In today's technology-driven, quality-demanding market, companies can no longer rush to market doing only lip service to systems engineering. Every large and established enterprises have suffered recently from forced recalls, government penalties and directives, and—worst of all—dissatisfied customers.
No longer is it acceptable to turn your engineers loose before the system has been defined formally. Analysis and modeling, not mere assurances of compliance, increasingly are being mandated to prove a product will be functional, safe, and reliable. International, industry-wide standards are emerging, such as ISO 26262, IEC 60601-1, ISO 14971, ISO 15288, and many others, which you cannot ignore and still continue in business.
Model-based systems engineering (MBSE), robustness validation (RV), safety cases (SC), and specialized testing (including test-to-fail), analysis, and documentation are part of doing business in today's economy. Enterprises today also must examine the way they operate internally to ensure what they produce is consistently excellent.
DSI's team of experienced professionals is committed to helping you prepare and comply with these new obligations and become truly world-class.
