Model-based Engineering.

With e1ns.aspects, developers use a visual representation to design a system/product. The intuitive and systematic approach of e1ns.aspects automatically builds the system structure, which is then used as a basis for all further activities in the product development process.

Different areas can work on a common system representation and extend the system model by adding various aspects. This means the functional, mechanical, electrical, or electronic behavior of the system, for example, are described at a central location that is accessible to everyone.

Transparent development processes, a common understanding of the system, and good cooperation in a network form the basis for fast and economical product development.

  • Different areas work on a common system representation.
  • Up-to-date data is always available.
  • Repeated tasks are avoided, and maintenance is minimized.

Why e1ns.aspects? Your benefits.

Aspect-oriented engineering
  • Any view of a system/element can be created to describe its behavior according to various aspects.
  • This means each engineering discipline can have the system representation it needs - mechanical, electronical, etc.
  • The central availability of all aspects simplifies decision processes in development.
  • The common system representation enables and promotes collaboration.
  • A graphic model provides project members with a simple introduction to the architecture of a system.
  • A current standard in systems engineering is used as the working method. SysML (Systems Modeling Language) is a standardized extension of (Unified Modeling Language) for the modeling of complex systems.
  • It can be started immediately, and no training in model development is necessary.
Integration in the product development process (PDP)
  • Modeled structures are automatically converted to a tree view.
  • The directory tree is used as the main product representation to conduct further analyses.
  • The people involved in the project operate based on the structure and provide the specifications (technical/functional specification), risk or hazard analyses, DVP&R's, etc., for example, depending on their area of responsibility.
Easy to use
  • Simple, intuitive, and in the web browser.
  • The graphic interface displays all elements of a system.
  • Elements are created to build a system or existing elements are simply dragged into the interface and dropped at the desired location.
  • A system can be divided into any number of levels (additional worksheets).
  • Elements are connected if they depend on or have a mutual influence on each other.
  • A connection between elements can have properties (force, signal, …).
  • Photos and images for the elements are displayed directly.

Interlinked with other engineering methods

As a central tool for the development, description, and monitoring of a system in the product development phases, e1ns.aspects is interlinked with the other methods available in the PLATO methods toolbox:

  • Requirements Management
  • QFD (Quality Function Deployment)
  • Functional Safety
  • Risk / Hazard Analysis
  • Design Verification
