Take a new approach to Systems Engineering
There are many definitions of systems engineering in the market today. At PTC we strive for a shared Systems Engineering perspective with our customers - one that focuses on the challenges they see every day. Increasingly, engineering executives are expected to accelerate the delivery of innovative products, with fewer resources, while maintaining the highest level of quality across diverse product variants.
The presence and increasing importance of software in many products introduces additional complexities that cannot be effectively handled with traditional engineering processes and technologies.
Many customers are looking for a comprehensive, multidisciplinary (hardware and software) approach that drives collaboration in the design of complex systems. Increasing complexity requires an iterative, closed-loop process with system-level requirements flow-down and granular traceability - from system requirements all the way through design and testing.
This complexity is exacerbated for products with software intensive systems. The optimal system architecture can be developed through iterative modeling and simulation. When iteration is fostered early in the system design process, collaboration becomes more effective, significantly reducing late lifecycle rework. Time to market is shortened, quality improved, and costs reduced.
