PTC Integrity Modeler is a pragmatic solution for SysML, UML and Variability modeling, all integrated within a single tool. Create consistent, high quality models for systems, software and product line engineers to communicate requirements, consider design alternatives and make decisions involving the entire stakeholder community, regardless of their location. Independent survey results show that applying MB-PLE approaches, such as those in PTC Integrity, can reduce your total development costs by 62% and deliver 23% more of your projects on time.1
PTC Integrity Modeler reduces the time and effort required to design products, systems and software by leading you through the appropriate industry standard diagrams and automating repetitive tasks. It also reduces costs by finding potential problems much earlier and simplifies the design process by modeling the way you build. On its own, PTC Integrity Modeler enables model-based systems, software and Product Line Engineering (PLE). In conjunction with PTC Integrity Asset Library it extends these techniques with modular design, to model SoS, CBD and SOA solutions. This natural synergy between the PTC Integrity’s design process and your development or engineering approaches minimizes translation and simplifies communication.

Understand how AVL, the largest independent Powertrain Engineering firm, manages software complexity working with different tools, different teams and different disciplines, using PTC’s Model-Based Systems Engineering approach.
My name is Dirk Denger and I'm working for AVL List GmbH which is located in Graz in Austria. What has moved us is innovation. It doesn't matter if you're doing engineering or if you are doing management and testing devices or simulation tools for our customers. The standard of everything, what we are doing is innovation.
System engineering I would say it's an art of thinking. You have new ways how we will solve task for our customer or our development to fulfill, to get this new innovation. So systems engineering is a center point for our way to think.
We chose PTC, at Powertrain Engineering at our services because we found out that the PTC solutions best fit to the way we are thinking.
When we came at AVL Powertrain Engineering, we needed a strong data backbone, what support our development. And for that we started with Windchill mainly based first only for hardware, bill of material, product data management. And then we integrated Integrity Modeler to have the same for software and electronics.
If you want to come to higher efficiency or effectiveness, never do things twice. You need the support of tools. And for that we introduced at AVL, the Integrity Modeler. And Integrity Modeler is a system engineering tool which helps us to understand how things are interacting. And it's a common language where now our different team from the different disciplines can bargain though they can't understand each other much more. So something like a language translator from the software guys to the mechanical guys, to the EE-guys, to the hydraulic guys.
Integrity Modeler helps us to manage complexity because when we are working with the tools, with the different teams from different disciplines, first during the modeling, we see the complexity, we understand the complexity, how things are interacting. During this process we understand what we have to do and can make the right decisions and these decisions can be done by objective managements, and this helps us a lot.
We have now the tool chain or we call it engineering IT tool chain, which support our industrialized, standardized engineering process in the best way.
