A new plug-in enables engineers to easily incorporate Maplesoft software products – Maple and MapleSim – into Phoenix Integration’s ModelCenter workflow integration and automation platform.
The plug-in enables engineers to take advantage of the reduced risk, improved designs, and shorter development times that are made possible using Maplesoft’s engineering tools, along with the efficiencies that come from a process integration platform.
A powerful application of this connector is functional verification of a system design by automatically testing MapleSim models against design requirements from model-based systems engineering software tools, such as IBM Rational Rhapsody or No Magic MagicDraw.
Engineers can directly connect the parametric design constraints, which are derived by the MBSE tool, to multi-disciplinary system simulations in MapleSim. When a change is made to the system parameters, ModelCenter calls MapleSim to run a simulation using the new parameter set.
ModelCenter then checks the simulated results against the design constraints, and generates a report of the compliance test results. Any constraint failures are flagged, enabling the design team to make the necessary design changes very early in the process.
