Ansys Scade Architect
Embedded system architecture and design
SCADE Architect is part of the ANSYS Embedded Software family of products, which gives you a design environment for systems with high dependability requirements. It provides full support of industrial systems engineering processes, such as ARP 4754A, ISO 26262 and EN 50126.
This product features functional and architectural system modeling and verification in a SysML-based environment. It provides a strong foundation to deploy model-based systems engineering (MBSE) processes and best practices. A key feature is the capability to generate consistent and comprehensive interface control documents (ICD).
SCADE Architect has been specifically developed for systems engineers; the underlying SysML™ technology is hidden, making modeling more user-friendly and intuitive than standard SysML tools or plain databases.
By using SCADE Architect in conjunction with other ANSYS SCADE tools, systems and software engineers can work within the same framework. Developers can quickly synchronize the system model and the software subsystem components, ensuring consistency of the software architecture and modeling efficiency — for instance, for the management of I/O definitions. Delivered with SCADE Suite, SCADE Architect provides an integrated software engineering solution combining software architecture and software design in a single, comprehensive user interface.
With the release of ANSYS 18, ANSYS SCADE System has been renamed ANSYS SCADE Architect.
System & Software Architecture Design
The software supports functional and architecture decomposition via block diagrams, reusable/unique blocks for component-based modeling, import/export of data dictionaries, and data propagation across block hierarchy.
System & Software Architecture Design Verification
SCADE Architect enables systems design verification with tools for model consistency checking and model diff/merge.
ICD Generation and Synchronization with Software Design
SCADE Architect facilitates creation of interface control documents and refinement of software components in the Ansys SCADE Suite model-based environment.
Systems Requirements Analysis
The SysML-based system design tool supports operational requirements analysis, functional decomposition, architecture decomposition and allocation of functions to components.
System Design Environment Configuration
The software can be configured to meet specific group or domain needs, to build in industry standards like IMA, FACE and AUTOSAR, or company or project standards.
Solutions for FACE, AADL, Avionics Interfaces
SCADE Avionics package extends SCADE Architect with solutions tailored for the design of avionics systems. It includes solutions for the FACE Technical Standard, AADL, and avionics interfaces.
