Modeling & Simulation

Integrating Modeling with the System and Software Development Lifecycle

 

Many organizations are using models and model driven development approaches to manage software-driven complexity due to the challenges of today’s systems development. The need to increase quality while reducing cycle time, time spent on rework, and validates the need to design before building expensive prototypes. 

When modeling and simulation practices and tooling are disconnected from core development processes and technology it undermines the value of modeling and creates inefficacy, uncoordinated changes, and disjointed designs. For example, when requirements change in a model driven development environment, the domain engineers often find out too late (if at all), which causes expensive problems that could have been avoided. When you combined this unnecessary rework, extensive manual effort and increased risk of errors, it translates into longer cycle times and ultimately lowers profitability (not to mention the potential impacts to quality and safety), requiring the necessity for a better approach.

PTC Integrity’s native support for industry leading modeling and simulation tools offer significant benefits to the engineering organization engaging in model driven development, including: 

  • Implementing a repeatable proves to enhance efficiency
  • Completing traceability between all assets to increase overall quality while reducing cycle time and needless rework
  • Managing change to all artifacts such as models, requirements, and test cases, to increase quality and deliver on expectations
  • Version control models for easy roll back and comparison of previous versions or builds
  • Capturing and managing input/output from simulations to enhance quality of development and deliverables
  • Seamless integration of auto-generated code to the entire application lifecycle

PTC Integrity offers native integrations with industry leading modeling tools (listed in the following table). Additionally, PTC Integrity’s rich, robust integration technology makes integrations with other modeling and simulation tools possible.
