Abstract

Designing complex systems often requires engineers from multiple disciplines (mechanical, electrical, production, and so on) to communicate with each other and exchange system design information. Systems engineering models are a cross-disciplinary foundation for this process, but are not well-integrated with specialized engineering information, leading to redundant and inconsistent system specifications. The software provided here translates system models in the Systems Modeling Language (SysML) to physical interaction and signal flow (also known as lumped- parameter, one-dimensional, or network) files on two simulation platforms used in many engineering domains.
