Maplesoft Makes Model Based Systems Engineering Accessible to More Engineers with New MapleMBSE
MapleMBSE is a new product from Maplesoft that provides engineers with greater accessibility to model-based systems engineering tools, helping them create,
maintain, validate requirements efficiently, with fewer errors
Maplesoft™ announced the release of MapleMBSE, a new product that enables companies to employ a Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) approach to requirements management without requiring every engineer on the project to be an expert in complex MBSE tools. Using an Excel®-based interface, MapleMBSE makes collaboration on requirements accessible to all stakeholders, not just the MBSE tool experts, and provides streamlined interfaces for each task in the MBSE project. This ensures system-wide collaboration on the project, while reducing the time and errors that typically come with using a standard MBSE tool.
The new MapleMBSE advantages include: Intuitive, Excel®-based interface for easily entering system definitions without having to go through a complex MBSE tool &...
The new MapleMBSE advantages include:
- Intuitive, Excel®-based interface for easily entering system definitions without having to go through a complex MBSE tool
- Automatic population of information into the MBSE tool, translating the engineer’s inputs into system structures, behaviors, requirements, and constraints
- Integration with standard SysML-based MBSE platforms such as IBM® Rational® Rhapsody® or No Magic™ MagicDraw®
- Rapid impact analysis of design changes to test for conflicting requirements, all from within the intuitive MapleMBSE environment
- Optimized tool views for common MBSE tasks, such as requirements, failure mode and effects analysis, trade-off studies, and structure analysis
- Simple interfaces designed to reduce many common errors that occur when using MBSE tools directly
- Customized implementations provided by Maplesoft Engineering Solutions experts to ensure that MapleMBSE is tailored to the organization’s exact MBSE process
“There is no doubt MapleMBSE saves valuable time,” said Masaaki Kubo, General Manager of Nissan Motor Company. “When we compared MapleMBSE with another MBSE tool and measured the time it took to perform common operations, we found MapleMBSE allowed our engineers to complete these tasks four times faster than with the other tool. MapleMBSE has a friendly and effective user interface which enabled Nissan engineers from many different disciplines, including mechanical, electronic, and electrical engineers, to quickly learn the tool and perform tasks very easily.”
“MBSE tools offer organizations tremendous value in how they keep a tight connection to requirements in every phase of the project; however, they are notoriously difficult to use,” says Dr. Laurent Bernardin, Chief Operating Officer and Chief Scientist at Maplesoft. “Research published during the development of MapleMBSE shows that the use of MapleMBSE resulted in a four-fold reduction in errors compared to a standard MBSE tool, and the elimination of complex, difficult-to-correct errors. It’s a practical tool with a quick ramp-up time that makes system engineering easier.”

Engineers - Stop Doing Algebra by Hand!
Manual equation manipulation is labor intensive, time consuming, and notoriously prone to error. Simply put, doing algebra by hand is expensive. When faced with expensive processes, engineers find ways to mechanize and cut costs. Math should be no different. Computer algebra systems mechanize equation manipulation, reducing the need for human involvement and hence eliminate a source of risk. Pioneered originally by mathematicians and physicists, they are now more capable than ever to address a full range of engineering problems. Read this whitepaper to understand the benefits of computer algebra systems in the context of various engineering domains, to see how symbolic computation offers simplified solutions for many engineering tasks, and to learn how to use calculation management software to reduce the overall amount of errors commonly associated with working by hand.
Calculation Management Done Right
In the marketplace of technical products, growing competition has required faster design cycles and iterations in almost every sector. Companies take great steps to invest in their most important assets - namely, the products they deliver. These products are comprised of various designs, techniques, and intellectual property, all of which are managed across an organization with careful thought and attention. There’s something fundamental to these company assets which is often overlooked, and responsible for the aches and pains that most engineers face on a regular basis. This essential company asset is known as calculation management.
