How MBSE can make real the Digital Thread thanks to System Modeling Workbench?
The growth of complexity of healthcare systems requires to redesign the way we capture functions and architectural choices by moving from manual, non-scalable, document-oriented processes to models. Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) is a systems engineering methodology that focuses on creating and exploiting domain models as the primary means of information exchange between engineers. This talk will explain how to deal with two main challenges: how to go beyond state-of-the-art by providing a methodological guidance to make every stakeholders committed to the system architecture design while providing a close-loop integration with downstream engineering.With multiple high-level system abstractions, engineers want to define system architectures and create system models to represent various functional, logical and physical needs as well as capture and analyze performance targets. During the modeling process, they can also capture and share the interface definitions and system relationships with software architects, electronics, safety analysts, 3D designers. By integrated the two successful tool Capella and Teamcenter in a fluent way, System Modeling Workbench is the first-of-its-kind integrated systems engineering environment that companies can use to provide whole product visibility for cross-product and cross-domain optimization. PLM and MBSE are combined to make Digital Thread real with a keeper of product knowledge, variations, configurations and changes to enable the creation of next generation of healthcare systems.

A review of Know-How reuse with patterns in Model-Based Systems Engineering
The increasing complexity of systems to be developed requires engineers to review their practices in order to improve the efficiency of engineering and meet the needs of a competitive market. That is why models supported by formal or semi-formal languages are preferred to avoid the understanding variability of natural languages. In this context, Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) made it possible to change the engineering paradigm by putting forward a unique, shared system model. To promote its adoption, a solution would be to allow reuse of knowledge and know-how, to encourage engineers seizing and adapting MBSE to their needs. This paper aims to review and evaluate the concept of patterns towards reuse in engineering, especially in a MBSE approach.
An MBSE Framework to support Agile Functional Definition of an Avionics System
In avionics domain, there have been many efforts in recent years to build a MBSE methodology with tooling support. Main purpose is often to improve quality and efficiency of system definition and architecture. Sometimes there is also an additional objective to ease system verification and validation. This paper introduces an additional challenge with the support of an agile development cycle to ease impact analysis and incorporation of late and changing requirements at different times. It presents key principles and requirements of an agile MBSE approach and presents associated modeling activities with illustration on an avionics case study.
How to boost the extended enterprise approach in engineering using MBSE – a case study from the railway business
This paper presents an overview of why Model Based System Engineering (MBSE) is the mandatory solution to engineer complex railway systems and subsystems, giving some insights about the complexity and technical challenges. But its main focus will be on how MBSE can be a key enabler on the implementation of an extend enterprise approach in the engineering domain. The case study would be on a rolling stock systems and brake subsystems developed by two companies respectively Bombardier Transportation and Knorr Bremse which are dealing into the customer-supplier relationship.
Ontology-Based Optimization for Systems Engineering
Model-Based Systems Engineering techniques used with decriptive metamodel such as NAF, SysML or UML often fails to provide quick analyses of huge problem spaces. This is generally compensated by Operations Research technique supporting the resolution of constraint-based problems. This paper shows how both perspectives can be combined in a smooth continuous bridge filling the gap between the two universes whilst hiding the operations researchs complexity for the modelers and automating the exploration of a very huge problem space for the finding of optimized solutions.
Formal Methods in Systems Integration: Deployment of Formal Techniques in INSPEX
Inspired by the abilities of contemporary autonomous vehicles to navigate with a high degree of effectiveness, the INSPEX Project aims to create a minaturised smart obstacle detection system, which could find use in a wide variety of leading edge smart applications. The primary use case focused on in the project is producing an advanced prototype for a device which can be attached to a visually impaired or blind (VIB) person’s white cane, and which, through the integration of a variety of minaturised sensors, and of the processing of their data via sophisticated algorithms, can offer the VIB user greater precision of information about their environment. The increasing complexity of such systems creates increasing challenges to assure their correct operation, inviting the introduction of formal techniques to aid in maximising system dependability. However, the major challenge to building such systems resides at the hardware end of the development. This impedes the routine application of top-down formal methods approaches. Some ingenuity must be brought to bear, in order that normally mutually hostile formal and mainstream approaches can contribute positively towards system dependability, rather than conflicting unproductively. This aspect is illustrated using two strands of the INSPEX Project.
A Domain Model-Centric Approach for the Development of Large-Scale Office Lighting Systems
The high-tech system industry faces many challenges, such as continuously increasing system complexity, scale and customer demands. We address these challenges using a domain model-centric approach. This approach focuses on clear and formal system specifications, connected to a chain of automatic transformations for system analysis, including virtual prototyping, and system synthesis, e.g. code generation. We have applied the approach to the development of large-scale office lighting systems in order to reduce development effort and handle the complexity of system control.
