Model Driven Development for Mil/Aero Industries
The development and intelligent use of computer models by the military and aerospace industries are critical to their design processes. Designers can use model-driven system development to test and verify complex systems, which must be compatible with harsh operating environments and compliant with strict reliability requirements.
This approach allows system designers to create system models before physical hardware is available. The models can incorporate various technologies, including mechanical, magnetic, hydraulic, thermal effects, or other characteristics that can be described using algebraic or differential equations. Plus, a model-based design approach allows designers to leverage transfer function-, RTL-, algorithmic-, and even specification-based models.
Tools from Mentor Graphics allow our mil/aero customers to design digital devices that meet or exceed rigorous standards. Using specialized tools, you can avoid cost overruns, schedule delays, low reliability, and even product failures related to the development of large-scale systems and platforms.
Benefits of a Model-based Design Methodology
- Evaluate new ideas
- Optimize designs for cost and manufacturability
- Deliver the highest quality at the best cost
System engineers can create and analyze analog, mixed-signal, digital, and electro-mechanical designs with SystemVision. Explore concepts, specify system functionality, investigate architectural partitions, and integrate implementation of electronics, sensors/actuators, controls, and embedded software, all in one virtual environment.
