Develop the functional and physical architecture, model of the product, associated specifications, and derived requirements.

Best Practices: Key System Architecture Design Process Improvements Enabled by PTC Capabilities

System Architecture Design: Best Practices
  • System and software model management: Manage the system models and provide traceability to the architectural components, change management process and product configuration.
  • Functional/logical architecture management: Formalize the definition and management of system architectures. Provide traceability from requirements to design solutions.
  • Modular architecture definition: Design a modular product architecture to enable increased levels of design reuse, and increase the ability to tailor products for specific markets or customers.
  • Interface definition and management: Identify, document and publish key module interfaces to establish design boundaries and enable concurrent product development. Manage and communicate changes to interfaces.
