Atego has launched Artisan Studio ParaSolver, an add-on module for its Artisan Studio, the company's standards-based, model-driven development tool suite. Artisan Studio ParaSolver speeds up the process of exploring complex SysML design alternatives through the execution of SysML parametric models, enabling optimal system design solutions to be determined quickly and easily. Artisan Studio ParaSolver achieves enables system engineers to calculate system measures-of-effectiveness (MoEs), such as cost, risk, reliability and performance characteristics and automatically verify design constraints.
Artisan Studio ParaSolver accelerates trade studies and increases design quality assurance while significantly reducing overall design time and costs. The new add-on enables engineers to quickly identify the best design compromises and determine optimal design solutions.
Artisan Studio ParaSolver connects SysML with solvers like Mathematica and OpenModelica. Equations used for computing MoEs are represented as constraint blocks while SysML parametric diagrams graphically connect system properties and MoEs using these equations.
Complex systems can be decomposed in Artisan Studio using SysML blocks and parts and non-functional requirements refined with constraint blocks. They can then be automatically verified by using the values in the SysML instance models which capture the design alternatives. By varying input properties, engineers can explore what-if scenarios to find best-in-class system alternatives, easily setting up trade-off studies by specifying ranges or discrete sets of property values.
Artisan Studio ParaSolver can also leverage the power of existing functional models and dispersed model fragments in this process, combining and orchestrating models held externally in MATLAB/Simulink and Mathematica.
