Master the V-Model with Aras

Manufacturers today have to develop products differently than they have in the past, as product complexity increases. Design teams need to take a systems-level approach to product development, collaborate early and often, and create a Digital Thread for traceability across the enterprise. A natural place to start is using PLM to connect disciplines and share data across the enterprise.

The Evolution of Systems Engineering

Product complexity has grown exponentially in the last few decades and shows no sign of slowing down. In this short video, Pawel Chadzynski, Sr. Director of Product Management at Aras, examines how this has impacted the evolution of Systems Engineering.

Key Features

  • System level product design (functional blocks, model based)
  • System-based requirements management
  • Management of multi-disciplinary deliverables for hardware and software development and maintenance
  • Systems-based management of the evolving configuration of products and variants through the complete lifecycle
  • Multi-disciplinary modular technical documentation

Reasonable Systems Engineering for Smart, Connected Products

There’s no denying it: developing smart, connected products is one of the top priorities of today’s executives. A wave of new technologies, ranging from the Internet of Things (IoT) to Artificial Intelligence (AI), has opened up a world of innovative features for modern products. Modern executives are busy analyzing how their companies can capitalize on the movement through differentiation or new business models.

Future Directions For PLM and MBSE

This white paper examines how the complimentary approaches of Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) and Model-based Systems Engineering (MBSE) can facilitate the integration of engineering processes, tools, and data to improve productivity, quality, shorten cycle time, and reduce risk in the development process.
