Trace customer requirements through to a finished design using systems engineering principles. A functional model provides a common language for mechanical, electrical and automation disciplines to work together in parallel, which helps you deliver designs faster and with fewer integration issues late in your design process.
Use the output of Mechatronics Concept Designer to continue to refine designs without the need to remaster the data—this can be done directly by multiple disciplines.
Quickly create and validate alternative design concepts early in the development cycle, leveraging easy-to-use modeling and simulation in Mechatronics Concept Designer (MCD). Unlike a model-based tool, MCD enables you to see what the design looks like and validate that it works.
While model-centric tools show you the geometry and allow you to model the parts, we go further and enable you to validate that your product works before you build it. The Reuse Library enables this validation, from which you can quickly add data to the functional model. This data includes joints, motion, sensors, actuators, collision behavior and other kinematic and dynamic properties for each component. This allows a physics-based, interactive simulation to verify machine operation, which in turn detects and corrects digital model errors.
