Through-Life Systems Engineering Design & Support with SysML Thumbnail


S.R. Chandler


New system capability needs have been evaluated based primarily on the product design characteristics. This process neglects the other areas of the system design such as operational availability. The proposed solution takes a more holistic view of system capability identification and trade-off analysis. This solution will consider the combination of both operations and support environments with through-life predictions of the key performance indicators of the various options, while using the systems modelling language (SysML) integrated with SimuLink. This involves using SysML to provide engineering templates, modular assembly of simulation scenarios and a matrix trade-off method using stochastic information.
