ModelCenter

Maplesoft and Phoenix Integration have announced a new plugin that enables engineers to easily incorporate Maplesoft software products Maple and MapleSim into the ModelCenter workflow integration and automation platform from Phoenix Integration. The plugin allows engineers to take advantage of the reduced risk, improved designs, and shorter development times resulting from using Maplesoft’s engineering tools, along with the efficiencies that come from a process integration platform.

MapleSim, an advanced system-level modelling and simulation tool, enables engineers to take advantage of modern techniques in modelling and simulation. Maple is a powerful math software tool for mathematical computations and explorations. ModelCenter is a vendor-neutral software framework for creating and automating multi-tool workflows, optimising product designs, and sharing engineering data and knowledge. It is used by leading organisations worldwide to reduce development costs, improve engineering efficiency, stimulate innovation, and design more competitive products. The new connector makes it easy to bring Maple and MapleSim into ModelCenter so they can be seamlessly incorporated into the ModelCenter-based engineering workflow.

A powerful application of this connector is functional verification of a system design by automatically testing MapleSim models against design requirements from Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) software tools, such as IBM Rational Rhapsody or No Magic MagicDraw. Engineers can directly connect the parametric design constraints, which are derived by the MBSE tool, to multi-disciplinary system simulations in MapleSim. When a change is made to the system parameters, ModelCenter calls MapleSim to run a simulation using the new parameter set. ModelCenter then checks the simulated results against the design constraints, and generates a report of the compliance test results. Any constraint failures are flagged, allowing the design team to make the necessary design changes very early in the process.

Other applications include using MapleSim and Maple for design space explorations, optimisation, and development projects based on executable requirements, all inside ModelCenter.

This connector can be freely downloaded from the Maplesoft website.

Maplesoft products can also be integrated with other process integration platforms, such as Optimus from Noesis Solutions.
