MBSE Applied

As high-tech systems become more and more complex and the number of system variants grows, the high-tech industry seeks methods and tools to manage the consequences for their business (e.g., in terms of time-to-market, risks and costs in R&D, service, manufacturing, transport and installation). Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) is an approach to systems engineering for which successful applications have been reported in dedicated industries such as defence and aerospace.

In the webinar, co-organised by SERC and ESI, an ESI-study team will share their insights in MBSE for the commercial high-tech industry and speakers from SERC and from the industry will share their knowledge and experience regarding practical application of MBSE in a wide range of applications. Together with its industrial and academic partners, ESI has started a study to analyse how MBSE can also be successfully applied in companies such as ASML, Canon CPP, Philips, Thermo Fisher Scientific and Vanderlande.

International Digital Enablement Week 2021

Are you working in the high-tech industry, in R&D, in systems engineering or systems architecting? Then you should not miss this event! Over the past decades, the high-tech industry has fully experienced the digitalization of their products and processes. Consequently, innovation in high-tech industry is now largely enabled by digital technologies. Complexity of systems is increasing, and with it the complexity of the system of systems.

Are you interested to know how to deal with your legacy? Would you like to be informed about latest verification and validation strategies? Is systems modeling part of your systems engineering strategy? Is platform-based engineering a concern or a benefit? How to use field data in conjunction with system models and artificial intelligence techniques?  These - and many other - questions will be addressed in a one-week event that will feature a varied program with interactive sessions inspired by contributions of industry and research organizations

Every working day from 13-20 April there will be an on-line event from 14h30-17h30 organized by
ESI (TNO) and its national and international partners High Tech NL, OFFIS/DLR, SERC and TNO.
