CATIA SYSTEMS for Engineering

MASTERING THE CROSS-DISCIPLINE SYSTEMS DEVELOPMENT PROCESS

Developing smart products has never been more challenging. Developers need an integrated systems engineering approach that enables them to manage the complete development process. Requirements engineering, systems architecture definition, detailed modeling and simulation of complex systems and the development of embedded software all need to be mastered in the context of the complete product. 

The Systems Engineering solution from Dassault Systèmes delivers a unique, open and extensible development platform – a platform that fully integrates the cross-discipline modeling, simulation, verification and business process support needed for developing complex ‘cyber-physical’ products. It enables organizations to quickly and easily evaluate requests for changes or develop new products or system variants, while utilizing a unified performance based systems engineering approach that reduces the overall cost of system and product development.

SYSTEMS ARCHITECTURE

DEFINE THE SYSTEMS ARCHITECTURE OF COMPLEX PRODUCTS AND SYSTEMS
 

Systems engineering of complex products is by its very nature, a collaborative multi-disciplinary and iterative process. These products, and their associated systems and sub-systems, are characterized by the high level of interaction that takes place between a large numbers of different embedded systems and the physical hardware with which they interact. Today, it is common practice to use many different models to define the system architecture and simulate the behavior of these complex systems and products.  The challenge with this approach is that these models rarely interoperate with one another and do not exist in an aggregated environment for a ‘whole-system’ view or simulation of the complete product.

 

The Systems Architect role from Dassault Systèmes provides advanced capabilities to easily perform functional decomposition of complex products and systems to ensure that requirements are  accurately met all along the product development lifecycle. The solution provides a fully integrated system architecture definition, modeling and simulation environment built on an open and extensible platform.  This approach delivers unique model-based and platform-based systems engineering support.

Model-based systems engineering is enabled through a rich data model that enables the definition and management of the relationships between; requirements, the functional system architecture, the 2D & 3D Logical representation of this architecture,  and the physical representation and instantiations of the architecture in a given product or platform – including hardware and embedded software.  Platform-based systems engineering support is enabled through a rich and extensible data model and collaborative system engineering business process support environment that provides full requirements, product, program, project, and configuration lifecycle management capabilities.

        KEY BENEFITS

  • Rapidly define and decompose the systems architecture of complex products and systems – from early conceptual studies through to final architecture definition

  • Improved systems development efficiency through extensive reuse of systems engineering assets and templates

  • First class user experiences to improve design quality and reduce physical prototypes

EMBEDDED SYSTEMS

FROM SYSTEM MODELS TO EMBEDDED SOFTWARE GENERATION

 

The ever increasing usage of embedded systems within complex products presents major challenges for engineering companies worldwide. This trend is not only driven by constantly increasing consumer expectations on technological innovations, but also by the need to find competitive product differentiators while at the same time meeting ever increasing functional safety and environmental legislation constraints.   This challenging environment, is forcing organizations to continuously look at new ways of improving their embedded system design process to enable reductions in both development costs and time to market for their products. 

Developing embedded systems is a complex business, not only because of the risks involved if these systems fail, but also because of the complex multi-tiered design chains and multi-domain expertise involved.  The Dassault Systèmes best-in-class embedded system design tools helps engineering teams in multiple industries to efficiently manage their systems engineering process. With our products, systems engineers can efficiently design, collaborate and validate their model-based embedded systems applications across multi-discipline teams. 

 

The Dassault Systèmes AUTOSAR Builder and ControlBuild solutions are two comprehensive tool suites that provide a global solution on an open platform. 

 

       AUTOSAR Builder offers:

  • A powerful solution to design, decompose and re-use complex embedded systems that are  derived from customer functions and decomposed to detailed logical systems architecture definitions

  • A complete development environment built on an open Eclipse based Artop development platform that allows users to develop AUTOSAR compliant systems models and to then generate embedded code from these models. Design, decompose and re-use complex embedded systems that are  derived from customer functions and decomposed to detailed logical systems architecture definitions

ControlBuild tool suite offers a comprehensive solution for the design and validation of control systems in conjunction with a virtual model of the controlled part e.g. a train, a rail network (signals, track control and passenger information systems) , or a power or process plant, or a ships machinery control systems.  It covers the development process – from specification definition to system qualification in one single tool suite.

       KEY BENEFITS

  • Model-based embedded system design and simulation for enhanced reusability and productivity

  • Proven tools, processes and methodologies

  • Open and customizable solutions to easily fit within your current development processes

  • Reduce time to market, overall development costs, integration and qualification time

  • Manage compliance of development processes with major industry or  safety standards and corporate policies

  • Support for standards, interoperability and openness

MODELICA SYSTEMS SIMULATION -
3D EXPERIENCE

ACCELERATE THE DEVELOPMENT OF COMPLEX PRODUCTS AND SYSTEMS

 

It is common practice today to use many different models to simulate the behavior of complex systems and products. These models rarely interoperate with one another and don't exist in an "aggregated" environment that allows a "whole-system multi-physics simulation" of the complete product.

The 3DEXPERIENCE Platform uses the open Modelica language and Functional Mockup Interface (FMI) standard to rapidly model and simulate multi-physic dynamic and control systems. These systems can contain a combination of mechanical, electrical, electronic, hydraulic, thermal, control, electric power or process-oriented characteristics and components.

MODELICA SYSTEMS LIBRARIES

RAPIDLY MODEL, SIMULATE AND VALIDATE COMPLEX ENGINEERING SYSTEMS

Modelica systems libraries are developed by domain specialists. Used in conjunction with Dassault Systèmes' Modelica based solutions (either CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE or Dymola) to quickly model and simulate the behavior of complex systems that span multiple engineering disciplines - from flight and vehicle dynamics through to electric power systems.
