WATERLOO, ONT. — Maplesoft recently released MapleMBSE, software that enables companies to employ a Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) process within their design projects without requiring every stakeholder on the project to be an expert in MBSE tools.
According to a release, MapleMBSE provides a streamlined, Excel-based interface to the systems model with task-specific views for editing the model directly, thereby ensuring consistent information and knowledge sharing across the design group.
The latest release, MapleMBSE 2020, offers improved workflow for creating and documenting models.
It provides more flexibility in working with the model including the ability to view and edit previous revisions of the model easily; revert changes and return to a previous state; and create, view and modify documentation for model elements for improved transparency and traceablity.
“Most project stakeholders aren’t trained to use complex MBSE tools, nor should they have to be,” said Paul Goossens, vice-president of MBSE Solutions at Maplesoft, in a statement.
“In the past, true stakeholder involvement has been very difficult to achieve, and yet it is vital to the success of the project and the organization. With MapleMBSE, it is easy for all stakeholders to contribute to the systems engineering process. This new release further improves the workflow to support efficient and effective model development and communication.”
