Abstract:   Product Development Engineers are tasked with developing and meeting product requirements. Throughout the process they must determine whether the requirement can be met using simulation, test, or engineering judgement. The relationships between requirements and verification methods must be documented and tracked. Many other tasks may be involved in this development process such as DFMEA, DoE, Use Cases, State diagrams/machines, Reliability analysis, Schematic diagrams, ibd, and activity diagrams. Model Based System Engineering (MBSE) is a methodology that helps engineers manage this process. XLDyn is a MBSE software that use Microsoft Excel as the graphical user interface to author OMG SysML compliant system models. If required, data can be imported to XLDyn from other requirements management systems. SysML requirement diagrams can be automatically created with XLDyn’s one click model creation, then simulation and test verification can be easily added. The simulation and test verifications can be executed directly from the system diagrams; the diagrams and project summary table are automatically updated. 1D multi-physics simulation tools are integrated including XLDyn’s own XL1D. System Level DoE can be performed to help balance designs. Weight and cost can also be managed. This easy to use tool allows engineers to perform many product design/development tasks from within one systems engineering software tool. Documentation now becomes a byproduct of the development process.
