Digital Engineering Basics – Product Model Trade Studies (Part 2)
As Digital Engineering continues to gain momentum, there are a lot of questions about how to create a product model and the associated design process. Companies are struggling with the model transition to detailed design and model relevancy throughout the product lifecycle. Zuken is presenting a three-part webinar series exploring the Digital Engineering Basics of product model creation using MBSE, the use of trade studies, and implementing a wire harness. The webinars are built upon a real-world video drone design.

As Digital Engineering continues to gain momentum, there are a lot of questions about how to create a product model and the associated design process. Companies are struggling with model transition to detailed design and model relevancy throughout the product lifecycle. Zuken is presenting a three-part webinar series exploring the Digital Engineering development process utilizing a video drone example. Part 1 covers a systems engineering approach to model creation. Part 2 will demonstrate how trade studies are performed on the product model to verify and optimize the architecture. Part 3 moves the drone model into a detailed design for wire harness design.
This webinar will demonstrate systems engineering best practices in verifying product requirements using a MBSE model. Parameters and Constraint definitions will be used to build equations to analyze various aspects of the model that lead to a business value trade-off. A critical product requirement is the operational time. Various aspects of the design will be analyzed to determine the system’s ability to meet that requirement. The ability to meet that requirement along with weight, cost, and video performance will be rolled up into business value analysis. The analysis will be run through Model Center and integrate various analysis tools.
In this webinar, you’ll learn:
- Modeling Parameters and Constraint Definitions
- Delivering content to Model Center
- Model Center Analysis
- Receiving results from Model Center
- Creating Verification Status Reports
