Have you ever heard the saying that a systems engineer is the chief cat herder? Have you as systems engineer ever been branded as the person who asks “Why?” all the time? A systems engineer often perceived as the person that says, “Why do you need that? No, that won’t work. No, that is out […]
For companies building complex systems whose stakeholders come from diverse engineering and business disciplines and need to have very precise and efficient communications, Jama Connect provides a collaborative, 100% web-based MBSE platform and a proven systems engineering approach to product development. Jama Connect provides a path to companies embracing MBSE where the application of collaboration, modeling, and methods reduces time and effort across the lifecycle. We call that path Jama Connect for Companion MBSE. […]
My initial intention for this blog was to talk about what I describe as MBSE tool maturity levels. And I will surely get around to those levels. But first I think it is important to draw attention to the definitions of MBSE that experts use and offer some observations that might be helpful to those […]
Toys to Tools – Keeping Pace with eVTOL Certification Standards Today’s market for electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) is one of the most innovative and fast-moving in the aerospace industry, so keeping pace with ever-changing eVTOL certification standards is no easy endeavor. eVTOL Applications The military led the way in eVTOL by transforming drones […]
This post is Part I of our two-part series on digital transformation. The future of Earth might depend on space. Governments from countries around the world and private space companies funded by billionaires are designing new space technologies that push the envelope of technology and complexity. Systems built to operate in the space environment must also be ready for […]
In this post, look at the benefits of a model-based systems engineering (MBSE) approach and cover how to overcome organizational challenges.
In this post, subject matter experts discuss predictions for airborne product and systems development in 2021 and how they might impact the way your team works.
In this post, we discuss the expected benefits of digital engineering, including better-informed decision making, increased understanding of and confidence in the system design, and a more efficient engineering process.
In product development, designing a good test strategy is challenging in a number of ways and requires broad, strategic thinking. The goal of testing is to ensure that you release a best-quality product that meets customer expectations as documented in your early design concept and requirements gathering phases. Here we’ve laid out the key elements […]
