Manage and deploy workflows from MIL to SIL, HIL and VIL to answer specific stakeholder needs

Model-based systems engineering (MBSE), a systems engineering methodology focused on creating and using models, is commonly used by the automotive and aerospace industry to develop, design, analyze, verify and validate technologies from the initial concept phase to commercialization.

Increased vehicle design complexities due to increased powertrain and component technologies options (E.g., electrification) as well as the increase of new technologies (e.g., connectivity and automation) have increased the reliance on MBSE to reduce cost and time to market.

The number of technology options and the wide range of requirements and expertise require a large number of tools to be used both individually and simultaneously. AMBER has been developed to provide engineers with unique workflows supporting individual users need:

  • Automatically build individual system models: AMBER patented algorithm automatically builds Simulink system models from individual systems and subsystems, enabling the evaluation of a very large number of technologies. The capability has been implemented in Autonomie, RoadRunner and Aeronomie.
  • Manage individualized workflows for individual and multiple tools:
    • Simulate one to 1M individual vehicle to assess energy impact (tool: Autonomie)
    • Assessing the impact of connected and automated vehicle controls (tools: RoadRunner/SVTrip/Autonomie)
    • Quantify people and freight movement impacts (tools: POLARIS/SVTrip/Autonomie/GREET)
  • Evaluate technology with hardware in an emulated environment (tools: RoadRunner for Vehicle-in-the-Loop)

AMBER extensive use of metadata information enables the development and deployment of dedicated workflows throughout MBSE process.
