Teamcenter for Systems Engineering includes the capabilities of both the Systems Architect and Product Requirements products. Systems Architect's graphical building blocks enable development teams to quickly describe complex products from a systems-oriented perspective - as well as to break down these high-level product hierarchies into fine-grained design elements, program constraints, and project notes. Linked design elements enable developers to align design content with customer requirements. Program constraints enable development teams to manage the product's cost, performance, and other related variables. With project notes, developers can explain their design intent, record their concerns, and raise appropriate issues of interest.
Because System Architect is seamlessly integrated with Teamcenter's Requirements Management capabilities, users can capture requirements documents from multiple sources, parse these documents for individual requirements, and retain those requirements in the same environment used for product lifecycle management (PLM). In turn, this integration enables users to incorporate these requirements into the workflow-driven processes used to drive engineering, sourcing, manufacturing planning, total quality, and change-related decisions. Teamcenter for Systems Engineering provides integration links to MATLAB, Simulink and Stateflow, thus enabling systems engineers to embed links to system requirements into their models, as well as in code generated using Embedded Coder. Teamcenter for Systems Engineering integrates MATLAB, Simulink and Stateflow designs and Simulink Requirements tests with the rest of the business process managed by Teamcenter.
