The growth of complexity of healthcare systems requires to redesign the way we capture functions and architectural choices by moving from manual, non-scalable, document-oriented processes to models. Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) is a systems engineering methodology that focuses on creating and exploiting domain models as the primary means of information exchange between engineers. This talk will explain how to deal with two main challenges: how to go beyond state-of-the-art by providing a methodological guidance to make every stakeholders committed to the system architecture design while providing a close-loop integration with downstream engineering.
With multiple high-level system abstractions, engineers want to define system architectures and create system models to represent various functional, logical and physical needs as well as capture and analyze performance targets. During the modeling process, they can also capture and share the interface definitions and system relationships with software architects, electronics, safety analysts, 3D designers. By integrated the two successful tool Capella and Teamcenter in a fluent way, System Modeling Workbench is the first-of-its-kind integrated systems engineering environment that companies can use to provide whole product visibility for cross-product and cross-domain optimization. PLM and MBSE are combined to make Digital Thread real with a keeper of product knowledge, variations, configurations and changes to enable the creation of next generation of healthcare systems.