Applying Unified Architecture Framework (UAF) for Systems of Systems Architectures
Architecture frameworks continue to evolve. Taking industry demand into account and addressing changing landscape of existing domain specific architecture frameworks, in September of 2013, a Request for Proposal for Unified profile for DoDAF and MODAF (UPDM 3.0) (later renamed to Unified Architecture Framework (UAF)) was created. Since the issue of the request for proposal (RFP), UPDM 3.0 working group identified the list of requirements. To name a few: Architecture Modeling Support for Defense, Industry, and government Organizations, support of Security Domain, Human Systems Integration, Support of Systems of Systems (SoS) Life Cycle Processes and Analyses. Since then four years past and a brand new UAF 1.0 became an official Object Management Group (OMG) standard and is about to become ISO/IEC 19517 standard. What this new architecture framework (AF) is all about? How is it different from other AFs? Is it just a synthesis of a legacies? Or is it a modern technology combining the best practices of an old with a new and modern? This presentation explores UAF, answering the fundamental questions above and putting a specific focus to answer the questions below: 1. What kind of problems solving UAF is applicable for? 2. Is UAF a replacement for NATO architecture framework (NAF)? 3. How UAF is related to model-based systems engineering (MBSE)? These and many more questions are answered in this presentation by giving the real-world UAF application examples to architect systems of systems in various industry domains.
On-Time-Launch capability for Ariane 6 Launch System
For space transportation systems used to place satellites in space, the launch rate fulfillment (turnover) and the launch delay reduction (avoid additional cost) are key parameters driving the launch cost. In addition, launching on-time is beneficial to the payload operator business model. In Europe, Ariane 5 has demonstrated its unmatched reliability with more than 80 successful consecutive launches. Due to increasing competition worldwide for space transportation systems, Ariane 6 will have to achieve the same reliability but with twice the launch cadence. This is the reason why, on Ariane 6, the On-Time-Launch capability has been taken into account since upstream development phases. Firstly, the main drivers for this performance have been identified (lessons learnt) on the complete life cycle. Based on cost approach, an allocation methodology has been defined, including risk severity and occurrence management. Then, mitigation actions and robustness to degraded cases have been deduced.
Safety Architecture Overview Framework for the prediction, explanation and control of risks of ERTMS
The proposed framework includes modelling of interfaces between risk analysis, risk evaluation and scenario’s representing flows of safety information of the European Railway Traffic Management System (ERTMS). In this study, we propose a functional framework combining safety data generation, data processing and structuring, definition of interactions and finally, the creation of customized representations in order to predict, explain, and control risks. Through literature review and ERTMS applicability, we develop a safety architecture overview framework. The comprehensive overview of the safety architecture can illustrate the main interactions between government, regulations, company management, technical and operational management, physical process and activities, and environment. Explicit representation delivers insight, stimulates striving for completeness, and leads to consistency of the safety analyses.
Through a Glass, Darkly? Taking a Network Perspective on System-of-Systems Architectures
A system-of-systems architecture can be thought of as a complex network comprising a set of entities of different types, connected together by a set of relationships, also of different types. A systems architect might attempt to make use of the analytic tools associated with network science when evaluating such architectures, anticipating that taking a “network perspective” might offer insights into their structure. However, taking a network perspective on real-world systemof-systems architectures is fraught with challenges. The relationship between the architecture and a network representation can be overly simplistic, meaning that network-theoretic models can struggle to respect, inter alia, the heterogeneity of system entities and their relationships, the richness of their behavior, and the vital role of context in an architecture. A more mature conceptualization of the relationship between architectures and their network representations is required before the lens of network science can offer a usefully clear view of architecture properties.
Assessing the maturity of interface design
It is widely accepted that the way the interfaces between subsystems are designed is a major aspect of system architecture. The task of designing interfaces is made difficult by the technical diversity of subsystems, of interfaces, of functional requirements and integration constraints. Change management processes have long been implemented by the industry to monitor and control interface design. In this paper, change request data from several projects completed by Naval Group is analyzed. The Change Generation Index is introduced and a heuristic formula is proposed to link the maturity of interface design with change request generation. A promising parallel is established between the design process of a large system and learning processes well known to the social sciences community.
Model-based system reconfiguration: a descriptive study of current industrial challenges
System reconfiguration is essential in management of complex systems because it allows companies better flexibility and adaptability. System evolutions have to be managed in order to ensure system effectivity and efficiency through its whole lifecycle, in particular when it comes to complex systems that have decades of development and up to hundreds of years of usage. System reconfiguration can be considered and deployed in different lifecycle phases. Two significant phases are considered in configuration management and System reconfiguration: development –allowing system performances by modifying the architecture early in the conceptual phase– and operations – allowing optimization of performances during the in-service phase. This paper gives an overview of a field research been initiated and currently undergoing to capture the strengths and the shortages in the current industrial landscape. It also discusses possible future management strategies with regard to identified issues and challenges.
