Feature-based Product Line Engineering and Model-based Engineering: Translating Engineering Gains Into Strategic Business Value
As market demand for product sophistication and diversity continues to grow, it’s critical that enterprises reduce complexity and increase efficiency across all aspects of designing, producing, delivering, and evolving their product lines. Feature-based Product Line Engineering (PLE) addresses this challenge by providing an enterprise-wide solution — one unified variation management approach across engineering and operations disciplines and software, electrical, and mechanical domains.
BigLever Software and No Magic provide an integrated solution, the MagicDraw/Gears Bridge, which combines the synergistic benefits of PLE and MBSE by allowing MagicDraw to work seamlessly with BigLever’s industry-standard Gears PLE Lifecycle Framework as part of the PLE Ecosystem.
This presentation will explore how the major engineering gains achieved through the combined use of Feature-based PLE and MBSE translate to significant strategic business value — including order-of-magnitude improvements in time-to-market and product quality, increased efficiency and product line scalability, and ultimately, greater competitive advantage.
