When embracing model-based systems engineering we are in effect creating a set of interconnected models that capture knowledge and then presents it in different ways. By doing so we assist our engineers in finding problems early on and identifying correlations and insights that can lead to new solutions. By combining MBSE with a quality-orientated approach we can then deliver full-fledged, safe and reliable solutions to our customers, minimising development time, and doing so at competitive prices. This is key when developing for increasingly more complex vehicle technology.
Adopting MBSE does pose several challenges; for example, how to ensure that value is added, that the objectives are met and how standards like ISO26262 are fulfilled whilst remaining competitive and flexible. But as we’ve said before, where others see challenges, we find opportunities instead.
