The Systems Engineering Closed Loop Process: The Key for Validation

According to Aberdeen research, product complexity has nearly doubled since 2009. This rapidly increasing complexity introduces risks and costs. Model-Based System Engineering and Simulation is a key enabler in helping to manage this complexity. 

The rise in product complexity is a growing concern; in fact, it has been found that complexity has almost doubled in the past four years, going from 27% of respondents in 2009 to 51% this year, making it the top system engineering challenge. Don´t get hurt by the negative business impact that can happen when developing products that include embedded software.

Download this white paper to see how Best-in-Class manufacturers companies use virtual prototyping to improve testing, simulation and modeling. Discover why creating innovative products requires effective systems design to adapt on-the-fly, hit product targets and capture market share.

Aberdeen’s findings include:Aberdeen Closed Loop image

  • For Best-in-Class manufacturers, early stage simulation is almost universal; versus 50% with others.
  • Best-in-Class almost exclusively use virtual prototypes to simulate performance prior to physical construction.
  • Simulation is used by Best-in-Class to verify subsystem interactions, reduce change and rework costs, and to contribute to a closed loop process of improving simulation and testing. 

This paper is for systems engineers and designers who need to justify more simulation, prototype testing and model-based systems engineering.
