Systems Engineering

Systems engineering provides an overarching view of the disciplines of hardware, electronics and software that enables everyone involved in a project to be informed clearly and comprehensibly about every level of activity. If projects are to be completed with the given time, cost and budget constraints, those responsible need the best possible support.

 Windchill Modeler (formerly Integrity Modeler)

Windchill Modeler is a pragmatic solution for SysML, UML and Variability modeling, all integrated within a single tool. Create consistent, high quality models for systems, software and product line engineers to communicate requirements, consider design alternatives and make decisions involving the entire stakeholder community, regardless of their location. Windchill Modeler reduces the time and effort required to design products, systems and software by leading you through the appropriate industry standard diagrams and automating repetitive tasks. It also reduces costs by finding potential problems much earlier and simplifies the design process by modeling the way you build. On its own, Windchill Modeler enables model-based systems, software and Product Line Engineering (PLE).

  • Model-based systems engineering (MBSE) with SysML
  • Model-based software engineering with UML
  • Integrated product line variation modelling
  • Simple and powerful variant selection
  • Automated product model generation
  • Extensible meta-model and diagram notations
  • End-to-end traceability
  • Automatic, configurable and extensible model review
  • Profiles, generators and reversers for ARINC 653, IDL3/IDL3+, OMG XMI™, MARTE, SPT and UPDM (DoDAF & MODAF)
  • Fully configurable automatic code synchronization for C, C++, C#, Ada, Java and VB
  • Synchronization with Windchill Lifecycle Manager, Simulink® and DOORS®
  • Automatic document generation
  • Configurable user interface simplification
  • Live web access for model view

Windchill Modeler SySim

Early behavioral simulation saves time and reduces errors

Windchill Modeler SySim is fully model driven: architecture, behavior, simulation, definition and visualization are all achieved with SysML models. There is no need to focus on lower levels of detail such as code generation any longer. Windchill Modeler SySim is a reference tool for validating system behavior and ensures that your SysML model is consistent and formally correct.


  • Windchill Modeler SySim allows all the subsystem users to generate appropriate and intuitive simulation graphics
  • Graphical components are automatically generated
  • Easy handling thanks to forms that allow every user interface for a given simulation scenario to be created
  • Predefined graphical components for the most frequently used functions such as input and output
  • Easy development of new graphical components using the standard Microsoft .NET™ platform
  • Systematic review of complex system behavior, right from the beginning of specification phase
  • Early detection and correction of errors, inconsistencies and unwanted side effects
  • Time savings when creating and reviewing designs
  • Prevention of system errors

Windchill Asset Library

Streamline the Process of Publishing and Locating Project Assets for Reuse

Windchill Asset Library’s highly scalable repository and multi-user web browser user interface make asset publication, management and reuse easy. Quickly define your own catalog structure, asset types, contexts, keywords and states to match your company’s specific domain. Then user and role security protects your catalogs, enabling your asset publication process.

Windchill Asset Library is a true enabler for enterprise scale asset reuse. Its simple, secure and powerful user interface publishes assets to anyone who needs them. Asset meta-data, traceable links and management dashboard reduce the levels of complexity, help you plan for change, and prove real returns on your investments.

Windchill Asset Library also enables top-down, architected modular engineering. Systems, components and services can be specified, handed off for design, delivery and publication, and then passed back for inclusion. This Supplier-Consumer approach uses Windchill Asset Library as the broker in Component Based Development (CBD), Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) and Systems of Systems (SoS) projects. Communication is greatly improved with this common asset request and delivery repository, which is accessible within a team, site or organization, and between organizations.

Features and benefits:

  • Simple and secure web browser user interface
  • Publish, find and reuse
  • Interest registry and email notification
  • OMG Reusable Asset Specification (RAS) database structure
  • File type agnostic
  • Auto file interrogation and documentation
  • Model integration for CBD, SOA and SoS
  • User definable keywords, states and types
  • Reuse metrics dashboard
