MBSE Integrated With Teamcenter Ties the Entire Cross-Product Lifecycle Together

A crucial component of Teamcenter’s product lifecycle management is MBSE (model-based systems engineering) (PLM). When linked with Teamcenter, it combines mechanical, electrical, and software product development with factors like cost, reliability, and manufacturability. By integrating MBSE with Teamcenter, you can specify what will be developed, give instructions on how to accomplish it, and manage the downstream development cycle, therefore generating the vital adhesive that binds the whole cross-product lifecycle.

When making domain-specific decisions, Teamcenter always keeps the broad picture in mind thanks to integrated MBSE, which helps it comprehend how everything fits together. Starting with defining requirements, creating programme plans, moving through the product architecting process, driving out interfaces, setting targets and attributes, identifying technical risk, and creating and capturing system decision models, the process then moves on to creating targets and attributes. The whole downstream development and delivery process for continuous engineering across the entire cross-product lifetime is driven by integrated MBSE.

MBSE is delivered to the enterprise through Teamcenter. Read more below.

Product Architecture and System Modeling

PLM-enabled whole product architecture creates the connecting thread for all subsequent product lifecycle disciplines. You can record your product architecture throughout the product lifecycle with Teamcenter System Modeling Workbench’s comprehensive architecture and system modelling capabilities, giving you total visibility into design choices. This enables the integration of the many domains (software, electronics, mechanics, etc.) throughout the lifespan of your product.

System Simulation Management

Maintaining 1D models as part of your product model management goals is just as crucial as maintaining your 2D/3D models when developing goods now that 1D models are producing product content. These 1D models need to start receiving the recognition they merit. Teamcenter makes it possible to handle 1D models effectively with other product models for more cross-domain data and process visibility and speedier innovation.

Technical Risk Management

A comprehensive, model-based approach to product safety and reliability is introduced by the Maintenance Aware Design (MADe) product line. Reliability modelling is included to the product lifecycle to anticipate reliability concerns before they lead to product recalls. This enables businesses to transition from isolated RAMS, unconnected FMEA, disconnected Fault Trees, etc., to reliability models that may actively drive product development towards safe and reliable products.


Change Management

Systems engineering elements are included into the broader PLM process with integrated MBSE. In accordance with accepted change management procedures, requirements, functions, logical and physical operations, processes, interfaces, targets, and other factors may be modified at the product level or as part of a process to modify the product architecture or system model. There are no longer any gaps between product architecture and the existing product baseline since updates can now be integrated into global product change planning and management rather than having to be managed independently.

Product Requirements Engineering

The value of requirements lies not in their capture, but rather in their ability to direct the creation of a product from the viewpoint of the client. Requirements may be assigned to different downstream functions, features, and product architectures (and vice versa) because they are a component of Teamcenter. You can also create reports, documentation, and dashboards to manage the requirements process.

Directly from the web or well-known Microsoft Office programmes like Microsoft Word and Excel, you can create, view, and update requirements.


Program planning and systems engineering

The architecture and requirement choices made in systems engineering inform integrated programme planning. These choices affect schedules, resources, and other things. It is possible to directly link requirements, functions, interface definitions, and other concepts to project tasks and programme milestones. Once formed, requirements, functions, test cases, and resources have insight into what must occur, when it must occur, possible problems, etc. while programmes run, enabling you to continually analyse programme risk.
