The term “modeling software” is quite generic and broad ranging. On one end of the spectrum, software models can be implemented in common spreadsheets; at the other extreme they can be hand coded in traditional programming languages. In fact, if you were to do a survey of any company that does system engineering, you are likely to find a wide range of modeling tools in use – often times on the same project.
At the CAC, we bring an entirely new capability to the table with RHEA Group’s Comet / CDP4 software. Comet is a highly specialized modeling tool that enables collaborative and concurrent model based system engineering (MBSE). It does this by supporting a number of interoperability protocols that allow it to automatically exchange data with a number of different systems including Microsoft Excel, MatLab, IBM Rational Doors, Cameo and many more.
For example, using Comet / CDP4, you can extract information from high-fidelity simulation tools that model the fluid dynamic flows over a ship’s hull into the same “system-of-systems” model that is also being fed by a cost modeling tool and even an HR database.
