Picture7Systems Engineering

Systems engineering is of paramount importance in insuring the development of successful innovative products. Too often this role is not executed well and poor results are realized. At 3-D Engineering we work hard to understand complex problems by utilizing methods to help visualize and quantify the solution. Examples are Functional Flow Block Diagrams, Data Flow Diagrams and Sequence Diagrams to graphically represent various subsystems and components.

Once the requirements are understood, it is the responsibility of the systems engineer to refine them, and to determine, along with other engineers, the best technology for a job. To accomplish this task may involve trade studies and a decision matrix or the Pugh method be employed. This process is iterative and provides a method to quickly converge on optimum solutions. The decision matrix is populated using techniques such as statistical analysis, reliability analysis, system dynamics, and optimization methods.

The system engineer develops design requirements based on functional requirements. Feasible solutions along with a sufficient set of constraints are generated and refined to produce an optimal solution. 3-D Engineering is well versed in the methods and modeling techniques that produce low cost and highly reliable products. Let us help you with your design requirements, technology assessments, feasibility studies and concept development/validations.
