Addressing Product Complexity with Model-Based Systems Engineering

Manufacturing companies face increasing challenges and risks in developing electromechanical products with greater software-driven electronics content. These challenges will only become more pronounced as the Internet of Things gains traction, and electronic devices with embedded code further dominate the market.

Companies are responding by investing in initiatives to manage product complexity. Eighty-three percent of the companies we surveyed have deployed Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) practices for this purpose. The infographic highlights some of the trends in MBSE today.
