The Systems Engineering Closed Loop Process: The Key for Validation

Identify Systems Engineering best practices, from concept, simulation and test, to support early validation of system behavior.

Aberdeen Closed Loop imageThis data-driven Aberdeen white paper reveals some key challenges facing the manufacturing industry. Since 2009, product complexity has nearly doubled. This rapidly increasing complexity introduces risks and costs. System simulation is a key enabler in helping to manage system design complexity.

Download this white paper to see how Best-in-Class competitors are using virtual prototyping to improve testing, simulation and modeling. Creating innovative products require effective systems design to adapt on the fly, hit product targets and capture market share.

Aberdeen’s findings include:

  • For Best-in-Class, early stage simulation is almost universal; competitors’ simulation usage hovers at 50%.
  • Best-in-Class almost exclusively use virtual prototypes to simulate performance prior to physical construction.
  • Simulation is used by Best-in-Class to verify subsystem interactions, reduce change and rework costs, and to contribute to a closed loop process of improving simulation and testing.

Requirements management is another essential aspect to systems engineering, in that you need to link test results to all requirements. The combination of dashboards and linked requirements allow the Best-in-Class to be more successful and plays a direct role in the 8% reduction they have seen in the length of their testing phase.
