Virtual Twin Experience from Mission to Certification

Industries are increasingly adopting Systems Engineering to face unprecedented product complexity with highly regulated and competitive environments. From automated driving to smart building to medical devices, Model Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) is becoming the best practice to deliver mission-critical systems composed of mechanical/electronics (mechatronics) and software. MBSE enables to design, simulate and optimize the best solution, from its mission to certification and retirement

Dassault Systèmes solutions integrates requirements, systems architecture, cross-disciplinary modeling & simulation – including embedded software, validation & verification into one unified, collaborative and open environment. End-to-End traceability and change management support agile informed-decisions and ease the compliance to quality and certification standards.

A Comprehensive Set of End-to-end MBSE solutions

Systems Engineering solutions are built on industry-proven solutions (CATIA Magic, Dymola, ControlBuild, Stimulus, CATIA SCANeR)  and integrated into the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, enabling an unified & collaborative environment from Requirements to Systems Design to Virtual Validation & Test. Thanks industry standards support and tools openness, the solutions are modular, from point solution quick adoption to a full enterprise-level implementation. 

Our solutions are today deployed and adopted by users in major players from Aerospace & Defense, Transportation & Mobility, Industrial Equipment, High-Tech, Infrastructure & Cities and Life Sciences industries, enabling them to achieve:

  • Federation: The ability to:
    • Federate system engineering data, irrespective of the authoring tool, with end-to-end traceability for compliance assessment and impact analysis in the case of an engineering change.
    • Federate discipline engineering within a system architecture to master interfaces and predict system behavior in order to accurately specify  the solution under design.
    • Federate the system engineering experiences from local to global, irrespective of the authoring tool, in order to experience a digital replica of the cyber-physical system.
  • Governance: In a regulatory context, the capability to maintain in configuration, an authoritative single source of truth for compliance assessment with full control of the system engineering activities of the project.
  • Openness: Leadership in standards definition to support state-of-the-art modelling and simulation, and the support of interoperability tools  for semantic integrity and exchanges within the value chain.