Tracking Dynamics in Concurrent Digital Twins
The availability of machine-generated data for the management of complex systems enables run-time technologies for diagnosis, predictive maintenance, process control, etc. that find their apex in digital twins. Such model-based replica of cyberphysical assets represent system elements and their behavior within their environment, which is often dynamic. These dynamics of a system’s environment can render the underlying model unfit w.r.t. the changing reality and thus cripple the whole approach. We provide the means to detect such a transgression of the operational space of digital twins and similar technologies using a novel combination of probability-of-findings calculations with established process control methods and localize necessary updates to ensure efficient model maintenance.
Towards a Standards-Based Domain Specific Language for Industry 4.0 Architectures
Advances in research and development paved the way for a new revolution concerning industrial manufacturing, called Industry 4.0. Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) contain methods for ubiquitous monitoring of information and synchronizing it with any other component on each hierarchical level participating in the value chain. Developing Industry 4.0 architectures for pointing out the structural cooperation of these Systems of systems (SoS) is a challenging task including a lot of different stakeholders. To bring together knowledge and experience, a common methodology is necessary. Regarding this, several German industrial associations created a suitable reference architecture, called Reference Architecture Model Industry 4.0 (RAMI 4.0). In this paper, a Domain Specific Systems Engineering approach using a Domain Specific Language (DSL) based on the results of this reference architecture is proposed and evaluated by a suitable case study.
Field guide to interpreting engineering team design behavior with sensor data
The design of complex systems is a challenge, yet validation of muchneeded new tools is difficult, and must address sociotechnical team interactions. The recent availability of pervasive sensors has allowed the creation of a “design experiment” platform to bring empirical data to the field. We seek to holistically characterize teams’ design work, in narrative form, to uncover fundamental teamwork design behavior. Thus, this work integrates disparate data to create “mapping rules” from sensors to story. We find promising sensor-derived stories.
Systemic Design Engineering - Curriculum and Instructional Results
This paper describes a methodology, Systemic Design Engineering, that integrates systems thinking for sustainability, design thinking for human centricity, and systems and software engineering for implementation efficiency. Based on these operating principles, an integrated set of learning objectives for this approach are described. A supporting syllabus is presented which is suitable to a semester-long undergraduate or graduate design course. A pilot of this curriculum in a graduate level systems and software engineering design course has been conducted. The learning results from this pilot are presented. These results are compared and contrasted with the results from a similar, traditional systems engineering design course and a dedicated systems thinking course. Finally, conclusions and areas for further refinement and developments are described.
Analyzing Awareness, Decision, and Outcome Sequences of Project Design Groups: A Platform for Instrumentation of Workshop-based Experiments
Activity dependencies gain importance as engineering programs become more complex and global. We treat the planning of engineering programs and projects as a collaborative exercise by teams to design their shared project. An Awareness-Decision model and sensors for measurement were developed to correlate attentions and actions to outcomes during project design. A cloud-based platform allows teams to model projects and to simulate a project’s cost and duration. This approach enables efficient deployment of experiments with global project design groups. During experimental sessions, we captured attention allocation, project change and performance data across 38 groups at three global sites to explore their decision-making process and exploration of the cost-duration-tradespace. In this set of experiments, the groups that were stimulated to pay more attention to dependencies did not show a correlation with improved outcomes. Employing several sequence analyses, including return time distribution, proximity walk, element focus, and vision distribution, we attempted to draw insights on awareness and attention to dependence and overall outcomes. Based on our analysis results, we give recommendations for research to more completely expose the role of attention to dependence during project design.
Formalization and reuse of collaboration experiences in industrial processes
Collaboration is a key factor for carrying out activities in industrial processes and an efficient collaboration is essential to accomplish an overall improvement of any process. In this article, we introduce a collaborative processmodeling framework, which allows evaluating collaboration throughout all the activities of an industrial process. The proposed framework uses experience management notions towards the creation of a repository of collaboration experiences. This experience base facilitates the reuse of past experiences to support decision making for the organization and execution of future collaborations. The article concludes by discussing the contributions and limitations of the proposed collaboration model.
Generation and Visualization of Release Notes for Systems Engineering Software
Designing complex systems such as satellites requires delivering design data with the associated list of updates regularly in a form of release notes. Creating release notes for system data delivery is challenging for system architects because it requires analyzing all resolved issues during a particular period of time and then summarizing them in a readable format for other architects. In this paper we present an approach for creating release notes. We performed an empirical study involving large amount of satellite projects data to categorize the content of release notes delivered by architects. We have identified the main patterns. We developed an algorithm that discovers these patterns given the history of project data. We applied our approach to system data managed in configuration.
