Model Based Systems Engineering

We offer a full suite of solutions for model based systems engineering including:  systems engineering, model based systems engineering, training,  software development, and DoDAF training and expertise.

Systems Engineering

Increasing complexity, shrinking budgets, shorter time to market – three realities driving change in the systems engineering domain. The practice is shifting from traditional document-centric approaches to model-based systems engineering (MBSE). But along the way, many teams fall into the trap of diagram-based systems engineering instead.  Let us show you the benefits of model based systems engineering and our web-based platforms to maintain those models and perform validation testing.

One Integrated Model

Requirements Management

Using integrated software platforms, we can help facilitate the process of documenting, capturing, analyzing, and managing requirements.

Requirements management is a continuous process throughout a project. We believe requirements management should be straightforward and convenient; thereby maximizing requirements capturing potential throughout the process and ensuring the details critical to project success do not go unnoticed and undocumented.

We provide requirements management support by helping to identify the needs and expectations of stakeholders and establishing traceability.

Coupled with powerful software platforms, we provide a modern, document oriented alternative to familiar word processing, spreadsheet and other tools traditionally used for requirements management.  In this way, we meet and exceed the baseline INCOSE requirements management standard and facilitate the development of high quality requirements by providing built in quality attributes to help avoid common pitfalls.

Testing & Evaluation

To deliver a complete design that can survive the rigors of audit and validation against critical requirements (“V&V”), let us show you how to close the loop and demonstrate responsiveness to true customer needs. Our senior systems engineers deliver V&V through an integrated simulator that checks logic and functional flow, as well as tests critical triggers throughout the design process.

Our application of the MBSE process results in a consistent, comprehensive, unambiguous, executable, and abstract representation to evolve and verify an integrated set of system, people, product, and process solutions that satisfy your mission requirements.   By leveraging powerful software platforms we build a singular abstract representation to record and analyze aspects of the project relevant to understanding the problem and its solution. From this one model, we extract multiple graphical, object, and textual views required to perform analysis, trade studies, and provide specifications to designers that are guaranteed to be both consistent with each other and accurate relative to your current model baseline.

Our verification process allows the design team to quickly and conveniently:

  • Develop verification requirements and plans
  • Validate requirements with physical, behavioral, and verification models
  • Manage all aspects of V&V from planning to results
  • Maintain consistency in requirements, behavior and architecture

Enterprise Architecture

An effective product strategy or system development study must incorporate a solid definition of the architecture and the operating environment. From the initial definition of the system boundaries to the final complete set of system specifications and required representations, system architecture is a crucial focus of the design process. Hardware, software, people, facilities, interfaces, and costs are just some of the components of a given architecture. The variety and complexity of these components create a significant challenge for the design team.

We help you manage all of the architectural components with ease through the use of highly connected models that link components with function to provide traceability and verification at all levels. This level of integration provides the basis for true insight across domains.

Our methodology coupled with powerful software delivers the perfect engine for greater insight earlier in your project. For example, what is the impact of a component failure? How does this affect the desired functionality of a given system or subsystem? What capabilities have been compromised? Or, from the other perspective: What effect does a given change at the requirements level have on the existing or proposed system design (or cost)? Our integrated approach provides instant answers to any number of queries that can’t be replicated in other tools that emphasize point-solutions or focus solely on representations.

Formal specifications, graphical representations, queries, data files for inclusion elsewhere – all are available via the integrated cloud-hosted software platform. Obligated to produce DoDAF products? We allow you to focus on the engineering first and produce any or all of the DoDAF products at any point in time.

Faster Architecture Results:

Our Systems Engineers and Software Platform enable the design team to:

  • Construct a variety of models with which to bound the system space
  • Identify and evaluate candidate architectures
  • Specify internal and external interfaces
  • Allocate the design parameters
  • Generate formal specifications and DoDAF products on-demand

Modeling & Simulation

Graphical Model Construction

In the systems engineering and architecting world, “modeling” refers to the creation of different abstract representations that express a specification of some aspect of a system or architecture. To convey all desired aspects of a project typically requires combinations of object and graphical modeling languages.

Our  modeling approach provides strict adherence to the idea that all of your abstract representations are interconnected. The representations of behavior and structure necessary to represent any architecture or system are all captured along with statements of needs, test threads, and interactions with actors and external systems in one tightly structured model that interweaves your model objects at multiple levels and in many dimensions.

Using our  application of the MBSE process and powerful cloud-hosted software, our Systems Engineers deliver results in a consistent, comprehensive, unambiguous, executable, and abstract representation to evolve and verify an integrated set of system, people, product, and process solutions that satisfy your customer needs. Our platform enables you to build a singular abstract representation to record and analyze aspects of your project relevant to understanding the problem and its solution. From this one model, you can extract multiple graphical, object, and textual views required to perform analysis, trade studies, and provide specifications to designers that are guaranteed to be both consistent with each other and accurate relative to your current model baseline.

DoDAF

Leverage the Power of Architectures for Project and Business Success

Be confident. Be intelligent. Enable intelligent architectures with Red Team Engineering.

Integrate

Move beyond disjoint architecture views and develop integrated architectures. Let us show you how to create DoDAF 2.0 viewpoints seamlessly integrated with requirements, analysis, and verification to provide a complete system definition.  Our integrated services & software approach frees your team from the high cost and error-prone approach of manually updating artifacts, and delivers on-demand generation of views and work products enabling you to focus your efforts where they are needed most – on developing quality architectures to meet the needs of your customer or enterprise.

Deliver

Leverage the power of architectures across your organization with intelligent architectures. Through the strategic application of systems engineering, intelligent architectures integrate the architecture, the system implementation, and the business enterprise to yield emergent business value. Gain new levels of insight and exploit new opportunities by performing trade-offs of business strategies, system architecture design strategies, and implementation strategies in a single integrated executable model. Leverage integrated support to explore engineering, architecture, and business alternatives and deliver on your best enterprise solution.

Execute

Validate your architecture through integrated execution of your operational and system models. Our integrated model provides the insight and inspiration necessary to develop defensible product architectures. Directly executing these models with push-button ease provides dynamic analysis of architecture performance. Rapidly verify dynamic integrity and evaluate candidate solutions to minimize cost and maximize insight.
