Bridging the gap between systems trade studies, conducted at Concept Design and Preliminary or Detail Design phases, reduces overall program cost. The System Trade Studies solution provides an enhanced ability to view tradeoffs by leveraging an order of magnitude greater analysis to converge on optimal systems architecture that includes proposed technologies. At the heart of the Systems Trade Studies solutionis a multidiscipline analysis and optimization process that provides analytical results to validate system selection. In addition, the analysis history of system trade studies is captured and available for reuse.
Key Capabilities and Benefits:
Concept confidence is increased and overall program cost is significantly reduced due to increased number of trade studies
Concept fidelity (faster, more detailed, more alternatives) is higher
Preliminary / Detail Design phases and overall program costs are lower as a result of increased concept confidence and fidelity
Capture and reuse full analysis history (model, scenario, result) for use in future studies
