Effective systems development begins with a clear set of objectives, captured as requirements. In terms of building a model, we must consider several different types of requirements: Model Architecture requirements – which urban systems should be part of the model Model Simulation requirements – which performance factors should be calculated Urban System requirements – what

Modeling urban communities has been designated as a high priority target for improved systems engineering . World population is increasingly urbanized. In the US, the percentage of the population in metropolitan areas has shifted from 7% in 1820 to 51% in 1920 to 82% today. China looks to make the same shift

In Parts 5 – 9 of this blog series, we have built an expanded model of an autonomous vehicle while demonstrating how a federation of models in different software tools can become a unified specification of the system. Figure 1 shows the types of model elements and the types of connections that Syndeia has used

As the project proceeds, extensive effort will be put into both the physical architecture and simulation and analysis and new software tools will come into play. In this part, we build the initial models in SysML and use them to generate models in Teamcenter PLM (Siemens) and Simulink (The MathWorks). These models remain connected for
