Deliver the results that today’s business demands
These white papers, written by Vitech staff, address the value proposition of systems engineering as well as the fundamental needs and capabilities of model-based systems engineering. They are meant to be accessible to technical as well as business personnel. The papers offer insight into domain challenges and approaches, and delineate the benefits of a systems approach, helping project teams deliver the results that today’s business environment demands.
In this white paper, Zane Scott and David Long lay out the many ways model-based systems engineering is capable of representing information contained in a model, or repository. Each diagram communicates a specific dimension of information, providing insight and best connecting with a particular audience.
From “Begin with the End in Mind” to “Systems Come in Threes,” Zane Scott lays out nine laws that characterize the practice of systems engineering. Without a systems perspective, Scott says, unintended consequences can make the cure worse than the disease. Design choices can veer away from the customer needs that called for the solution in the first place. Sound systems engineering guards against such a result, and helps to create a positive outcome.
In this paper, Dr. Erton Boci looks at a key element of the Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen) and how to create a model-based design for it using CORE software.
