SES ENGINEERING Studio is such a framework

Think we all can agree that Systems Engineering NEEDS Interoperability, right? We all know that maintaining the systems engineering thread is difficult since different technical processes are digitalized with different software tools. Our upcoming webinar will look into a CIMdata publication, which details how our tool, SES ENGINEERING Studio, provides an interoperability framework rigorously and helps you work with complex systems and projects!

Webinar Objectives:

  • Product complexity is increasingly a system-of-systems problem requiring effective, efficient systems engineering management solutions from product inception through operations.
  • Requirements must be written well, with no ambiguity. They must be shared as they are refined. Duplication of requirements leads to confusion, wasted time, and in extreme cases poor product performance.
  • Models of all sorts (logical, functional, structural, electrical, mechanical, equational, etc.) must also be authored well, with no ambiguity. They must also be shared as they are refined. Copies of any engineering items produced within the system engineering digital thread leads to confusion and wasted time.
  • Maintaining the systems engineering thread is difficult as the necessary technical processes are digitalized within organizations using many software tools (among them, existing PLM solutions), each with its own file management capabilities which causes copies of requirements lists.
  • Researchers have developed ontologies that provide precise languages and standards when authoring and refining requirements, model elements, assemblies, parts, tests, and other relevant data. Computer databases can help enforce semantic clarity when an engineering item’s grammar is defined and precise. Authors can then use these solutions to author the best requirements, models, and associated datum—resulting in clear, concise, precise, and measurable information.
  • The Reuse Company (TRC) provides solutions for knowledge gathering, classifying, and sharing, quality enforcement, across many disciplines each with their own specific solutions, e.g., requirements databases, Logical Modeling, CAD, CAE, ALM, etc. TRC ensures interoperability by integrating with these solutions. They provide systems engineers with their SES ENGINEERING Studio—a platform that assures requirements, models, tests, parts, equations, and many other engineering items are authored correctly and shared in a controlled manner keeping them visible all the time.

Juan Llorens – Professor at Carlos III University of Madrid and CTO at The REUSE Company
  • Leader of the KR Group (Knowledge Reuse Group) within the University, where he teaches different Software and Systems Engineering subjects.
  • Since 2008, based on a corporate agreement between the University and The REUSE Company, Dr. Llorens can defend TRC’s CTO role within his professorship. His current research involves the integration of semantic and systems engineering technologies for the digitalization of the system life cycle.
  • Full member of INCOSE (International Council on Systems Engineering), as well as past President of INCOSE Spain (AEIS). He built the INCOSE Knowledge Management and Ontologies Working group, and he is member of the Requirements Working Group. He holds a CSEP (Certified Systems Engineering Professional) accreditation and a ESEP (Expert Systems Engineering Professional).
