Siemens System Modeling Workbench for Teamcenter Enables Multi-Domain Digital Twin
PLANO, TX, USA, Aug 23, 2018 - Siemens announced today the new System Modeling Workbench for Teamcenter software, built in partnership with Obeo, to extend Siemens’ model-based systems engineering (MBSE) offering. This solution will integrate the Teamcenter portfolio with both SysML general-purpose modeling language for engineering and Capella, an open-source modeling tool dedicated to system, software and hardware architecture. Building on its extensive MBSE technology, Siemens PLM Software is further enriching the solution with a strong commitment to open-source software, enabling these technologies to integrate with the multi-domain digital twin. Using Teamcenter to maintain the digital thread, this integration allows organizations to see and understand the effect of any decisions made across all available domains, ultimately helping enable more efficient and more informed product development.
“The result of this partnership brings engineers using Siemens PLM Software the benefits of closed-loop model integration between architecture and downstream engineering,” said Etienne Juliot, vice-president, and co-founder of Obeo. “The best way to find a good trade-off between reliability, cost, and performance, and at the same time to master the complexity of multi-concern systems, is to design all these aspects in a unique repository, as a single source of truth.”
“Obeo is our partner of choice to implement essential open-source or technological components for our solution for system architecture modeling, Capella,” said Daniel Exertier, Thales Model Driven Engineering Domain manager. “Over the last years, Thales has favored the emergence of an open MBSE Capella ecosystem with the support of industrial partners. The coupling of Capella to Siemens PLM Software is a great opportunity to better integrate product architectural design with the entire product lifecycle.”
Based on a field-proven methodological guidance, System Modeling Workbench for Teamcenter helps product architects better understand their customer needs, define and share the solution among stakeholders, enable engineering-wide collaboration, evaluate earlier to justify architectural choices, and complete master verification and validation. Users can benefit from seamless data exchanges between product lifecycle management (PLM) and SysML or Capella projects, as well as simple access to leverage the lifecycle of models, requirements, and diagrams.
With this solution, customers can now create and capture an integrated, multi-domain engineering product architecture that enables the downstream domains to communicate with each other within the context of the product development lifecycle. Enabling this multi-domain digital thread, which supports nearly all aspects of product development including mechanical, electrical, software, reliability, cost, manufacturing down to servicing, allows everyone to understand how a change may affect the full spectrum of processes within a product. Working in a truly integrated, multi-domain central repository of information, more informed product decisions can be made and greater innovations can be realized.
“System Modeling Workbench for Teamcenter provides advanced MBSE capabilities, building upon our core business principle of openness,” said Joe Bohman, senior vice president of Lifecycle Collaboration Software for Siemens PLM Software. “An integrated multi-domain digital twin, spanning mechanical, electrical, software, and manufacturing domains will be a game changer for customers looking to increase production efficiency and innovation ability, all while satisfying the end users changing needs.”
