Model-Based System Engineering (MBSE) is an engineering approach to product development that involves creating a digital model to drive the design and development process. By focusing primarily on the engineering function, MBSE tools lacks variant details of complex configurable products, including its alignment across Sales, Marketing, Manufacturing and Service. For manufacturers of complex products, this approach can lead to gaps in the overall design, development and manufacturing processes.
To achieve a unified, common view across functions, manufacturers need to extend their MBSE approach with the different variant details required by multiple up- and down-stream systems including PLM, ERP and CPQ systems.
In this Tech Talk, we demonstrate how Configit Ace® can enhance MBSE by using a knowledge graph, a flexible, reusable data layer used for answering complex queries across data silos, for designing highly variable products from initial concept to a cross-discipline aligned design. Once the basic product design is completed, this knowledge graph can be imported into Configit Ace® via APIs, adding product logic and compiled into a solution space that can be leveraged for analytics and sales.
Listen to the Tech Talk and learn how to:
- Improve MBSE by using a knowledge graph as model for complex products
- Import partial or full product models into our powerful Virtual Tabulation® (VT™) technology
- Analyze your Solution Space to improve your Engineering efforts
- Use the created product model in Sales
