A modern product’s lifecycle is characterized by a high degree of complexity. It spans a varying number of engineering disciplines and many levels of abstraction. While Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) offers a model-centric approach to engineering management of a product’s lifecycle, the applied processes, methods, discipline-specific models and test environments are still separated by each involved discipline’s view of the System Of Interest. Overcoming this divide means viewing the challenges and opportunities offered by MBSE as a tool, method and process integration problem.
This paper will showcase an approach to federate the engineering environment and management using an integration framework. Such approach leverages the strengths of each method and tool as well as the power of traceable artifacts in a data management backbone. By introducing a layer providing unification and consistency throughout all managed artifacts, the presented approach evolves simple unmanaged processes towards a managed digital tapestry.
