Systems Engineering On The Grander Scale
Cars & aircraft are arguably the most complex software intensive products today. But the distributed nature of computing on board these platforms means nothing works without the electrical system that integrates & interconnects components within the context of the overall platform. This presentation explores platform connectivity across abstractions. It shows how new integrations with Rational requirements, functional design, verification & project management tools can contribute to platform developments, allowing companies to understand the impact of and respond to changes across engineering disciplines. As the challenges and technical solutions are described, so the value of this innovative and compelling paradigm becomes clear.
