MBSE GENESYS 2021 R2 - Now includes REST API

Zuken announces the Release 2021 R2 of its model-based systems engineering platform Vitech GENESYS


GENESYS 2021 R2 Connects Digital Engineering with MBSE

Westford, MA, USA and Munich, Germany, Dec. 1st, 2021 – Zuken announces the release of GENESYS 2021 R2, the most recent version of its flagship systems engineering software developed by Vitech, a Zuken Company. Designed to provide a robust platform for managing the complexities of today’s intelligent and connected systems, GENESYS improves the quality of systems engineering in organizations with its model-based systems engineering (MBSE) approach.

Release 2021 R2 extends and improves the foundations for connectivity to other digital engineering systems, which allows GENESYS to integrate diverse engineering data into a continuous digital thread through the addition of a REST application programming interface. Communication between interdisciplinary teams has been improved through the addition of reusable queries that can extract specific aspects of engineering data customized for the requirements of individual process stakeholders. To meet the requirements of the growing GENESYS user base in the European aerospace community, GENESYS now also supports a French language user interface.


With release 2021 R2, GENESYS adds a REST API, a rich, web-based application programming interface that complements the existing GENESYS Open API to provide partners and customers with significant capabilities and options for implementing broad digital engineering solutions. The new API provides a critical integration point to deliver on a joint strategy of connected digital ecosystems, enabling digital threads across heterogeneous environments.

“Open ecosystems allowing organizations to connect best-of-breed tools are critical to a successful digital transformation,” stated David Long Vitech President and CEO of Zuken Vitech, “we believe the rich connectivity in GENESYS and the power of our systems approach will bring tremendous value to our partners and customers seeking to realize this vision.”

Reusable Queries

Another new capability is a simple-to-use but powerful viewpoint capability. With this feature, users can extract specific aspects of engineering data based on reusable queries. This helps to present relevant engineering data in a meaningful way to its intended recipients, whether they are part of the engineering teams or other stakeholders.

In addition to these improvements connecting both systems and users, there are numerous improvements to performance and overall usability. Diagnostic checks have been optimized to run more efficiently and now provide easier to understand error messages. A significant performance improvement has been realized in the Excel connector, where bulk operations now run ten to fifteen times faster.
