Data Science and the Digital Thread

Data Science and the Digital Thread

June 8, 2022 from 9:00 am to 9:45 am

Speaker: Dirk Zwemer, Intercax

As Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) is increasingly applied to real large-scale systems, two realizations have become apparent:

  • It must encompass a federation of all the separate engineering domain models, the Digital Thread paradigm, and
  • A range of best-in-class data science tools must be available to analyze and manage the millions of digital objects involved.
    In our presentation, we will demonstrate the first integration of Syndeia, an API-first digital thread platform from Intercax, with the Vitech GENESYS Server and the linking of GENESYS systems architecture objects with PLM, ALM, requirements and project management repositories. A particular focus is the role data science techniques can play in real-time system model development, including design reviews.

We will demonstrate model navigation, validation, impact analysis and digital document generation, using

  • Interactive digital thread exploration
  • Gremlin Query Language graph analysis, and
  • Custom Jupyter Notebook data analysis and visualization all operating through a common Syndeia Cloud REST API.
