MODEL-BASED SYSTEMS ENGINEERING - A SYSTEMATIC APPROACH TO COMPLEXITY
The most effective method to boost clarity and decision-making for complex marine engineering systems. Copy the engineering process used by the forerunners of complex systems – aerospace and automotive industries!
The increasing complexity of marine engineering systems, such as propulsion systems, makes system integration more challenging. Simulating the entire system provides more comprehensive insights compared to simulating individual components separately. For example, isolating the simulation of distinct parts within a complex system entails overlooking potential effects arising from their mutual interactions. In numerous applications, the significance of these interactions cannot be disregarded due to robust dependencies between the system’s constituent parts. We use Modelica, the industry standard language to model complex systems.
Ever heard of the rule of tens? According to the theory, the cost of a change increases tenfold at each step of the product development process. Making a change in the production test phase can hence result in 1000 times more expensive than if it was made already in the design phase. Our Model-Based Systems Engineering methods allow you to make system simulations and gain knowledge already in the early steps, much before 3D models come into play.
Understanding system reliability, cost of ownership, maintenance, and warranty claims is becoming more relevant to customers and manufacturers. Thanks to our model-based reliability engineering methods and experience, you will not only gain an understanding of these matters, but turn them into a framework that supports your company’s continuous improvement processes.
