SIMPLIFYING MODEL-BASED SYSTEMS ENGINEERING

June 23, 2022

SIMPLIFYING MODEL
Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) is perhaps one of the most misunderstood and often abused acronyms in the engineering vernacular. Many companies struggle to understand how it will improve their entire product lifecycle and address the ever-increasing complexity of products. In many companies, executives and middle management experience a lack of understanding regarding the rapid pace of today’s technology and its impact on organizations and processes. Technical practitioners
may gain additional insight as they focus their energies on establishing strong MBSE practices. The successful implementation of MBSE includes transformations and enhancements in three key areas: organization, process and technology.

This white paper shares proper planning and implementation considerations in adopting an MBSE practice. It provides a high-level view, defines critical components to help success and identifies many  problematic areas to avoid in an implementation journey.

Optimising EPC Contracts in COVID-19 Crisis

whitePaper | June 10, 2022

The coronavirus outbreak (COVID-19), the prolonged quarantine responsesand the enormous economic uncertainty are affecting the normal development of EPC contracts. EPC stands for Engineering, Procurement and Construction and is a prominent form of a contracting agreement in the construction industry. They are not only carried out in the construction sector, but also in other industries such as power generation, oil & gas, petrochemical, chemical, water treatment, mining, among other sectors. The EPC model is used where an owner or employer wishes to engage a contractor to undertake the engineering, procurement and construction of a project. Normally the EPC Contractor has to execute and deliver the project within an agreed time and budget, commonly known as a Lump Sum Turn Key (LSTK) Contract.

Digital Twin Cities: Framework and Global Practices

whitePaper | April 20, 2022

The continued growth and success of cities is one of the great triumphs of modern civilization. Cities are home to the majority of the world’s population and generate more than 80% of GDP. Rapid urbanization has also brought about new challenges as cities have struggled with congestion, pollution, increased carbon emissions, inequity and exposure to natural disasters such as floods and storms. The COVID-19 pandemic and climate change have further intensified these issues. The United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development sets out the goal of “building inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable cities and communities”. Whereas these goals may be universally accepted, the path to get there is not as clear. Innovation and empowerment of digital technology are critical to transforming our cities. Policy support and institutional change are also essential.

The Top 5 Most Over-Engineered Building Components

whitePaper | November 14, 2019

When specifying the mechanical and electrical equipment for a building, it is easy to assume that extra capacity is a good thing, but it actually can be just as counterproductive as having undersized installations. In the first place, extra capacity comes at a higher upfront cost, which makes the building owner assume unnecessary expenses. There are also many types of equipment that experience performance issues when over-engineered, which can range from low energy efficiency to a diminished service life.
