ideas and be part of a team dedicated to driving improvements and excellence in product development.
This training offers a special, very effective introduction into the development with UML and Rhapsody ®: From the beginning on, the popular Raspberry Pi is used as target hardware. The concepts are implemented in a practical oriented way directly on the Board. Therefore, the participants will learn hands-on how to work with UML and Rhapsody.
To develop complex, customised applications in distributed locations efficiently - an example at mcs engineering ag
To develop complex, customised applications in distributed locations efficiently … with an easy and reliable versioning … and with a minimum time involved for data handling and tool administration! The mcs group meets this challenge with Perforce, one of the leading software solutions in the area of versioning and configuration management. Eric Gutmann, project manager at mcs engineering ag in Grüsch/GR, reports.
Hamilton Medical relies on Model Driven Development (MDD) with IBM Rhapsody® for developing their intelligent ventilation solutions. Thanks to the direct coupling of design and code, the constantly growing challenges in software development are addressed more effectively and development productivity as well as agility have been increased.
Model Driven Development - a case study from Kern AG
Complex products, product life cycles up to 20 years, demanding requirements with regard to quality and short changeover times, as well as the need of easy operation... Kern meets these challenges with Model Driven Development and IBM Rational Rhapsody. Andreas Dubach, Head Systems Development, reports.
Shorter time-to-market thanks to Model Driven Development – Bernina International recounts
Achieving simple administration, a scalable product variety as well as short release cycles... Bernina is mastering these challenges with the help of IBM Rational Rhapsody. Giovanni Annunzio, Junior System Architect at Bernina International AG, explains, why at the same time more re-sources have become free for innovations.
Configuration Management made easy... also for small teams.
User-friendly versioning, centralised management with the possibility of working off-line, powerful interfaces to Eclipse and LabVIEW, as well as a migration tool for CVS... these arguments were decisive for Metrolab to introduce Perforce. Philip Keller, Marketing & Product Manager of Metrolab Technology SA, reports.
