Systems Engineering At The Platform Level
Keynote Nick Smith, Mentor Graphics
This presentation explores how Mentor's Capital software models platform connectivity across abstractions. It shows how new technology allows companies to understand the impact of and respond to changes across multiple engineering disciplines.
Keynote: Importance of Systems Engineering for Aston Martin
Alan Bennett will describe the Aston Martin approach to engineering low volume, high luxury sports cars. Using examples from the recently launched Vanquish and the One-77 hyper car, he will highlight some of the challenges faced and how operating at a system level allows efficient delivery of complex networks with limited resources.
An Integrated Systems Engineering Approach - How trace Requirements to Electronics and Software
As electrical systems become ever more sophisticated, leading organizations are adopting a systems engineering approach to EE design. This session presents new integrations between Capital and IBM's Rational tools that support this approach. Requirements captured in Rational DOORS can be natively surfaced within Mentor EE design and implementation tools, allowing designers to understand the context of their work better and giving project managers impact visibility when requirements change. Together with task and test case management, this provides a robust environment that streamlines development processes while minimizing on-going IT costs.
Mentor Graphics provides a unique solution for Connected Engineering™ for the automotive industry. The Connected Engineering™ approach supports OEMs and supply-chain to optimize quality and cost with market leading technologies from start to finish. It covers the entire automotive E/E design flow from Function/Software/ECU/Electrical architecture evaluation through to implementation with AUTOSAR and Android or Linux based applications. Connected Engineering also encompasses Thermal analysis, Process Optimization and wire harness design & manufacturing and finally on-demand vehicle service documentation.
