Many manufacturers are harnessing systems engineering approaches to mitigate the complexity of developing increasingly sophisticated products. Systems simulation is a key component of such efforts.
Thanks to advancing technology, products are becoming more feature-rich and in turn, more complex. They must incorporate sophisticated electronic and electrical systems to provide the interconnectivity and user experience modern consumers demand. As a result, many organizations increasingly rely on systems engineering.
There’s no doubt about it: products are getting smarter. And that translates to increasing complexity for manufacturers. Traditional mechanical products suddenly require cabling and wiring, internet connectivity, and embedded software to function.
Mission complexity is growing faster than our ability to handle it. As traditional methods are coming under pressure, the evolution of model-based systems engineering promises help. David Long, President of the systems engineering company Vitech, explains how.
