System Engineering

PROLIM Teamcenter software’s solution for systems engineering provides a first-of its-kind environment that companies can use to apply systems engineering concepts to product development. An integrated systems engineering solution, Teamcenter links requirements management and model-driven systems design with the rest of your company’s product and process knowledge enabling you to understand your products and systems in their entirety and optimize the trade-offs that must be made throughout a decision-intensive product lifecycle.

Define system/subsystem views Companies that provide discretely manufactured products can use the Teamcenter library of graphical building blocks to create multiple high-level system views called hierarchies. You can create hierarchies to represent various product views, including product structures, organizational assignments, cost analyses, manufacturing views, project management perspectives and documentation views. Once captured, these views can be interrelated, giving you whole product visibility for cross-product/ cross-view optimization.

Benefits of Systems Engineering – A whole system methodology to improving product development

  • By ensuring that your products meet customer value perceptions, time to-market windows of opportunities and quality related objectives is to achieve right-to-market
  • Accelerate time-to-market – by enabling your development teams to understand the entire impact of their design decisions as early in the product lifecycle as possible, thereby minimizing unnecessary rework
  • Meet customer expectations – by making certain that every aspect of your product complies with its related customer and regulatory requirements
  • Ensure compliance – by enabling program managers to measure and track design items that must comply with specific requirements and flagging instances when a requirement is in danger of being violated
  • Master product change – by enabling development teams to see the impact that design changes and product decisions will have across all views of a system – as well as enabling managers to monitor product development as it takes place
  • Optimize the whole product – by using high level product abstractions to interrelate and optimize complex, interdependent product constraints and subject them to tradeoff analysis before detailed design begins

This integrated approach to systems engineering and requirements management enables you to more effectively monitor project status, support design decisions, assess the impact of a change, verify performance and validate compliance to customer or contract requirements.
